She's 2!!

Birthday Girl!

Sweet Sisters

Sleepy birthday girl. She fell asleep before we left for the skate rink.

My Baby's TWO!!

We had a quiet little birthday celebration at home last night. I don't think Mei Lin completely understands it was her birthday, but she seemed to enjoy her special day. She even got a call from Grace, her foster sister in Germany.

Mei Lin is:

Sweet, fun-loving, outgoing, silly, imaginative, loving, and smart.

Mei Lin likes:

Pretending she's an animal, playing outside, going places, eating, playing with her stuffed animals ( and often tells me, "doggy's not obeying"), helping me cook and clean, dressing herself (kind of), singing and dancing, tagging along with her big sister, and eating candy, and more candy.

Mei Lin has been with us for 9 months now! That means she's been with us longer than she's been anywhere else (7 months orphanage, 7 months foster home). I hope she understands the permanence of her home and family. She definitely seems to feel at home. And she perfectly rounds out our little family.

Happy birthday sweet beauty! Look at how long and shinny her hair is. Look at how soft and clear her skin is. It looked so red and dry when you first got her. What a sweet heart!
