Here is our 2009 X-mas card. Wasn't sure if I would be able to get this out this year. I did not last year...sorry! But they were ordered tonight so here is a spoiler for all of those who actually check my blog.

So I thought I would pull out the old baby book that documented her growth over the years and see how far she has come!

11/08/2003 Birth- 7lbs. 3oz 18 3/4 in.
11/17/2003 11 days old- 6lbs. 6 oz. 18 3/4 in.
11/24/2003 2 weeks old- 6lbs. 7oz. 18 3/4 in.
12/12/2003 1 month- 7 lbs. 13 oz 20 in.
01/13/2004 2 months- 10 lbs. 0 oz. 21 in.
03/17/2004 4 months- 12 lbs. 4 oz. 23 in. (height 12% weight 25% Head Cir 20 %)
05/17/2004 6 months- 14 lbs. 9 oz. 25 in.
08/19/2004 9 months- 17 lbs. 8 oz. 26 1/2 in.
11/29/2004 1 year- 19 lbs. 3 oz. 27 1/2 in.
02/10/2005 15 months- 20 lbs. 3 oz. 28 1/2 in.
05/04/2005 18 months- 20 lbs. 12 oz. 29 in.
11/09/2005 2 years- 23 lbs. 14 oz. 30 1/2 in.

And now at 6 she weighs in at 42lbs and 41 inches tall.
My how she has grown!

FINALLY got my domain name back after a year hiatus! I was paying an arm and a leg through Yahoo but once they released the name I bought it through google! So now you can go just type in Megansgot47.com to get here! I hope to get back into blogging soon. Been really busy with no time to update. Not much going on here either and having a hard time coming up with things to talk about.

I cannot believe you are 6. It seems like such a big number for such a little girl.
You started Kindergarten this year and your 3rd year of dance.
You amaze me everyday and your spunk will get you through life with flying colors.
Everyone you meet, everyone whom you talk to, loves you forever.
You are contagious...in a good way.
You are so special that you had no issues what so ever letting everyone help you open your presents, who does that? All kids I see are very territorial but you...you smiled and invited all to join in the fun. I wish everyone had a soul like yours, the world would be a better place.
Happy Birthday my beautiful girl....you make my life enormously better!

Thought I would share our Halloween pictures with you. Megan was sick in the pictures and we had a low key Halloween but at least we were all together. We put the camera on the tripod and got a family shot which is rare. Enjoy!

Is it contagious or what? LOL

I really tried NOT to look at Recee's Rainbow (I know that sounds terrible).
For me it was easier to ignore it cause when I paid attention I cried.
The more my friends started adopting the more I questioned in my head "why"...."how can they afford this"..."isn't it too stressful on their families"...so I started looking at the site wondering....reading blogs, looking at pictures.
I stared at faces wondering how each of my friends happened upon their chosen one. What drew them to a particular child? Did they decide on a child or a country, did they look domestically first? This all just seems like so much work.

I can not explain for me what changed in my head or what makes me go back to the same picture everyday wondering what this orphaned child is doing. If she is loved, kissed, played with, fed good food...if she is warm at night, if she longs for a family or if she is happy and content where she is (not knowing the looming fate that is ahead if she doesn't get adopted). So for now, we have pictures in all our rooms, we are praying hard, we are soul searching and working on things at home that need to be taken care of, I am working EXTRA hard on making my husband get to the same place I am....so for now we are just going to start raising money and getting people to pay attention. We can do that! I am hoping in the mean time God speaks to us and tells us his plan (cause sometimes I truly think that is what my husband is waiting for).
I know my thoughts are all over the place but I really wanted to get them out there, I wanted others to know it is on our hearts and minds too all of the time.
This will probably be shocking to some considering I haven't really said all this out loud to anyone yet, not even family.

Olivia asks me everyday, "Are we going on the airplane today to get my sister"....I know she already loves her! We have talked a lot about all the children who need a home and I know she would bring them all home if she could!
