One Year Ago Today..

One year ago today we were on our way to Guatemala and this sweet baby girl was put in to our arms. It was a very hard emotional day. Sophia was so tramatized and upset. She was more then we expected and could have ever dreamed up. She didn't quickly warm up to either of us immediately, but when she did it was DADDY! She only wanted Daddy to bath her, change her, dress her, hold her and I will admit I was devastated, but Daddy was Elated and I was happy for that. Here is Daddy and Sophia on our 1st day after our 1st bath.
I was able to dress her and then she wanted Daddy, so this picture is Mommy and Sophia on Embassy Day morning. While waiting at the Embassy she wanted Mommy and never looked back. Daddy couldn't even get close to her and she would scream. Daddy of course was devastated. It wasn't until the Houston Airport on the way home that she went back to daddy willingly. And now a days she is totally smitten with her daddy♥

Finally home and our first together as a family picture.
And of course Miss Sophia today. I chose this picture because it shows her true personality. She has the most Magnetic smile. And always has this cheesy smile on her face. She is the light of our lives.
I thank god everyday for this little girl!!
♥I am blessed to be her Mommy♥

Happy one year together forever day!! How much she has changed, yet she still has the same looks.

Adjustments are tough. We were lucky. Reese had a pretty easy time.

Today, she is just beautiful. Hope you do something special today!
