18 months old

I can't believe my baby girl is already 18 months old. Where has the time gone? I feel like she has been in our arms forever, but really it has only been almost 10 months. People always ask me how is Gracie has "adjusted"....Some seem surprised when I tell them how wonderful she is doing, and how much she is talking, learning , and growing! But seriously it is all because of God's hand....He calls us to take care of the orphaned and He sure is not going to leave us, he helps us through the whole process! She bonded to us right from the start, and I feel adjusted fairly quickly. For us, it seems as though she has always been with us, always a part of us! We are so blessed with this sweet little baby girl. Her peronality is amazing! 
Above it a picture of my invitation to our friends and family to celebrate with us on her adoption finalization. I know it is two months later, but the holidays were really busy, so now finally Im throwing together a party for a nice celebration...I think we all deserve it, and it will be nice to see everyone that was really praying for us during that time...and still continue to pray for our family. Be looking in the mail this week. :-)
Getting bundled up to go get kids from school, She did not want her photo taken..can you tell? heehee
Some of her new milestones include:
Talking alot, new words every single day..
Deciding she want to go on the potty like the big kids do
love playing on the computer
Pouts if she does not get her way

She will initiate a hug and kiss now
Much more affectionate
Really enjoys to be read to
Like to be at the dance studio with mommy
Hates when mommy has to go anywhere without her
7 teeth and getting two more way back ones
likes to go out side in the snow

Eats everything and anything
Easy going, and so happy!
We are blessed!
