thirsty and hungry baby! She couldn't get enough to drink! She tried to eat the banana peel
We noticed a baby girl that LOVED to be rocked to sleep but who possibly
We noticed a little girl who just LOVED attention, kisses, hugs but who most likely
never got it. Definitely not from a family of her own!
Did you see her growing as these pictures were taken? I sure did and can!
Its crazy to think that she never knew what it was like to be experience Christmas! To celebrate
the birth of Jesus, see the decorations, receive gifts of her very own!
But she does now!!! This was her first Christmas in 2010 :)
First snow :)
She had never experienced a birthday that was celebrated in honor of her! As a matter of fact, her birthday
was only seen as the day she was abandoned and deemed unworthy of love and parents. She now knows
what it is like to have family and friends celebrate the day of her birth!
This was her first birthday at home although it was the day she actually turned 2! :) In 2011!
First Valentines day :)
She had never experienced even a real bath! She had always been "washed off" and was actually
terrified of water! The first time I tried bathing her, she clinched her nails into my chest and screamed
to the top of her lungs! I had to continue "washing her off" for the next several weeks. Finally, I see that
this couldn't continue and she was going to have to get use to it. After only four times of toughing it out, this is what we got :) Notice the belly :) haha
First Easter :)
Not only a bath..but this too! Swimming... :) This was her first summer home in 2011!
One HUGE and very significant thing she didn't know before was what it was like to have any
small amount of Freedom/Independence! She most definitely had never celebrated Independance Day!
She has now :) This was her first indpendence day in 2011! Does she look adorable wearing red, white, and blue!!!
She never knew what it was like to go out for the evening in the mountains and just have a day
with mommy and daddy :) She knows now!
And some extra love and attention :)
She never knew what it was like to go on a family vacation! She knows now!!!
She never knew what it was like to dress up for halloween and have fun :) She knows now! Her first halloween home! Isn't she the cutest little lady bug ever??? :)
Another Christmas has passed. Her second Christmas home! Christmas 2011!
She never knew what it was like to go to the park for a day, play, and have her picture taken! Fall 2011!
She never knew what it was like to have someone LOVE her and celebrate Valentine's Day with her!
She knows now!
Second Easter :)
She never knew what it was like to have her own room! She knows now! This was this year in the spring!
