One Year Anniversary

Gwen_gotcha

One year ago, a very frightened 14 month old little girl was carried into a hot room full packed full of excited onlookers and thrust into the waiting arms of her new parents.   This was her "Gotcha" day (the day we "got" her).

She was less than thrilled at the time but we're pretty sure she's happy with the arrangement now.

Here we are one year later.  Mommy is wearing the same clothes as last year and might continue this as a tradition.

Gwen has gained 6 inches of hair and 8 pounds.  (So has mommy)

She loves Daddy but she's very much "Mommy's Girl".

She's a bright, sunny child with a big beautiful smile and eyes that twinkle but if you've been reading this blog for any time at all, you already knew that!

It's been a wonderful year!  We love you Gwenny!

Last night, we took our 2nd cruise on the Pearl River.  You can read about last year's cruise <here>.

Last year, Gwen loved running around the top level of the ship as we cruised on the smooth water past the Vegas-like scenery.  She was so cute!  It was very memorable so we wanted to be sure to include it on this trip as well.

Here's Gwenny this year -- with her new little sister, Maddy!.  You'll notice that a young lady can strike a much more mature pose at age 2 than age 1!
