And she's TWO!

Sorry for the lack of posting in the past few months...things have been crazy hectic and not in a good way and i promise i will catch up on the last few months in a couple of days and post plenty of pics but for now I want to do a special post because tomorrow my sweet asian princess turns TWO.

With this milestone comes so many mixed emotions for me. I was talking to my best friend Cady on the phone last night and I was telling her about how I wonder if Chloe's birthmother is thinking of her at this very moment and if she ever thinks about the child she gave up on this date two years ago? There is just so many unanswered questions i have that i can't even put into words that just seem to come to life on this day. I just wish I could see her birthmother and thank her for this precious child just to let her know how Chloe is loved by so many people and how much joy she has brought into my life. Its bittersweet. Cady was listening to this amazing song the other day while on the phone with me called Boats and Birds by Gregory and the Hawks. The lyrics of this song seem to speak to me and remind me of Chloe's birthmother and the emotions she might have had on that day two years ago. The feelings that I can't put into words seem to be in this song. Turn your speakers up and listen to this amazing song I promise you it will make your heart smile. here's the lyrics also in case your interested.....
Boats and Birds by Gregory and the Hawks.
If you'll be my star
I'll be your sky
you can hide underneath me and come out at night
when I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

but you can skyrocket away from me
and never come back if you find another galaxy
far from here with more room to fly
just leave me your stardust to remember you by

If you'll be my boat
I'll be your sea
a depth of pure blue just to probe curiosity
ebbing and flowing and pushed by a breeze
I live to make you free
I live to make you free

But you can set sail to the west if you want to
and past the horizon till I can't even see you
far from here where the beaches are wide
just leave me your wake to remember you by

If you'll be my star
I'll be your sky
you can hide underneath me and come out at night
when I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine
But you can skyrocket away from me
and never come back if you find another galaxy
far from here with more room to fly
just leave me your stardust to remember you by
stardust to remember you by.



That song is dedicated to Chloe's birthmother on this special day. I hope somehow she finds peace in her heart.

Tomorrow Cady and I are taking Chloe some fun places for her birthday then we are having a family party later that evening. Chloe's party isin't until saturday and of course its an ELMO party so look for pictures =). For now I leave you with a few recent pictures of the birthday girl who continues to be my shining star each and every day.
