it's easy to forget that your baby is growing up. and it's especially difficult to gauge height with a child who can't stand, so i think i often miss E's changes or take them for granted. but these 2 photos were taken a year apart almost to the day (the left from Novemeber 2009, the right from this November). it really is amazing to look at how much she's changed and grown. her face has lost her toddler softness and taken on its striking angles. her arms have grown strong and muscular, and she's sporting an adorable buddha belly that she didn't come home with. i guess what is even more spectacular is how much she has thrived in this new environment- how she's embraced what has been given to her without losing sight of where she came from. i hope we can always keep that alive in her. i suspect it won't take much work, as she speaks so fondly of those she loved in China to this day. how much i look forward to the time we can return to the country of her birth.
