Ellie reads...well she plays with books!

She's come a long way...when I first showed her the book she just would close it can keep her entertained for at least five minutes or so!

It is hard to believe we have just had her a little over one week. She has changed so much it is incredible!

Ellie is so stinkin' perfect!! You might want to keep her in her snow suit for the trip home... it snowed in Scottsdale yesterday. About 2-3 inches in North Scottsdale and 3-4 inches in Mesa. Just hail and sleet near our house. CRAZY!!! See you soon. We think of you every single day. Take care.

I love waking up in the morning and seeing what you guys have been up to. I didn't think it was possible, but Ellie gets even cuter by the day. I love that smile!

Hey,Cassie & Shaun!!!!
Ellie is a beautiful baby girl!!! Congratulations!! Sounds like the time of your lives!!! When you are on the plane make sure Ellie has something to suck on during take off and landing; like a bottle or pacifier. She doesn't know how to yawn to make her ears pop and the pressure hurts her sweet little ears! Also a little dose of baby benadryl will help her sleep on the plane!
I can't wait to meet the "new" family trio! Love & God Bless!!

Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us. I almost feel like I'm there with you. Your baby girl is absolutely precious. Baby Carlton says, "Awww she's so precious" everytime he sees her picture up on the screen. This morning he said, "I want to see her move" which translates into, "send another movie" Arriona will be 9 on Tuesday...I think of you two and how fast the next nine years will zoom by. Treasure every moment. Love you and can't wait to read what happens next. Sheri and fam

Wow, the shot of Ellie holding the book and posing for the camera with that incredible smile is priceless. She seems so happy with her Mommy and Daddy. And it won't be long when you will be putting her down to bed in her own room. That will be another special moment for you all. Love you guys and again so, so happy for you. Make sure you give Ellie another little squeeze from Boppy.
Look forward to more updates - you are doing an amazing job by the way.
Love, Kent
