Emma Has Been Home Over Two Years!

GOTCHA DAY ANNIVERSARY #2! :)

On Tuesday February 26th we celebrated our two year Gotcha Day with Emma. (Yeah, I know that I am behind on posts...again....). I can't believe that it has been two years already that Emma was placed in our arms, it seems like she has always been our little girl.

Greg and I enjoyed reminiscing about our time in China (we can laugh about certain things now!! ;P) and I think that on a certain level Emma is starting to understand the very special way that we became a family. We did not watch our video this year, but we looked at pictures and told Emma all about the day that we met her for the very first time. In the morning we gave Emma a special gift that her Daddy bought for her in China-a small (& LOUD) monkey drum. She loved it. We had Chinese food from our favorite local Chinese restaurant for dinner that evening.

Below I posted a few pictures from China to show everybody how much Emma has grown! I wanted to include a picture of her on Gotcha Day this year, but I can't find it. (Dang new computer!!!).

We saw Emma's face for the 1st time on January 4th, 2006....FINALLY!!!!

Greg and I look obliviously happy~Emma was not sure of us just yet! ; )
Around day 5 Emma began to smile at us. : )
Of course she insisted on staying in her crib!
