One Year Ago..

I cannot believe a year has gone by and how much has happened in that year. Here is Joe receiving JiaLi on Gotcha Day and then calling me to let me know he is holding her. How I sat by the computer just waiting for the pictures to be posted---of course it took a while--even though JiaLi appears to be sleeping in the picture, it was not quite the case when Joe returned to the room. Of course, I, on the other end of the phone halfway across the world, was just happy to hear her--I couldn't touch her, I couldn't smell her, I could see her in pictures but just to hear her cry was such a thrill for me-- And here she is now(a month ago) --this is my favorite picture we have of her alone and below is my absolute favorite picture of her. Of course, she is happiest when she is with one of her brothers or sister. Which is a good thing in our house:) What a love she is and how much love she has brought to our home amazes me(us) everyday. It really is like she has been here all along.

LOVE IT!!! Thanks for my afternoon cry. I never noticed before but in that gotcha photo she kind of looks like Annslee... Oh, and I need to send you the one I snapped before the babies came out of JiaLi and JiaNa fighting over a veggie stick. At the time I didn't even know who they were, I just stuck my camera in the door and snapped...lucky me to get my own girl in the shot : ) Congrats on family day!!
