What a difference a year makes!

she lit up the room with her smile- she was nervous, so were we. She took a leap of faith and trusted us. We loved her without hesitation-

One year ago today Princess E.:

could not feed herself

had not had solid food

was a "wobbly" walker

did not speak any language

did not know what to do with a ball

could not swim

could not pick up small objects

had not seen a bike

could not dress herself

did not play with other children

one year later she:

eats with gusto!

eats nearly whatever you put in front of her

runs to get from A to B

Never. stops. talking. ever.

keeps up with her brothers on the soccer field

swims like a fish

laces beads on string

rides a scooter as fast as any other almost 3 year old I know!

dresses herself (many times a day)

had many friends, knows them by name and plays nonstop until they go home!

My baby has come a long way- I am so proud of all that she has accomplished- it was a tough year for her and she has gotten through it with so much grace- she is such a brave little girl- so trusting, so full of love- she has her mama and daddy wrapped around her little finger....her brothers too! I'm excited to see what the next year has in store for all of us- no doubt it will be full of surprises!

Congrats on the 1 year mark. Can you believe the difference a loving home can make? We think of you often.

Oh gosh now I am crying. I love the picture of all three on the edge of the pool. Love X's hair long and shaggy!

What a wonderful transformation for E and I loved how you described it. I am sure it has been amazing to watch a child blossom like that. Life is good.
