I cannot believe that this year we finally have our little blessing! It has been a very emotional week! Izabella has been so cute this week. She just changes every day and every day goes by so quickly. We have had the best Christmas! Words cannot describe how she has changed our lives and how happy she has made us. Hard to believe we have been home with her almost 6 months!! Here are a few pictures from the week. I wil post more tomorrow as well...

Hope! Gosh I have missed YOU!!! I know getting back to work and in the swing of things have been so hard. I hope that calms down for you soon....and you can get back online :).

Hannah is just amazing and things are starting to get into a groove. The holidays through us for a loop with her schedule but after missing Thanksgiving by being in China....I want to be with family and friends.

Happy New Year and may 2009 be twice as kind to you guys!

I swear, she keeps getting cuter and cuter! I love the "first Hershey's Kiss" photo...she's a girl after my own heart...gotta love that chocolate!

Also, that three peas in a pod ornament is adorable.

Happy New Year!
