St Patrick's Day Parade

There was a parade in our town the afternoon of St Patrick's Day. We already had a full day of shopping at the Outlets, a nap in the car (a BRIEF nap), a trip to Dairy Queen and a some time running around a new park we found....this was the final icing on the cake for a FUN Saturday as a family.

We met up with Wendy, Leland, Laura and Abby. The kids had a great time together. I didn't have my camera, so these are all shots that Wendy got. At one point, Abby and Tatum were holding hands, and I hope Laura captured that! :)

 The kids got lolipops from people in the parade and were SO happy!!

 This lolipop was definately bigger than her little mouth!!

True Love.....could they be any cuter together?!

Today marks 6 months as a family of 3. I can't believe that we were in China 6 months ago. I miss China, but I love being home with my family. Tatum has grown tremendously! Not only in size, but in how comfortable she is at home, her food intake and what foods she likes, her speech, is amazing what love can do. This is a wonderful journey to share with Todd too. Being a parent is challenging, especially being a new parent to a toddler that we know almost nothing about. She has grown to love us and has let us into her shell. That has been wonderful to watch and withness. It has also been wonderful to see a man that I have known for 15 years fall head over heals in love with his daughter....there is nothing like the love they share for one another. It melts my heart to see how wonderful he is with her and how much she loves her 'Dada'!!

Happy 6 months baby girl. You have brought so much joy to our lives, we love you so much!!
