Today was Little M's first official Halloween. We spent it at home. We handed out some candy, and she was dressed in her Bengals jersey. :) I didn't put the ladybug outfit back on her. She was tired and a little cranky from big day she had yesterday.
She had cheese and toast, a bottle and some milk out of a cup for dinner. She wore her "My first Halloween" bib that Aiyee Mimi gave her! :) The milk she had was pretty minimal, but she drank it from a cup with no lid. I held it, of course, but I made it kind of a part of dinner for the first time (officially). She kept laughing at me. That's pretty normal! haha.
Today is also my LID from 2 years ago. I had an 18 month wait. I'm thankful I didn't have to wait 24 months, and that she's been with me since June. For those of you who are still waiting, please don't give up. I am SO thankful I waited and Lil' M is just a blessing. I can't believe it was 2 years ago today that China accepted my application and I was officially logged in... and what's more amazing is that we're family now. Really. I get cranky sometimes, and days like today make it ALL worth it.
She is amazing. Really.
