One month ago today, Sadie was put in my arms. We've officially been a family for one month. I can't believe how fast the time has passed. I can still remember the moment I first saw her like it was yesterday. They just handed her to me and finally we were together. I was pretty terrified I was doing everything wrong that first day (and a few days after that) but I'm finally feeling really good about my abilities as a parent. I'm sure I'll feel even better once we work out the kinks with the sleeping issue.
Sadie has grown and changed so much since that first day. Honestly, I think she was in shock for the first 2 days, but after that, she truly started coming out of her shell. Now she is a beautiful, sweet, smart, musical, strong, silly, adventurous, curious girl. I can't believe how lucky I am to be her mom.
