You've come a long way baby!
One year ago today, October 30, we were in China just getting to know our little girl. We excitedly went to a room where we patiently waited our turn to hear Meng Yun Niu. I was nervous that I wouldn't recognize her name. But as soon as I saw her, I knew she was ours. All that hair and those perfect pouty lips. There was no mistaking which one was our Gracie. It's hard to believe it's already been a year. She's been with us for a longer period of time than she was without us. I love that. I love her. She continues to be the joy of our lives. We celebrated 1 year with Chinese dinner out. Grace loved the white rice and Moo Shu Chicken. A year ago we were feeding her prunes, green beans, carrots, cereal and formula. Now she eats just about anything we put in front of her. Tomatoes and green beans are two of her favorites. She's talking up a storm and learning more and more words each day. Last night she sang the "Ghostbusters" song with me.
