This may sound silly, but as I sat down to type up this post, I was completely overcome with emotion.
I realized that this sweet little one pictured above became a part of our lives exactly one month ago TODAY!
Just one month ago, Shane and I were ushered into a dark, hot room in Xi'an China, and handed this incredible gift! Thirty-one days ago TODAY our lives were completely changed by this tiny bundle.
All I know to say is THANK YOU PRECIOUS JESUS for this amazing blessing!! She is BEAUTIFUL, SWEET as pie, and the PERFECT addition to our family!
We are incredibly grateful and overwhelmed by the Lord's goodness towards us!
Adoption is the most AMAZING thing EVER and we are SO thankful that the Lord chose it to be a part of His plan for our family!!!!!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU JESUS!!!!
Friday morning, I took AK to her very first doctor appointment After a thorough examination, our pediatrician looked up at me and exclaimed that she was...PERFECT!!
(WE already had figured THAT out though;)
But as far as her health was concerned, she was...ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!
Poor baby girl still had to have some blood work done and several shots were given, but (bless her heart) she was a real trooper! We meet with an ENT specialist in a few weeks to talk about the Microtia of AK's right ear, but our pediatrician believes it is a "non-issue", and that the treatment plan will be simple. I'm praying that she's right;)
We are beyond thankful to the Lord for this healthy (and darling) baby girl!!
Friday night, we headed over to the YMCA for their "Family, Fitness, & Fun Night"
Our family definitely LOVES a good game night,
and a chance for some friendly competition is always a welcomed treat!
Running relays, playing dodge ball, finding treasure, and the hula-hooping hop
were just a few of the games we participated in.
I must add that our family ROCKED it out in this "ball and hoop" game;)
We were declared the UNDEFEATED champs of the Y--HA!
And after our fun evening at the Y came to an end,
we headed over to the "Dunkin" to cool off and enjoy a yummy treat.
