And just in case you were wondering if I ever put clothes on her...
Birthday girl 12

I do.

And they are adorable (thanks to many friends and family!)

But of course she loves just playing in her diaper and gets pretty giddy about it!

Well, the balloons may have helped.

Birthday girl 10

A little.

And just in case you were wondering if she smiles that gorgeous smile everytime I bring out the camera...

Hanbok 4

She doesn't.

Hanbok 5

Not even when she's all dressed up in her beautiful Korean hanbok given to her by her foster mother. Nope.

And especially not when her mommy tries putting the headpiece on to "complete the look."
Hanbok 2

Please please please look at mommy??!! (as I jump up and down acting like a monkey!)
Um No.

Hanbok 3

Oh well.

I'll take what I can get! Even if it's only the ones with no clothes on!

Birthday girl 7

We prayed that Elliana would be home before her first birthday and God answered that prayer... We have now been home 3 weeks already with our precious daughter! We praise Him for entrusting us with this beautiful gift to raise, love and disciple.

Saengil Chukha Hamnida Elliana! Sarang hae yo!

(Happy Birthday Elliana! I love you!)
