One Year with Charlie.


So special beyond words.

We celebrated Gotcha Day--our one year anniversary with Charlie in our family.

Seems like the blink of an eye.

To say he's "blossomed" is an understatement. He is doing fantastic. We love this little guy so much. The three of us must've kissed him a thousand times yesterday.

We spent the day as a family, just hanging out and spending quality time together (except Daddy who had to work).

I pulled down an old kiddie pool from the attic. It belonged to Madi as a baby, and the kids had a BALL for a solid hour.


Charlie adores his Jie Jie (big sister), and you can see why. He observes her every move and quickly imitates whatever she is doing or saying. We are thankful that she is so good to him.

We were joined by the Grandparents for dinner and celebrated with a pizza party. Grandpa and Miss Suzanne brought Charlie his own little cake, which he dug into (literally). He also got to do one of his favorite things...blow out the candles!


Happy Gotcha Day, Charles Stanley Chuan-Qi-Qi!  We thank the Lord for bringing you into our family!!
