Happy Two Years!

Two years ago today, Richard and I met this little firecracker for the first time.  Boy did she turn our family right upside down from the start.  I wouldn't have her any other way.  I'm not going to lie, she challenges me as a mother every single day.  But she was born to be mine and God handpicked her for our family.


I decided to let Gracie wear her favorite things in the world...her princess dresses.  I can't believe I've never done a photoshoot in them before.  She wears these dresses constantly.




 What a pair these two have become in the past 2 years.  You would never know they haven't been together since birth.  They were destined to be sisters and best friends for all time.







Happy Gotcha Day, baby girl.  We love you big as the sky...forever!

Wow, these 2 years have flown by...for me that is. I still remember seeing the picture of her sitting on your lap in the van going to Walmart in China. I have loved watching her grow these last 2 years. I laugh at every post that she is in because she is always doing something funny. She lives (and loves) so BIG, I just love her zest for everything she encounters. I remember meeting her for the first time in October 2011. She was buzzing around your house as quick as a fly dodging a flyswatter. LOL Happy Gotcha Day Gracie Joy!! I look forward to many more years of watching you grow and seeing what God has in store for your life.
