Our Little Girl is 5!

It's hard to believe this sweet little girl has only been with us for 3 months. She is such a huge part of our family and acts as though she's always been here. Her English is wonderful. She understands almost everything we say and is putting together sentences on her own. She also LOVES to sing and can be found singing her ABC's or Twinkle, Twinkle or various other "kid" tunes throughout the day. She absolutely LOVES preschool and can't wait to get there.

Our biggest event to date was her 5th Birthday on September 10th! She was SOOOOO excited for weeks leading up to it and hopefully we did not disappoint. We had a true DORA birthday party for her. She was bouncing off the walls and was more wound up than I've ever seen her. Pure Joy coming from this child! She could hardly contain herself.

We had a beautiful day for the party and she was surrounded by family that loves her tons. Of course, she was spoiled with lots of presents but the reward was a "thank you" and hug from Josie. She was very polite and willing. She is a very special little "peanut" and we LOVE her more than we ever thought possible. Happy Birthday!
