Yea!!! She is Officially Ours!

Today we went down to the court and finalized our adoption! Yea!! It has been quite the journey, but everything went smoothly, and we have the signed paper in hand. (Dee made reference to a song from Pete's Dragon afterward, and while I thought it was funny I wouldn't put it as the title of our blog post.)

I think that Mia was the youngest kiddo there, and we are so happy we could finalize so soon rather than wait six or more months. We almost didn't make it this morning. All three of us came down with colds, and fortunately Dee was much better today than yesterday. I took Mia to the doctor after court, and he said likely this cold will have to run its course- so not to worry.

Everyone at court was really nice. People were cooing at Mia and how cute she is. It must be the best court job, everyone is happy for you. Definitely the only reason you should ever have to go to court.

So now we are on the road to becoming our forever family. I just have to call the temple and set up a time to be sealed. (If you don't know what that means, feel free to email us and we can give you more info.)
We are so excited! We can't wait!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yea, Mia's first Valentines Day! Of course we had to get her dressed up for the occasion.

On another note, she is also starting to become a mover. In the picture below, in the matter of less than 30 seconds while I turned around, she moved from on her back under the play gym to the position she is in. Now I really need to vacuum so she doesn't eat any dust bunnies. And Dee will have to pick up his cords and/or any other electrical things he doesn't want slobbered on.

She is also giggly at the smallest things. Yesterday the word "Hi" did it for her. Who knows what it will be tomorrow. She gets a slow start, and I am a dork, but she is super cute.
