Scenes from a birthday

That's right, people, we have a 3-year-old! After a whirlwind month, we took a breath and celebrated S's birthday. Grania and Maw came up from Pennsylvania, and we had a nice, low-key party.

Checking out her slice of cake, which she decorated herself

She wanted to ride her bike RIGHT NOW. In 36-degree weather *sigh*

She loved her Pooh books from Grania

Welcome to 3, S!

Three years ago today

...I was in a time-suck meeting and couldn't be reached by our adoption agency. Yet J answered the call on the first ring. In a few minutes we'll celebrate 3 years since we got The Call that S was our daughter. This weekend we celebrated her birthday in style.

More to come...
