One year! And almost 3 years old!

It's been a year (last week) since we brought Maddie home. We adopted her on 3/3 and came home on 3/15. I can't believe it's been a whole year. And only a year. Feels like she's always been here. Same with Dylan. Speaking of whom, little man will be THREE YEARS OLD in 3 days! We've had to delay his party due to some family being out of town on both sides, but he'll have a party at school that day.

Both kids are doing great. Maddie and mommy just got over strep throat, but other than that, everything is good! She's really starting to talk more now, and I learned last night that she knows her colors! She had a bowl of fruit loops and picked them up one at a time and named the colors. I about fell over. She's so smart. Takes after her big brother!

Here are some new pics, for your viewing pleasure!

I'm so happy to see you post! The kids are gorgeous beyond belief, and I can't believe how much they've grown. Dylan's three now... unbelievable. Thanks for the photos and the update. Hope you guys are doing great!

Hey Stephanie~
I don't know if you remember me from the PO boards or not. Last we talked I was preparing to adopt from Vietnam. Well that didn't work out...but we did adopt domestically! <3 We have a wonderful 10 month old little girl.

I cannot believe how much Dylan and Madison have grown! The last pics I saw of Madison were from right after you brought her home.

Glad to see you are blogging again!
