Happy Birthday Wesleigh Jane!!

It's my sweet baby's 2nd birthday today!!
One reason I was so frantic to get to China in January was so we could spend this birthday with her.
She is such a joy and amazes me with everything she learns everyday. Today she started puckering to kiss and says "myaaa" when she gives them. She picked up one of my adoption books that has the picture of a little boy about her age on it. She started kissing the picture! Makes me wonder if he reminds her of a friend she left behind. I know that one of her best friends in the orphanage was a little boy.

Yes, I dressed her up in this JUST to take pictures! I can't for her to wear it somewhere...it is super cute!! You can't really tell in these, but the dress is long and there are matching leggings underneath.


Check out the little feet! How cute is that!!

Cade was chasing her around the living room.



...and showing her the SNOW!! Yes, we have had our 2nd snow day this winter! I think that's a record. So, since Miss W has been home (8 whole days), the Saints won the super bowl and it snowed...AGAIN!! I think we'll be keeping Miss W around ;)


Here's a picture of the snow. This is about all we got, but it was pretty coming down. The boys got out in it for a little while, but not long. It's been raining forever so everything is super soggy and yucky. It's already melted now.

As I type, another great milestone is happening...Wesleigh is napping in her crib in her room!!! Whoo Hoo!! Granted..she doesn't know she's in the crib because she was asleep when I put her in there...but she is ;) Baby steps, I tell you!!
I'm going to try to answer a couple of questions I've been asked while I have a minute (because there's nothing in this house that needs picking up or cleaning ;). I was asked where the pink outfit with the tunic and leggings came from. That was something I bought a good while back from a local boutique. It was on clearance and I couldn't pass it up. It just happens to fit!
I have also been asked about her bows. Alot of her bows, I bought here. She is super fast and has great prices. I've loved everything I've gotten from her. There's also a local girl that makes gorgeous bows that we've been wearing. I can bring outfits to her and she matches bows to them! How great is that?!?! Around here, the bows Wesleigh wears are everywhere. It's just what we southern girls do!
I was also asked if Wesleigh was in foster care. The answer is no. She has been in an orphanage her whole life. I do have to add that she is right on task developmentally. She is doing all the wonderful things a 2 year old is supposed to be able to do! I can tell she was well cared for.
That's all I can think of at the moment. I think I'll work on this disaster area we call a home ;) Wish me luck!!!

Cade can sing this verse to her: "We love you we do. We love you we do. We love you, dear Wesleigh, we love you we do." Happy Birthday...your blessings are just beginning.

Happy birthday to that sweet baby girl. I am sitting at work with tears in my eyes thinking about how one day I will have a little girl to call my own. At the moment I am doing mounds and mounds of paperwork and am not sure if that day will ever come. I look at your blog and it gives me hope. I will keep pressing on through this because I know in the end their is a little girl out there that will be perfect for our family. Thanks for keeping us all updated even though we don't know you...you are a bright light for those of us just in the beginning stages!!

Your little Wesleigh is beautiful. I have taken so much delight in following your blog. I picked it up from my niece's blog. God has blessed you abundantly and your gratitude is so evident.
I love the bows so much and would like to know where they could be purchased. Is it possible to give a name or phone number. I would appreciate hearing from you.

Love the outfits and her sweet little feet. Such a cute picture of Cade showing her the snow. She is so blessed to have three loving brothers.

It's wonderful that you feel she was well cared for in China. I hope you can learn more about her little orphanage friend some day.

Don't know you- just found this blog. We adopted a little girl from Viet Nam in 2006, and we named her Wesleigh! It's an unusual name and just found it odd that we both have girls adopted from Asian countries named Wesleigh! : )
