The Life of a Ladybug! Two Years in the Making!

 In August of 2010, I took photos of Gabriella in her 3T ladybug costume. 
She was 3 1/2 years and 25 pounds. She had just arrived home from China 27 days before.

Here she is in January 2011 on her birthday... 
making her's and Amaris' ladybugs. 

Today, we took photos again... 2 years later...
Same 3T costume, this time, she is 5 1/2 years old and a whopping, ZERO FAT, 37 pounds. 

And, here is our baby ladybug...
Same costume... her first ladybug photo shoot. 
Size 3T, age 2 1/2, and 25 pounds... same weight as Gabriella, a year younger!

This is just a sample of the crazy photos Amaris gives me... generally in a photo shoot, 97% of her photos will be doing something crazy... she makes the funniest faces... I am sure she will be the class clown.

Here is our littlest princess ladybug at her finest!

Once Upon a Time... via VIDEO!

August 2012 marks our 19th year that we have waited to hold our first 2 Chinese princesses...

 We brought Gabriella home July 2010 and Amaris home the last day of June 2012... both from southern China.

 We have been so blessed through the gift of adoption and look forward to bringing home our next little "gift" from God in 2012/2013.

I created this video as a result of capturing multiple photos during Gabriella and Amaris' very first princess tea in which they were all dressed up. They had so much fun together...
