We have had Maggie for two months now and she is doing amazing!!! She has had a couple of visits now with our pediatrician. We were so thankful to find out that she is one healthy little girl! She had her second birthday and had a blast!!! She has been in preschool for over one week and is adjusting so well. All of her teachers have fallen in love with her! She has picked up so many new words and will repeat just about anything. She is a great eater and is sleeping all night. We can't believe how far we have come in such a short amount of time! We waited such a long time for this and we are loving every single minute! I can look back now and say that it was so worth it!!!!

We had a great time at the pool. Maggie is doing so great. She is such a happy little girl. She is now saying pool,bird and potty. We are so excited that she has her Birthday in one week. We have been teaching her to blow out candles. We can't wait to post pictures of her party.

It is hard to find time to blog as much these days. Maggie keeps us pretty busy,as you can imagine. She is doing great and is a very happy little girl. She has got a new riding toy that she loves. She likes to get at top of the driveway and coast all the way down to Mom or Dad. You can see by the picture she likes to show out and put her feet up by the handle bars. The music also has to be playing in order for her to ride it.
Maggie likes to wear shoes especially ours. She still wakes up at least once a night but goes right back to sleep. She will go to the doctor for the first time Monday. I am sure she will love that. Over all this is one great kid and I can't wait for everyone to meet her.

I am amazed at how well Maggie is doing now. I left the house today to go get my hair done and she did great with Kevin. We had dinner at Mammie's house and Maggie had so much fun with Cullen and Carson! The past three days she has really started to open up. She has started to go to Kevin a lot more now. She is much more comfortable around family. Her fun personality is really shining through. We have only been home a week and a half and she has just fit right in. She is such a blessing and has brought so much joy into our lives!

We had a great day. Maggie loved the park. She loved to swing,she was not scared at all. The higher you swung her the harder she would laugh. We thought she was going to ware us out with the slide.
Angie left the house for the first time and of course she cried that Momma left,but I just took her outside and took her mind off of it. It felt great to hold her without crying and pulling away. She did great for her first time without Mom around.
Maggie is a fast learner she says bye-bye and understands stand up and sit down. This is great when she lays in the floor with her tantrums. We just tell her to stand up now and she does.Well most the time . She is very shy around other people can't wait for her to allow people to see her personality because she is so funny and sweet.

We had my Dad's Birthday party today. Maggie did great,she had her moments like all two year old does. She also had her first meal at Cracker Barrel she loved the macaroni and the dumplings. She does not like cold stuff. Milk and juice has to be barely cool for her to want to drink it. I am to assume that they never gave the kids in the orphanage cold stuff to eat or drink. Still not much talking yet but she does whispers words. She did say daddy before she went to bed. This child loves the bathtub. I had bought her some markers for the tub. Never thought we would get her out and to bed.

We have not been getting much sleep the past few days. We have been trying to get her into a routine. She will let me put her in and out of car seat and high chair. Still no real amount of holding other than that. She is slowly letting me in. Cullen and Carson came over to visit today. Maggie had a blast with them. She ran and gave Cullen a hug before he left. So glad to see her progress. We have my Dad's birthday party tomorrow she will get to see her new best friends,Cullen and Carson. I will have new pictures tomorrow.
