approaching one year since welcoming her into this world

One year ago we were being prepped by Julia's birthmother to expect her to make it to her induction date of the 27th. She was overdue by a few days at this point in time and didn't feel much going on. I'll have to go back one year and read my posts from then.

We are working on hosting a party at my sisters house for Julia's party Saturday on Julia's Birthday to celebrate. We invited (mostly family) 63 people and only asked for regrets. Guess what. NO REGRETS given.

BIGGEST NEWS, Julia's birthmother called us to make sure we knew she wanted to come to Julia's party(we sent an invite to her directly). I was so happy to hear from her and in the short few minutes we got to chat, she sounded so upbeat and very very busy with school and work. I can't wait to see Julia's birth siblings.

I asked DH to prep a letter to H for the last 4 months since we had last written a letter and given pictures to her at our last meet up. So much has happened in the last 4 months that I am excited to share these milestones with her. I hope DH doesn't get mad if I inject some of those milestones if he doesn't mention them. Like when she got her first two teeth, when she said Dada and when she said HOT after I was teaching her that the stove is HOT HOT HOT. hehe

Lets see, we got a full refund for the pictures we had taken at Sears. The lady could not believe we ended buying these and they looked so bad (we had not realized they looked that bad (snot nose and scratch on face) until Dh picked them up. The lady offered us a free sitting and discount on the next group we take. I think we will take her back in thise same outfit to mark the 1 year date of her Beautiful life.

Happy Birthday to your little one! Time flies doesn't it? She is so cute! Using the same outfit maybe a good idea if it still fits here! :)
