Today was the official day of our one year anniversary of Lj Family day. We welcomed her into our arms and family with big hearts that have only continued to grow day by day.
Geoff called me today to wish me Happy Lj Day. How sweet is that??!! I thought about Lexi all day. I know we just celebrated her birthday last month but today was like another birthday! I guess it really was… the birth of our new family! This day will forever hold significance in our family. I had an easy day at work because it was my usual “easy” day and we only had students for half the day because of Parent-Teacher conference afternoon. I had plenty of time to think back on last year. I even sat down with Lexi this afternoon and looked at pictures and video. Some things really have changed and I must point them out.
Take a look at Lexi last year…
compared to this year….
We decided to make a tradition of eating pizza each year on family day so we ordered pizza tonight. This year we actually ate it (as so did Lexi)!
After dinner, it was nearing bedtime so Geoff took Lexi to change into her pj’s. I headed to our closet and found the baggie with the clothes she was wearing on Family day and extra diaper they gave me for her. I headed into the bedroom and took the clothes she was wearing. It’s amazing to see the difference in what she was wearing a year ago to now. The pants were 0-3 months while her shirts were 6 months. The little footy’s were for a newborn. This compared to her 18 month outfit today complete with size 5 boots.
It’s incredible to compare last year to this year. We’ve had a great year and just know next year will be EVEN better!
