St. Louis or Bust!!!

Makenzie and I took a road trip last weekend to the Hannah Montana (a Disney show - for those of you who don't live and breathe Hannah) concert. We left at 6am on Thursday morning and drove straight to St. Louis to meet Josie, Rylie, Aunt Ju Ju and some friends at the mall for a LibbyLu makeover before the concert. Josie and Rylie were celebrating their 10 birthdays. We loved celebrating with them. We spent the weekend shopping and sight seeing. We had a lot of laughs and some good girl fun!! We had a great trip!

Sophie is 2!!!

Sophie Mei turned 2 on September 27th. It frequently strikes me how full our hearts are with Sophie in our lives. Of course, we felt very full with Makenzie and Seth all along. It is just an amazing God that can cause our hearts to fall in love with a little girl from China and knit us all together in such a short period of time. Sophie is growing physically, emotionally and especially verbally! She has lots of words and she likes to use them! I told you she is a Neal! She is such a loved little thing. She makes friends where ever she goes. I remember how hard this day was for me last year. I just wanted to hold my baby and she was a world away. But, I can tell you now that every moment of waiting was worth it for this precious girl. She makes us all laugh with her silly little antics. She sure has her sister and brother tied around her little finger too. There are many mornings where there are arguments about who gets to get her out of her bed. They are in love with their little mei mei. Looking forward to another year with our sweet kiddos and maybe even having a picture of our newest Neal by then!
