Happy 8 Months Sweet Girl

Not much less than 8 months ago, I looked at a tiny little sleeping face on my computer screen and feel in love. All those months ago, we had every reason to believe that we would all be home together to celebrate Luciana's 8 month birthday. It is so amazing to me to be here with her today. Keith will be with us for 9 months, and every other little celebration after that! But, for today, this was a special milestone. For the first time I am not waiting for a monthly medical update with a green wall pic to see our sweet girl. Here she is, green dress in honor of the green wall!

This pic was taken at the cemetary near our apartment. Sam, Lucy and I walked all around there today. It was beautiful, and very, very peaceful. We took a snack and enjoyed the calm and beauty.

More later! Oh, and we are feeling fine today. :)

What a wonderful day to celebrate! I'm so glad you were able to experience this "first" monthly birthday in Guat with her. She is as beautiful as ever and I L-O-V-E the dress (too cute and makes me have girl fever even more!).

Words cannot be had for just how perfect she is. I guess you did green for her 8month b-day. You better have that pink outfit ready for the next big day.
Hugs and kisses, Terri O

What a special day! And what a gorgeous daughter! She certainly makes a statement to the world. She certainly isn't going to lack beautiful girlie clothing. After all those years of drueling over pink and frills. I certainly like this green wall picture update a whole lot more. Can't wait to wake up tomorrow morning to see the newest photos and read all about your adventure. XXX Tamar (Nighty night Sam and Lucy) sleep tight!
