Happy Adoption Day, Madeleine!

One year ago today there was this...

a little bit of this...


and a lot of this.
One year later there is still a bit of this...

a bit of that...
and lots of love to go around.
Happy adoption day Madeleine! We love you so much and can't believe that little 4 1/2 month old baby we met in Ethiopia is now a toddling around 16 month old!
You can stop growing up now, okay?
P.S. Your special one year adoption day video is on its way - it just got waylaid with technical difficulties. Soon dear one, soon.

What sweet pictures (as always)!

I remember following your blog when y'all were in the process--it seemed you were soooo far ahead of us--I hung onto every word and detail you posted in the blog. Hard to believe a year's gone by since you traveled and now we're home with our baby girl, too!

Happy Adoption Day, Madeline!
