My One Year Old...

Tessa is so stinking sweet. Sigh. I just love her to pieces. She rests her head on my shoulder and just hangs on. LOVE this. :)

Took her to the doctor for her one year check up. FIVE shots. That should be outlawed, poor baby. She is very healthy. 27.5 inches long (50th percentile) and 18 lbs., 11 oz. (15th percentile). It's hard to believe she is so small when she eats like she does. :)

Here's a few new pics. Happy New Year!

Well, since it's the eve of Tessa's first birthday, I better get Christmas posted about and done with! :)

Christmas was amazing this year. Our home feels so full of love and joy. We could not feel more blessed. We adore all of our children, and our children truly adore each other. So many adoptive parents have said it, and I feel it from the very bottom of my heart. We are given the very children that were intended to be ours, from the very beginning. Unfortunately, that means a great loss of their first family, a loss I vow to never forget.

Blast from the past...

We had a wonderful Christmas, and when I'm feeling a bit more energetic I'll download those pics and post. Until then, I'm working on getting Sara's 1-5 year album put together (order pictures) and I've had so much fun looking at all her old pics tonight. Had to post this one...taken when they weren't quite 2 and 5...aren't they ADORABLE???? :) Sigh...time goes by way too fast.

Happy New Year!! Here's to a fabulous 2010!
