A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

One Year and Baptized

Precious is now a year old.  She was baptized the day before her first birthday.  What a miracle!  That almost never happens in an adoption from foster care.  We are so blessed.

At her one year old checkup, she weighed 23 pounds.  I've upgraded her clothes to 18 months size.  She is cruising around holding onto furniture or her push toy.  She also crawls faster than you can believe.  Where'd she go?

Precious has a few words.  Her first one was "Hi".  Amazingly that was BB's first word too!  She has said "Ma Ma Ma" and today's word was "Tasha" over and over from her high chair this morning as she taunted her with food!  She has repeated/mimicked a few other words as well.  Unfortunately, she has picked up BB's screaming ability, although hers are more likely to be joyful, at least for now.

I think she is done with baby food.  She almost refuses to be fed, wanting to feed herself instead.  Often she takes food off a fork and puts it in her mouth.  Most of the time she is not picky at all.  Today she did allow me to feed her some French onion soup!

Precious is such a joy!  Her cute curls and smile can win over any heart.  We are thrilled she is part of our family.
