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!

One year ago today . . . .

we met and fell head over heels in love with this little peanut. She was 19 months old and weighed 17.5 pounds and was almost 29 inches tall. She could crawl a little but couldn't stand or walk without help.
Today she is 2 years 7 months old and is 27 pounds and 35 inches tall. That timid little girl has become our assertive and confident daughter (who it is almost impossible to get a good photo of :). Today she said sentences that included "I want some yours" (about my ice-cream - note the assertiveness!) & I want more ice-cream. She sang the ABC song from beginning to end getting all the letters in the correct order. She does somersaults and runs circles around our hearts :) What an amazing transformation! She is our Princess of Quite-A-Lot! We know we are incredibly blessed to have her in our family. Happy "Forever Family Day" to our sweet little Tia.

Oh Happy Family Day! I cant believe it's been a year already. She has changed so much. She's really blossomed! Both pictures are just precious but the new one is so beautiful!

Thanks for the note on my blog with the Ukrainian baby. I'm a missionary living in Ukraine, but also working a lot in Romania! Your daughter is beautiful! Sounds like you've got quite a family! I'm single, but my friends' kids have won my heart! Keep in touch. Tammy
