Happy 2nd Gotcha Day

Today marks the 2nd anniversary of the day the nanny handed me Allie:) Oh, what a happy day that was!!! She was 14 months old and weighed in at 15 pounds. She was being fed 6 bottles a day, some smashed apples, minced meat and bread. She was walking but could forget that she could walk! She was giving kisses and wanted to be held on her terms!! She also wanted to eat whatever you were eating and never took another bottle in China.

Now, she runs and jumps everywhere and weighs in at 29 pounds. She is right at 37 inches tall. She still gives kisses and wants to be held on her terms. She eats everything and loves her fruits and veggies. She still wants whatever you have on your plate. She also loves her sweets. She is a joy to be around and very sweet and thoughtful. She is also a clown and will try to tease or trick you whenever she can:)

She loves taking pictures and loves to pose for them!!!!

These are the same clothes she was wearing when she came into my arms!! They still fit, maybe I should say they almost fit her now since they were huge on her then. All the girls that day came in brand new outfits.

Painting Toes

Allie asked to have her nails painted, she picked a purple glitter! I did her fingers and her toes and she wanted to do mine!! So I said ok and let her paint my toes - I said no for fingers!!!
Its a good thing I did after my toes were done - it might take all night for them to dry!!

Allie painting my toes:)

See how pretty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here are our toes!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trying to brush Dallas' Hair

We went to the airport to meet a new friend Mary coming in from China, while we were visiting. Allie decided to take her brush out of her purse and brush Dallas' hair. Dallas let her for a few minutes and then decided she didn't want to anymore. The pictures show how Allie decided Dallas needed to sit down to have her hair brushed and then to lay down to finish it!!
