OMG-----Haven't been able to get on the blog----Couldn't post for Samara's 2nd Birthday

Arghhh so stinking frustrating....everyday I tried to get on and it would not let me post!!

Ok So last Friday the 29th our little Samara turned 2. Unbelievable she is doing so much better saying lots and lots of words and motoring around like a crazy girl.

We still have sensory and behavioral issues but we take those day by day.

Back to her Birthday, we had her Birthday on Saturday and other than mommy and daddy running around crazy getting everything ready it went really well.

She looked absolutely adorable in her tutu dress. She received so many gifts from family and friends and we are so blessed. Also another thing I could not post about and missed was Halloween and her 7 months home. Halloween was very chilly but she did so good. Trying her hardest to say trick or treat to everyone and always saying Thank You! So darn cute!

It's hard to believe it's been 7 months already.

Life is no where near perfect and we have our good days and not so good days.

Hey but who doesn't?

Happy 2nd Birthday sweetie. Mama, Dada and Ethan all love you very much!!! We hope your Birthday was alot of fun and you felt the love from all our family and friends.

Enjoy the pics!!!


  1. Oh my Gosh, Leah & Justin!! What a sweetheart!!! Samara & Katie's birthdays are soooo close that it makes me sad. First, Samara looks like she had a WONDERFUL time & I love the tutu!! Nice touch!!! Well since I'm pretty sure Katie doesn't know what a birthday is at this moment & I'm sure they didn't do anything in Vlad at the baby home to celebrate it, next year will have to be EXTRA SPECIAL!!!!!

  2. Leah,

    I think reading your blog and knowing that someday (hopefully soon) we will be in your shoes and have OUR daughter home has been therapeutic. Thank you for sharing so much Leah...and being there for me these days that I am a complete mess with ALL this WAITING! I hereby vote for there to be a new law so other adoptive parents do not have to leave their children behind that allows ALL this to be completed in ONE trip.
