One year ago today......

We became a family. One year ago today we were handed the cutest little baby we had ever seen. We were far away from home and we fumbled through our first couple weeks as parents but eventually things started to click.

Last night as Grace was having trouble falling to sleep. As I rocked her I recounted the story of our "Family Day". After the story I asked her if she was ready for bed. She proceeded to give me a big hug, grab me by both cheeks and planted two little kisses on my lips. Finally a family!!!!

To commemorate our family day Jen put together a little video with highlights from our first year as a family. The pictures are in chronological order so it's really cool to see how Grace has changed over the past year. Enjoy....
