Resolutions, Intentions, Plans

Whatever you wanna call it... it's a new year and it's time to stop neglecting my blog. Life gets busy when you're a single working mom of a busy toddler.

But I've always treasured having this space to keep track of memories. I love that I can come here and relive my trip to China, see Mia progress through milestones during our first months home and watch her continue to grow and blossom.

I regret that I've fallen behind here for the last several months. So my plan for the new year is to not only catch up through the end of 2012 but consistently document 2013.

With that being said, I thought it'd be interesting to see just how much my girl has changed. Wow! I can hardly believe the difference one year makes.
Mia was just starting to walk at the end of 2011. And now at the end of 2012, she's a running, jumping, climbing monkey.
Over the next couple of weeks I plan to back date some posts to catch up through Mia's birthday in October all the way through Christmas and the new year. I'm looking forward to all the exciting things waiting in 2013!

It's the same thing at our house. Plus the older the girls get, the crazier life becomes.

Hooray! I've missed your newsy, humorous blog posts and am glad you're coming back. I'll be checking back often.

I look forward to that! I have been following your blog for a long time (pre Mia), both while I waited for my daughter, and now that we're home. I have missed your posts. Totally get it! Even though I try to post more frequently, my posts are also few and far between! Bloggers who are able to post daily amaze me. Where do they find the time? :-) Wishing you all the best in 2013!

You don't know me but I've been following your blog since a friend of mine adopted a precious baby girl from Chinda back in August 2011. I have enjoyed your Mia's journey and look forward to future updates, you and Mia have been missed!
