Happy 3rd Birthday, Princess

Today is Joleigh's 3rd birthday. We celebrated it on Saturday at Pizza Kastle with family and friends. I can't believe that she is already 3. Where does the time go? She is so full of energy and loves life and her family. She is sassy, smart and silly! She loves to dance and "do flips" Her favorite things now are High School Musical and Ballerinas.
As we celebrate this day, I can't help to think about her birth family in China that may be having a very hard day today, wondering how their little girl is doing. Wondering if she is okay? Wouldn't they be so proud at how our angel is doing? Loving life, loving learning, loving everything. Thanks to their sacrificial love and placing that little girl at the gates of Yulin 1st SWI 3 years ago, where they knew she would be found, has allowed me to be her "mommy" and her to have a forever family. I am so honored and proud to be just that. Now, on with our day.
We had a full day today starting with taking Jacob to school, then picking up Ms. Angie to go to town with us. We then went to Kohl's and Target, then to the Doctor for her 3 year old check up. The doctor said she is doing great. Finally in the 50%for her weight and heighth. She weighed 30 lbs and is 37.5 inches tall. She is growing so fast. She received her flu shot and they checked her blood and overall, she did great! After we left the Doctor's office, we went to Cracker Barrel, where Joleigh filled up on "dumpins, carrots and geen beans" and of course, sweet tea. Gotta go now as we are headed to church, another one of her favorite places to go.

Happy, happy birthday sweet Joleigh!...wow it's amazing how quickly they grow isn't it. May you enjoy many, many more milestones as a family and yes - I can so relate to the feelings of gratitude and empathy for the mother and indeed the family that is missing out on their sweet girl.

Happy 3rd Birthday! It's just amazing that our girls are 3! I had to laugh when I read the Dr. Report. Olivia is the exact same height and weight as joeigh. It blows my mind how fast they grow.
