Our Family is growing!

Well, we are just THRILLED to announce the newest member of our family...no, I'm not pregnant. And we have not begun the adoption process again. We received some wonderful presents in the mail today from Annslee (and her mom). They sent a beautiful pink bow with ballet slippers on it AND they sent a stuffed ballerina bear! Lily loves her, has given her a name, and Spot is happy to have a sister. Can't you see him smiling? I am constantly amazed and overwhelmed by the kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity of the people I have met here. Thank you soooo much, girls! You made our day. (and expanded our family)!

XOXO

*Lily also loves the tattoos you sent. She now has a flower on her hand and can't wait to put another one on tomorrow.*

And, if you can believe it: these were not the only presents that Lily got in the mail today. She is getting lots of love from bloggerland! (More to come...)

videoOther conversations that took place today:
Lily (to Spot): Spot, say hi to our new fwiend Bewwa...
Lily (to Bella): Bewwa, do you wike my new earrings?
As she took Bella to her ballerina bar to "teach" her some dance moves I asked if Spot was also a ballerina. She said "NO! He's a boy!" So, I asked if he was a hip hop boy. She thought for a minute, said "Yeah, maybe...Wait, no. Spot doesn't go to dance pwass. He's a stuffed adimal."

Nikki, you brought tears to my eyes..... the ballerina bear is so sweet, and Lily's smile melts my heart.... but knowing your heart... when I first read the title of the post I thought your prayers were answered and you were begining your journey to China....
One day friend....
You are in my heart and my prayers....

Oh my gosh....I am crying here. I LOVE hearing her say Annslee's name (ok, the pressure is on & I will get Miss A on video saying Lily) and Laura is a hard name and she did it beautifully : )

I am soooo glad she loved the bear Annslee picked for her. Did she get Bella from "Bella Dancerella"...looks like she has the ballet bar from that??

Anyway, so happy she loves it and the bow ~ hope you didn't mind getting your girl all tatted up ; ) Annslee LOVES tattoos (yeah, so proud here)

{{{{HUGS}}}} to sweet Lily and someday I want to get a hug from her in person!!

Can I say she is the cutest thing ever. I know you hear me say that often but she has so much spunk and such a love for life.

That little Bella bear is perfect for her. Welcome to the family Bella Bear. Happy Wednesday!

Such a cute ballerina bear and I LOVE the matching pink tutu's!!

Ballerina bear for your little ballerina, I wish I'd thought of it. So Cute! Thats funny how she thinks of spot as a stuffed animal, but not bella. Maybe spot has moved down a notch. Reminds me of toy story.
