A Month Ago Today...
...our family increased from six to seven. I can hardly believe that it was just a month ago that my life was forever changed, once again. We left the hotel in Beijing, China that morning of October 25 as a family of six. When we returned later in the afternoon, our family was complete... a family of seven.
For a month now, we have enjoyed this precious girl more than words can express. She has gone through such a transformation during this month we have had together. The screaming baby that we first came to know and love has become a girl of many smiles, laughs, giggles, and squinty eyes. The somber and reserved look we constantly saw on her beautiful face has been replaced with cheesy grin and a glow in her precious, black eyes. She is no longer worried and scared. She is HAPPY. She loves everyone in the family and is becoming more outgoing with those around her, too. (And yes, she has her fair share of whining, too, but only because she LOVES to be held and therefore does not love to be set down!) She is a JOY and her JOY is apparent on her sweet face. What a long way she has come in just a month!
I love you sweet Katherine MeiLing! We have loved every minute of our first month with you! :)
