One Year Ago Today...

we received the call! A little girl in Jiangxi Province, China was waiting for us to come and make her part of our Forever Family. Then, Fu Ni Run was 8 months old. Today Lily Rose is 20 months old and has been home with us for over 10 months.

According to our referral, ONE YEAR ago, Lily Rose...

weighed 13 pounds...TODAY she is a robust 24 pounds.

could not sit...TODAY, she can sit, walk, twirl and go up and down stairs.

was described as suspicious of strangers...TODAY she is STILL suspicious!

liked sweets....TODAY she LOVES sweets.

favorite activity was taking a bath...TODAY, not so much, but she likes it as long as we don't wash her!

loved to be held...TODAY, as long as it's mommy or daddy, she still prefers to be held more than anything else (other than eat!)

cried before falling asleep....TODAY, alas, some things don't change. But if we're lucky, she'll fall asleep after just a few minutes of crying.

was beginning to babble...TODAY, she says "Uh Oh," mama, dada, kitty and bye bye (but only when SHE want's to!)

was described as impatient...TODAY, her impatience fits in well with her two impatient brothers.

slept in a room with 8 other babies. TODAY Lily Rose, sleeps in a crib in her own room in a house with her two big brothers and her adoring mommy and daddy! We are so happy she is a part of our family.
