Happy Two Years, Baby Girl

I can hardly believe it!!  It has been 2 years since we walked into that room in Nanjing, China and laid eyes on this sweet, scared little girl!!

Can you just believe the hair???? Here's a quick look at Miss Wesleigh has grown and blossomed in the past 2 years: Wesleigh has been a joy since day 1. She is the sweetest thing ever and tells me I'm her best friend quite regularly.  (Totally melts my heart every time!)  She loves to dress up and wear sparkly bows. She loves jewelry and especially her earrings.

(I went a little overboard on the pics, but I just couldn't help it!)

Jan 2012-4314sweet color love sapphire We have come a LONG way in just two years! Wesleigh not only became a little sister, but a big sister too!  She learned to love her family, the beach and baseball.  She learned English, started school and ballet and welcomed a new sister into her world.  She has been nothing short of amazing.  I am in awe of this little girl and I can't wait to see what else God has in store for her!!

Happy Gotcha Day, Sweet Girl!  We are so blessed that God led us to you!

It's hard to believe it's been two years, but Eva has been home almost two years too. Wesleigh is just adorable, and I love seeing the pics of the two years. I wish I would have known you guys were in Cincinnati! We live right across the river in KY, and there are a few of us in our adoption group that would have loved to meet you guys! :o)

I reconnected with you on FB and started following your blog while yall were in China. It seems like yesterday when you brought her home. She has grown into such a beautiful, sweet little girl. It was so nice to see all the pictures and to see God's hand at work in her life through the transformation these last 2 years. Wesleigh is a truly amazing little girl. Happy Gotcha Day!
