Mia's 3 Year Forever Family Day

I cannot believe that three years ago we stood in the hotel conference room in Lanzhou China waiting to meet our little girl. I remember hearing them come off the elevator, and I was already in tears.
To hold my baby and smell her for the first time was AMAZING!!!!! Although she totally adored her daddy and only wanted him while we were in China, it all didn't matter. She was ours and my mama heart was full of love for our princess.
Mia is almost 20 I mean 5!!!!! The princess has requested a Frozen birthday party, and I am sure Miss Mia is bound to perform and sing all Frozen songs. She is very, very girly. Loves clothes, shoes, her nails painted, purses, her Bitty Baby Zoe. She is FULL of BIG Personality and keeps us laughing all the time.
Today she woke up to the whole house cheering Happy Gotcha Day. Her knights brothers were so happy to celebrate her. They adore their little Princess. She was all smiles and happiness. Daddy brought home donuts and a butterfly balloon this morning on his way home from the fire station.
It was a sweet morning celebrating our girl. We Love you more than words can express, and you have forever changed our hearts for the better.
Mia curled up on my lap a few weeks ago and said, "Mama I am so happy." I asked Why and she said, "Because you and daddy came to China to get me." UMM Yeah about ripped my heart out.
So thankful!!!! For the gift of Mia!!!!!!
Happy with her daddy

Love my baby girl!!!!!

The donut feast
