Month Since Gotcha Day!

Yikes! A little behind......
Monday will be time for the one month home post!

It is hard to believe it has been a month since
 we  held our sweet daughter in our arms for the very first time.

Christmas morning.
 One week after we arrived home.

Sarah and Jaden are doing wonderful together.
Jaden loves bossing I mean helping her big sister out. ; ) 
The first day out on her bike she had a few crash and burns and she has done great since then. She loves riding her bike. She also loves to run. She ran in the Special Olympics In China. She is going to keep her momma in shape! Sarah also enjoys being outside just like Jaden and I. The pool will be a new and interesting experience for her this summer.

When Sarah first saw the dog she typed into the
translator "I fear that animal very much".
The pictures say it all!

I love this picture.... it shows how she is becoming a little more comfy around us.
Unscheduled stop............
I wasn't really planning on going to Build a Bear.
As we were passing by the store Miss J saw Hello
Kitty and wanted to check her out. Well we made
the mistake of going inside. I had already decided
with just having Christmas that we were done spending
for a while. Well........ Sarah really liked Frosty. She
giggled when we lifted his hat and it made a little magical
sound, the flower on his hat and his cheeks lit up. To
add to that he was on clearance and I new if we waited he
would be gone. So I talked with Miss J and she very
graciously agreed we should have Sarah get Frosty.
So Miss J having had a lot of experience at Build A Bear
showed her sister the ropes. At first Sarah thought it
was strange and then all of the sudden it was as
if she let the little kid inside out and really enjoyed herself. :)

Having fun air drying and brushing.

Oh, and she named her Frosty the Snowman.....

( Melted this momma's heart. )
The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
Psalm 126:3

  5. Kathy! I can't tell you what a blessing it is to see Piper have a home. And she's such a sweetheart, oh my! And that gorgeous long hair--wow! And when she smiles she smiles with her whole face--and her inner beauty shines through like a bright light!

    Bless you and your family--so good to see her home and happy!
