Five Months

Did you see how she figured out that flippy thing?
I know, she is sooooo brilliant. No state schools for her!

I knew, being married to Ryan, that it was possible to love someone more every day. However, I didn't know it was possible to feel that love growing every day. It took Meg to show me that. It also took Meg to show just how obvious human growth can be from day to day.

Really, every day Meg looks different. Some days she is longer. Some she is wider. Some she just looks wiser. And some days, she is doing something I didn't think she would be able to do for years. She is already sitting up, rolling over, screaming at the top of her lungs, and grabbing for anything she thinks looks interesting. If I didn't find it all so amazing I would be trying to fit her into a shoebox to keep her small.

The best part about this month? One month from today Meg will legally be our daughter. We are already getting the permits for the parade through the streets.

Oh, how we love this girl.

She's so pretty! They grow and change so much every day, you just wish you could be running a tape recorder 24/7 to catch it all. This next month will fly by, and it's so exciting to become an "offical" family. Court day is so incredible.
