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.
