Posting at SHINE

After almost 3 years of posting to this blog I've decided I am going to simplify my life and put all posts (for all my children!) on my "photography blog": SHINE!
I hope to see you there!

Our Little Acrobat!

Tia wanted to hang from Isabella's bar so we put her up there - and she can hang on it and bring her legs up!  Isabella remembered she still has her leotard from her first Gymnastics "snowflake show" when she was 3 years old so we of course had to put that on Tia.  Seriously she had a smile on her face in every single photo!  This little girl is amazing!  As you can tell Isabella and I are having loads of fun with our little Chinese, American, Australian Acrobat :)

girls go shopping!

Getting ready . . . .

which shoes would you choose?  Tia ALWAYS chooses the ladybugs :)

The kids are on Fall break, the boys were busy so the girls went shopping!  Here are some photos of Tia  modeling the outfit Isabella chose for her for our fun day out!

playing on the trampoline.

Tia loves the trampoline! I cannot believe how she has gone from being exposed to so little in her life to LOVING the trampoline, being thrown in the air, swinging really high on a swing and generally being a wild and crazy girl! She is so OUR little girl!

our little biker chick, and her brother too. . . .

These little cycles are a favorite toy at our house - inside and out :)

The weekend with Tia.

Mom, Is this how you want me to stand up so you can take a picture?
Bella, please play with me?!
Daddy will play with me!

Mom, do you actually think this looks cute?
I don't think so!

Grandma, I thought you might like to know that . . . . .
Jonah, wouldn't you rather play Peek A Boo with me . . .than play that silly guitar?

1 month ago today . . . .

. . . we sat nervously a government building in China waiting to meet our baby girl. At 10:30 am a woman walked in carrying the most beautiful, scared looking little China Doll we had ever seen. Finally the moment we had waited 7 months, or our entire lives for, had arrived.

We love you Kristiana Hope Witt. You fit our family to a T!

A few photos for the fan club :)

I love the way babies sleep :) Tia almost always has her legs like a frog.
Bathtime . . . she loves it now! She will even play in an empty tub. Look at her skinny legs (I think the water makes them look even skinnier) and I was telling people she is getting chubby . . . . At 19 pounds, I guess not!This outfit was a garage sale find by my friend Jenny, Isabella wore it at 8 months and I put it on Tia to see if it fit. It does! I have a great photo of Isabella wearing it and I am really excited to get one of Tia also, an unexpected surprise. Isn't it sweet?
