Rachel's 3rd Birthday

We celebrated Rachel's 3rd birthday this week.  We brought her home when she was 18 months old so we have now had her as long as she was in the orphanage.  She has grown a lot and is talking a lot.  She definitely has a strong will but is also a lot of fun.  We had her a "Pwincess" birthday party.  She wanted "Cindewewa" and "Snow White" for her birthday.  Since Leah had her birthday in May she has been waiting all summer for her birthday (not very patiently).  She has been singing Happy Birthday to herself since she didn't think anyone else was going to get around to it.  She was thrilled when we finally picked up her cake and had a party for her.  She is getting ready to start preschool this week and she is very excited.  She didn't think it was fair when everyone else started school and she didn't.  She really loves going places and gets bored with staying home all the time so this will be good for her. 

When we look at her it is very hard to believe that she hasn't always been a part of our family.  She fits in so well and certainly feels at home here.  As a matter of fact, I think she is in charge.  We are very thankful for her and look forward to all the excitement she will bring to our life.
