I want to remember how adorable this little girl is at 16 months.  Time is going by too quickly and I am finding that it is hard to remember her as a tiny baby.  How she smelled, how she held her hands together like  she was praying,  and if I am not careful before I know it she is going to be all grown up.   Today I want to remember her in all her sweetness.

At 16 months, she says 6 words (papa, mama, baba, this, here, and oh no).  She has 5 teeth of which two are on top and three on the bottom.  She loves to sit and look at books, but she is very busy and loves to pull everything out of the cupboards.  She is not a fan of food except for chocolate.  I can't blame her on the last one, and she loves to dance to music!  She is pretty loud and makes sure everyone recognizes her when we are out and about.  She is so cute when she puts the telephone to her ear and in baby gibberish starts talking.  She gives kisses and waves bye bye. She lights up when she sees her brothers and they usually can get her to smile.

I want to remember how my 5 year old Roman said today, "Mom, I love it when your pick me up from the bus stop.  I don't like walking home alone.  It makes me sad."  He never walks home alone.  Usually his brother Winston walks him home, so maybe he meant he likes it better when I walk him home.

I love how hard my oldest son is working on fixing his robot for this Saturdays competition.

I want to remember that my 10 year old is giving over 1/2 his candy to the troops.

Do you remember a couple of post ago when I told you we will be going to China sometime in the next year?

Well the reason we are going to China is because we are ADOPTING!!!!!!  You read right!  We are adopting.  I will tell you more on that later though because right now I have to go fix dinner for my kiddos before we head off to Scouts.  Hope you had a great day today!


I am SO excited to be reading your blog but most of all that you all are going to China for your sweet one!!! To God be the glory!!! Blessings and love!!!

Congratulations Kelleyn. This is so wonderful, really, we are praying and rooting for. My sister and brother in law have a daughter from Vietnam.

These pictures are adorable and I love chair she is sitting in and the shirt she is wearing with the roses around the neck, precious.

Can't wait to hear more about the adoption. And thank you for your sweet words on my blog, I really enjoy our friendship over this new fangled technology....wink ;).

Gorgeous photos! And wow! Congratulations!!! How wonderful!
