1 Year Ago We Met Malaena-Sloan....

One year ago today, we met our sweet precious angel. It was about 10am at the Marriott in Guatemala City! My heart is changed forever and ever! We had such an amazing little get-away with our girl!
It's a brisk, cold day and we are prepared for SHOPPING!
Hmmm...Malaena-Sloan was so eager to "go to" Santa until he reached for her. Then...she had to really examine "all that" and she wasn't quite so eager!
Not sure about this man in the red suit!
This is my favorite picture! Malae can get the point across exactly how she is feeling!
The three of us on our first "HOLIDAY"!
Daddy and his girl!
Can you believe this picture...this was Malaena-Sloan while we shopped! She slept like a "baby" possibly because she hardly slept the night before. I could get used to this!!!
This cracks us up! She does it when we tell her to smile or show people her pretty teeth! She's a hoot and I don't know where she learned to grin like this?!!!
Little Miss Independent in her sqeeky shoes that finally fit!
Just hangin' out and playin'!

What great pictures! Everyone looks so very happy (with the exception of the great Santa shot).
Enjoy this first Christmas season together.

Luca has the same silly grin. He squinches up his eyes and gets the big grin across his face. Adorable!

I can hardly believe it was a year ago that I met you guys in GUA!! She's not the same little baby I met! She's a beautiful little toddler now!
