My little Big Girl

So, Miss Iz has decided she likes to "talk" on the phone to Nana. Okay so Nana does all the talking and Iz just walks around with the phone on her ear. It is too funny!! And, she decided that she enjoys using mommies sweeper on the kitchen floor. Mommy says, "you go girl!!" She will go all over the floor with it until the battery dies. She is such a ham. She is also growing so fast that I just cannot believe it!! She IS my sweet Princess Petunia!! I love you!!

Bite Bite

Well this has been a week of bug bites. First it was her nose and now it is her eye!! She really reacts badly to mosquito's. I spray her with bug spray and it doesn't seem to help. Anyone have any advice on how to ward them off?? We have a pool and I don't know if that is part of the problem or not! My sweet girl has been so good even though she has these bites!!

Miss Iz decided that eating with her spoon did not shovel it in fast enough so we moved on to using our hands!! She has grown so much over the past year. We got home on July 9th last year and it has been one year since we have been home. Time goes by way to fast! I think we love her more and more each day! She is our jewel!

I cannot believe that one year ago tonight we were going to bed and getting ready to leave the next morning on our long journey to China to get our sweet little Izabella! I just keep thinking about how I felt. I can remember it like it was yesterday. I was excited, nervous, scared, happy, sad, every range of emotions that you could imagine! Wow, what a difference a year makes. Now I am worried about getting my deck stained before we really start swimming for the Summer. I can't believe I am a mama and I cannot believe that I have the cutest, sweetest, funniest, most pleasant child that I could have ever imagined. Thank you God for this wonderful little blessing in our lives!

On the Way home from the airport..

Look at me now...

2008 Referral Day - One Year Ago!

I couldn't decide which day to post this since it happened on a Friday but was Actually May 2 so I am up really early and decided today would work. Not only is it 2009 Kentucky Derby's Running of the Roses but I cannot believe that one year ago we receive our referral of our precious Izabella.

I cannot believe how our lives have changed and how how happy we are. My sweet girl, I hope blogs last forever and you get to read this, we could not be happier that we waited 3 years for you. Had it not been that long you would not have been here and our daughter. We love you so much and are so happy you are finally home with us and cannot believe that a year has gone. We love you our Princess Petunia!!
