One Year Ago Today

On this day twelve months ago our lives changed forever. We went from a family of four to five, as our precious Alice Xiao Ying was placed in my arms. It seems so very surreal now, and such a long time ago, so I have posted our handover video as a reminder of how things were on that very special day. Alice has grown and changed so much in the past year. She has gone from a tiny, skinny, introverted and solemn baby to a chubby, bouncy, outgoing, chatty and completely amazing toddler. So happy Forever Day Alice - we love you more than words can say.

I've got tears streaming down my face - wow what a long way you've come. It makes such a difference to see 'the moment' of someone you know. Congratulations on this beautiful day - a day you'll celebrate forever. I remembered yesterday and this morning ('cause it's my hubby's birthday today). Oh Cristina - Alice is so beautiful and so blessed - as you all are as a family to have each other. Enjoy your walk down memory lane. love always, Jen xxx

Never a sweeter moment than when parents first meet their baby.

Beautiful.
