It's been one month since our Gotcha Day (August 10, 2009). And that strange thing happens. It seems like yesterday yet......like we've all been together forever!
Just before we left for a birthday party on Sunday, I set up the tripod in the living room, lined up Daddy and Dahlia, grabbed Milana, pressed the button and ran. I bought a new portrait lens just before we left for China but didn't have it handy so I'm using the wrong lens (may account for a bit of fuzziness) but here it is. Our family picture (which I'll likely replace the above Family of Three picture with 'cause Dahlia's cast will be on her arm for the next 6 weeks!?!) Lucky I got this one just hours before her arm was broken. And everyone's eyes are open. Puh, double lucky.
So, one month! Whew. I was hoping to wax eloquent (or rather wax anything) but I'm still catching my breath here. What with Milana (read cling-on) still finding her feet and touching EVERYTHING, home-schooling Dahlia for the next 2 weeks and dealing with everything a broken arm entails, including sharing Mommy with the aforementioned "cling-0n" and trying (I'm using that term very loosely) to finish up a commissioned double portrait for a dead-line in 2 weeks but am kicking myself for not finishing it before this whirlwind began.......
But I digress. It is, afterall, our anniversary. One month since this sweet little child became ours.
And that is a whole lot to celebrate!
