No. 66

It has been so long! Here is a Cupcake fix.
She is simply EQUISITE in every way! I love you Cupcake!
It is hard to explain but now she can walk, talk, and share an opinion. Our lives have meshed in such an incredible way! Watching her grow and learn is so special. In some ways it has become more private too. Blogging has been difficult with such a lack of time but I wanted to share a little more. Especially for anyone waiting...I promise FOR REAl you will forget the hardships of the waiting! Every paper chase, every 10+ hour flight, every check & charge will be FORGOTTEN!!!

Looking at the date from the last post is CRAZY! I know a few needed a Cupcake fix so don't give up on me yet. My work has been so time consuming that I can not miss one minute of "Life with Cupcake" so hold your panties because Little Cupcake is just Cupcake.

One year home came and went. Before I knew what happened to me the Baby I held, bottle fed, nurtured, and loved more than I have ever loved in my life grew up. She is my baby but she is just an equisite little girl with the best sense of humor I could ever of imagined.

So for every paper we chase, for every long flight we make, for every check & charge that gets us to another WORLD to find our new world...It is so easy to forget. I have almost forgotten. In a strange way I have not blogged as it keeps in the world of adoption. Even though I am eternally grateful for all I have found in this world I have enjoyed retreating into a private little snuggle spot with my daughter. This is what it is all about!

She is speaking fluently and completely. She has tested a few otnhs advanced where 8 months ago she was a few months behind. We are working on the potty with great progress. Eating time is not so stressful and the crib has become a jungle gym.
