6 months old and Home 2 months!!!

Lola Joy Kalkidan Stanley is 6 months old and has been home for two months. This morning, we went out for a little photo shoot. I am NOT a photographer, but had fun shooting this little princess.
This was a funny pic. Our neighbors kitty, Frosty, came to love on Lola.
Lola fell backwards and I loved this shot!!:)

I am getting good at sitting up now!

Again, she plopped backwards and I stole a pic!
She was being so serious!

Love those eyes!

Angel baby!

There's a smile!
You've got the CUTEST little baby face!
Lola Joy is the most precious little girl. For a little girl who was quite wobbly when we got her, she has made great strides! She is meeting her developmental milestones and is learning new things with each new day. Lola is rolling both ways, and rolls across the floor! lol! She is sitting up, saying "Da Da", eating rice cereal and pears. She smiles, she laughs, she loves! She is truly a gift from God. Our lives are enriched and full of JOY each day by her. God is SOOO good. She is adored by her sweet big brothers! They love her more than I could have ever prayed for or imagined. It's so amazing how God can work such a miracle. We are overwhelmed by emotion and blessed by the Call from God to be Lola Joy's forever family. Thank you God for this INDESCRIBABLE gift! We love you Lolee!!!!!
