One year ago today…

I saw Feng Jiang Yan’s face for the first time. Our little Tiger, Abby. I can’t even describe the joy we felt upon first seeing her picture. All those years and years of waiting melted away, and we knew without a doubt that she was meant to be our little girl.

Fast forward to today… we love this child with every cell in our body. She is the light of our lives and continues to amaze us each and every day. At 19 months old she is into everything. All hands and feet and go go go! She is really starting to use words more and more. I can ask her her name and she will say Abby. Then I can ask her what’s my name and she will say mama. She knows the dogs name is Maggie and has recently started calling Derek Daddy instead of always dada.

She is stringing together her words now to form short sentences. Bye bye dada. Up peas. (please). no, no, no maggie. (when maggie is trying to steal her food). She loves to be outside and can say grass, trees, flowers, bee, bird, doggy.

She loves animals (elmos as she calls them) and can oink, moo, and bah with the best of them.

Our little girl is rapidly leaving her babyness and is fast becoming a toddler. Oh. My. Goodness. In some ways I am ready for her to be able to talk more and communicate and understand more. But I will morn the loss of my sweet little snuggly baby.

Here are some recent pictures, these were taken at her first Clemson Football game on 9-4, so they are about 1.5 months old…IMG_1259 IMG_1261 IMG_1255

I saw your post on RQ about sizing and wanted to reply but I do not post on there. I was having total Dejavu (sp?). LAst year at this time we were waiting to travel for our daughter who turned 3 on march 7th (she is exactly a year older that you daughter) and was exactly the same size at that time. Then I came here and saw you are a clemson fan... so is my husband, lol.

Anywho, forget about pants. and if she is potty trained undies will be real fun to find too. Our daughter was almost 24 lbs when we picked her up in June and her waist is 18 month size at best but her legs are a 2t length. I figured out real quickly why she was wearing dresses in so many pictures we got while waiting. Even now she is up to 26 lbs and 36 inches tall and only when she has had a real big meal (which is rare for her) can she keep her 2t pants up and the 18 mo pants are capris. So when it comes to pants we have to get the ones with the adjustable waist and take them all the way in. We got some tiny panties in China and I wish we had bought more. The only place we found really little ones here were at JcPenneys.

Women's every belonging when they go outside are in their handbags. If they lose it, they lose everything they brought. Now, companies offer handbag insurance to cover for that so it would be a smart investment to apply for one.
