Happy Adoption Day, Dolly!

One year ago today, our amazing, little miracle baby officially became part of our family.  Little did I know then how much she would change our lives.  This last year has definitely been a roller coaster - a little scary at times and a whole lot of fun!
We are celebrating tonight with a cake that big brother desperately wanted to make for his little sis and Thursday we'll all take the afternoon off, go out to lunch, take a very exciting trip to Department of Homeland Security for our one billionth set of USCIS fingerprints (okay, that MIGHT be a LITTLE dramatic), and then back to school for E's 4K Halloween Party that was cancelled last week due to a power outage.

Here are M's stats from her 15 month well-child appointment yesterday:

head circumference - 42.2 cm (below 3%)
length - 28.6 inches (7%)
weight - 21 lbs 8 oz (30%) - quite a feat considering she started life out at 1 lb 7 oz!!

This little lady has taught us so much over the last 12 months!  We love you, Dolly, and we are grateful for you!!
