The two pictures below are pictures we took right after we met her for her Chinese passport and the official "family picture."
The pictures below were taken that first night together. Derek had to catch a plane and head home just 2 hours after he met Presley. I put her in her crib and she played for at least 2 hours before she fell asleep! She had so much fun and she wasn't really sure what to do with a doll! She kept picking it up and dropping it. I think she was trying to figure out if it was alive or not!!
Here she is wearing the clothes we got her in 1 year ago. They actually almost fit, but are just a little too short. What is amazing is how much her foot has grown!! She LOVES shoes and was very upset that she couldn't get the "new" shoes on her feet!!
Presley has fit into our lives almost seamlessly. Our journey to Presley was a lot more emotional than we had planned. But looking back we wouldn't have changed anything! We are so grateful for our experience with Lexi. We are so happy that Lexi is getting the care she needs and we will be forever grateful to her for what she has taught us and how much our hearts have stretched and grown by knowing her.
Presley brings joy to our lives everday. In this past years she has learned to crawl, walk, run, jump, and talk!! Wow!! She has come so far! We love you so much Presley!!!!!
