The Party DRESS!

This is Faith the morning of her party trying to show us three on her fingers...it's harder than it looks!

Happy 3rd Birthday Faith!

For Faith's birthday photos I decided to go on a little photo shoot down at our local park. It was a spur of the moment decision because the sun was out...which is a rare sighting this year. I just love how they turned out. Isn't she beautiful!!!!

Her birthday and her 6 month Gotcha anniversary are only a few days apart. It is hard to believe she has only been with our family 6 months...it seems like we have always had each other. Faith has made remarkable progress since that day in January. I would say she is completely bonded with our family...at night she sleeps in the middle of Jeff and I and will put out her little arms and grab our heads in them and say, " SiSi's mama and SiSi's baba"...translated to " My mommy and My daddy". Her favorite color is green. She loves chocolate and sweetish fish. She loves the movie Nemo. She loves shopping, and new outfits. We could sit and cuddle for hours, and we do. She loves it when we wrap her in a blanket and will say she is a baby and then she will say ,"Hold you" when she wants us to hold her. We of course can't resist. I would say the biggest surprise is our 15 year old son Jensen...he is absolutely smitten with her, and when mom or dad tell her no...she will find Jensen and he always caves...thus the chocolate fetish. It has been a joy to watch this sweet little spirit learn, adjust and finally flourish right before our eyes, also a joy to watch our other children love, protect and nurture her. What a blessing! The next chapter will be our entire family together for the first time on July 21st. That is when our oldest son returns home from his 2 year church mission...I can hardly wait! We love you Faith and are so happy you are part of our family! More pictures of her party today to come!
