And Chloe takes the lead!!!!

Just for fun here's a chart on the heights of C&C. I'm just so shocked because for so long Chloe was pretty short compared to Cassie. At this rate they will both be taller than me!!! How can that be?!?!?! So not fair.

730 days!!!!

That's how long I've been Chloe's mommy. Or 2 whole years today if you are trying to do the math in your head. It's crazy that this amazing, way over curious little angel baby has been with us for 2 years. Seems like yesterday that we were sitting in the Civil Affairs office in Nanjing waiting for Chloe and her nanny to arrive. I still remember thinking that these people can't be crazy enough to give us another sweet little baby girl -- or can they. Well they did just that. That day makes the top 5 on my list of the best days of my life. That day -- February 1st, 2010 -- made our little family complete. Chloe is/was the perfect addition to all three of our lives. God's plan is always right and he did a perfect job in matching us up with the perfect daughters.

Chloe is still the most gentle, kind, forgiving, always happy, sometimes-defiant, loving, little girl. And she loves to be gross and give me puppy kisses -- that makes her giggle the most. Basically she will lick my lips at the last minutes to be funny -- however, I think it's gross. And that makes her do it that much more. And I love her for it -- in a strange sort of way.

In the past week or two Chloe is showing all her teachers (art, gymnastics, & dance) that she can talk non-stop and be completely silly with her little stories. We get to see that all the time with her but now she has decided to show the world her funny side.

Chloe had also really grown. She's now 38 7/8 inches tall. And actually taller now at 43 months than Cassie was at 43 months. Right now Cassie is still 1/4 inch taller -- but I'm thinking this summer Chloe just might take the lead in height. And the crazy thing is her legs are getting so long. I guess I just assumed her body would grow all together. But I guess not. Chloe is also about 33 lbs right now -- just like her sister.

With our past Disney trip and us planning another one the girls are really into princesses so here's Chloe posing with her new Belle nightgown on from last night.

Merry Christmas!!!!

God bless everyone tonight and every night.
Merry Christmas from all of us to all of you!

Luke 2:15-16

When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the LORD has made known to us." And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Baby lying in a manger.

Second trip to see Santa

Chloe could not be convinced this time to see Santa.

First trip to see Santa

Princess 1 & Princess 2

We had pictures done of the girls at the end of October -- normally that would be very cold here in Michigan. However, it was about 68 degrees this day. We were lucky as we have an appointment at 10am. The night before I had to quickly plan out new outfits for the weather. In the end they smiled and that's all that matters.
