Happy 3rd Gotcha Day!!!

I'm not sure what's up with Amelia's silly grin here, but she was insistent that her new silver shoes be pictured, and this was the only shot to show off her new shoes. :)

Three years ago today, we flew home from Korea with our little little princess. Our world was turned upside down for quite a while as we adjusted to being a family of four, got to know Amelia, and very slowly earned Amelia's trust. Now, when I look back, those challenging days are nothing more than a distant memory. Amelia is one resilient little girl and I am so incredibly lucky to be able to call her my daughter. She's incredibly kind and compassionate and not to mention, she's one of the best shopping partners out there (seriously, she is!) and her love for shoes rivals my own obsession. At three years home, here are some of Amelia's favorites: anything related to ponies, baby dolls, anything princess, any type of art project, books, books, and more books, Graham, napping, meat (no joke-she would live off of protein if we let her), shoes, dresses/skirts rather than pants, hair bows, and nail polish. As you can probably gather from this list, Amelia is about as girly as they come and I'm loving every single minute of it.

We love you forever, and ever, and ever Amelia and are so incredibly thankful and lucky to have you as our daughter! Thank you for being you!!

And because Graham likes reminding Amelia that her 'Gotcha Day' means that his baby sister came home from Korea, I figured I would include a picture of the two of them together.
