We had some professional pictures taken of Rachel, and they are all so beautiful I can't decide which ones to get! Here is a slideshow of the proofs (I narrowed them down to half). I would really appreciate any feedback as to which you think are the best!

A closet full of cuties

The other night after their baths the kids all decided to have a party in the girls' closet. They took a little reading light in there with them, covered themselves up with blankets, and giggled away.

For Julia's 4th birthday, we had a princess tea party. Our house was filled with little princesses, with her brothers as a prince and a wizard, and Mom and Dad as the king and queen.

18 month update

Rachel is 18 months old, and has now been with us for longer than she was in China. For some reason that was a milestone that I really looked forward to. She continues to light up our lives with her sunny personality, her sense of humour, and her loving nature.

I decided to make a list of all the words that Rachel is saying now. It's not a whole lot, but lately she has started saying more, and putting some words together now, like "there you go", and "more cheese". Here are some of the others, I'm probably forgetting a few.

Mommy, Daddy, boys, Maddie, baby, uh-oh, yes, no, go, all done, bye bye, night night, ball, more, juice, cheese, hello, hi, pretty, fish, shoes, thank you, mine

Here are a couple more pictures from Christmas. In the first one she and her cousin Claire are having fun with frosting!
