November 5, 2012Madeline Nian Day!! Five years ago we met our Madeline! What a look! Bless her heart, so unsure about what was happening. Too this day she does not like new situations! I am so thankful that we got to know her as a baby…… I love that her cheeks are still so cute!!! We celebrated today since we could all be together! We are not going to tell her that the actual date it the 5th until next year:) We went to the zoo and met all the bigs for dinner at her favorite Mexican restaurant she was precious. I have to say that our trip to Cincy was good for Madeline She has chosen to stay at home again when Janie and I go back on the 13th That is a huge step for a child that NEVER wanted to be away from me I came home to a child that acts like a big sister now She hugged Janie so big and kissed her on top of her head I stared in disbelief and was so sad not to get a picture She wrote a note to Janie at dinner the other night that said how much she loves her the jealousy is at bay right now and this Mommy is thrilled! A few pics from our day:) only on gotcha day does a child get to eat a Christmas cookie for breakfast:) It seems like John Parker is always with us since John David needs some male support. He wanted to push the stroller since he is the youngest in his family:) Janie copies EVERYTHING Madeline does! Yesterday was the first day Janie has really acted herself, today was no different:) opening one of her gifts from China… I’d say she likes the tiny porcelain dolls! our girl Madeline you have blessed us so very much your heart is big and loving when you do love, you love big you are starting to trust you are silly funny goofy smart beautiful happy moody girly girl adventurous creative you love Mommy Daddy your family your teachers Carson chips princesses bugs animals Blackie, your chicken silky stuffed animals Mcdonalds and so much more We love you as big as the sky and the clouds with ice cream, caramel sauce and cool whip!
