In 5 months time....

It's amazing what can change in 5 months. If you've been reading my blog, you know that Grace was a little peanut when we got our referral..... 4.3 lbs. to be exact!! When we brought her home, at almost 4 months, she was a whoppin' 9 lbs!! (that's what my son weighed when he was born!!) Our pediatrician thinks she was quite premature, etc., etc........ She had several upper respiratory infections after we got home, lots of trips to the Dr., etc. But now..... she's one healthy girl!!! No cold in quite some time, doing everything an 8 month old "should" be doing, and is one of the sweetest and happiest babies around! So, yesterday I ventured out with both kids to the swimming pool. Jake and I love to go swimming, but I had been hesitant to take Grace-- didn't want her to get the chills, etc.... I was so overprotective of her in the beginning. But, she LOVED the pool! And, check out the rolls-- I think she has plenty chub to keep her warm! (and to let you know how much we really love swimming.... the first thing I bought for Grace after we received our referral.... the bathing suit she's wearing!!!!)

So, to the mommas that might be a little worried about their dainty little babies waiting to come home (not mentioning any names...... Julie B. :) ).... no need to worry!!!

Where did you buy Grace's doll, the same one that Julie got on her baby shower.

Loving the bathing suit babe, and Big brother Jake so excited to get his sister in the pool, awesome!

Grace looks like a natural swimmer....another obvious reason she was meant to be a part of your fish family.

Love the rolls!!! I so miss those pudgy leg days:)

To answer your question....We travel to WA a lot! We have tons of family in WA and OR and so we make the trip very frequently. It is only about 7 hrs to Seattle from here. I would love to get together!!!

What a beautiful girl God gave you. We are an AGCI family too...though we are currently waiting on the Guatemala girls list.
It did my heart good to see a baby adopted from Ethiopia (as we had been told that there weren't too many babies)
Thank you for sharing...you did my heart good.
