Happy 1st Birthday Myliah!!!!

We celebrated Myli's birthday with family and friends this weekend! (Her Birthday was actually July 6th) Of course she only took about a 20 minute nap before the party so I was expecting her to be pretty grouchy! She surprised me and once again was the perfect little angel we have all come to love so much! It was a great party and she had a blast running around and playing! Myli did very well with her cake until we lit her candle and she tried to put it out with her fingers! She didn't get burnt but was highly upset that I pulled the cake away from her! As with all of our children that have been with us for their first birthday, we got Myli her own little cake and let her go at it. She wasn't sure what to do with it at first until Taylor shoved her hand in it and then.....it was all good from there! She ate and ate and was terribly upset when I took it from her when we thought she had eaten enough! She did not agree! We were afraid that she would be awake for the next 24 hours straight but she did very well at bedtime and slept all night! I guess she was experiencing the crash after the sugar rush!
Here are some pics from the party...enjoy!

Looks like all is going well. I sent a couple over to your blog. They are thinking of adopting an older child from Taiwan after their ET adoption is complete. It's the Baer family.

Randy leaves to pick up our little boy in August. This will be it for us. (famous last words)

Love all the happy pictures!

Happy Birthday Myliah.
I had no idea she was so close to Jordan. Jo was born on July 8th. Wow.
I have not done a party for her yet. I know I am late at this point so I may as well wait for Emma's in August and do a double girl party. We shall see.
She is a cutie. Is she sleeping better?
