It's hard to believe that we met our sweet girl for the first time just a few weeks ago.
It feels as though she has been with us forever.
We have seen so many changes in her in such a short time.
Her personality is emerging more and more each day.
She flashes us that beautiful smile that I longed to see those first days in China
and it melts my heart each and every time!
Her adorable little belly laugh is so cute it's contageous.
She loves to explore and try new things.
Each day is an adventure for this little girl.
I imagine it will be that way for a while as she has many "Firsts" to experience in these upcoming months.
Every time I look at her cute little hands, I think of that faithful night in China when she reached through the crib and grabbed my finger for the first time. It was a big moment for both of us and a turning point I will never forget.
Even though she doesn't always hold onto to my finger, I see her holding onto her new life and grasping it with all of her might.
We couldn't be more proud of this little girl for all she has endured and overcome in her short little life. She has transitioned so well and is really beginning to form bonds with all of us. Words cannot describe the love we have for her. She is such a special little girl that fits perfectly into our family and brings us so much joy.
We are so happy that she was home in time to celebrate her first birthday with us and something tells me that she is too! She is having an awful lot of fun being one!
I think cake may have just knocked pasta out of first place as her new favorite food:)
Happy First Birthday Reagan Elizabeth WenYi!
~We love you always and forever~
