Happy Birthday, Maimie Beth!

Today is Maimie Beth's birthday. Because there was not a note left with her at the Social Welfare Institute, Maimie was given an estimated birthday of October 11. Doesn't she look like a pumpkin pie in her little fall outfit?

Although we are having a larger party for her on Saturday, we couldn't let today pass without any celebration. We had a little pink cake and ice cream. I had set a couple of things aside for Maimie before we even had her referral information, so I wrapped them up for her to unwrap tonight. It was too precious watching her tear off one little piece of wrapping paper at a time. After each piece, she motioned for us to wait where we were--she'd be right back. Then she went to the kitchen garbage can to throw each piece away before ripping into the next.

Look out, Rachael Ray!

Here is a video of Maimie's birthday wish. It's a little long, but she's persistent!

Happy 2nd Birthday Maimie!!! What a transformation she has made since coming home in February. She is a beautiful little girl with a million dollar smile and a wonderful demeanor. It was a privilege to be there Saturday night to help her celebrate her birthday with family and friends. We are so blessed to have Maimie as one of our grandchildren.
In Christian Love,
Grandma & Grandpa

Oh my goodness, that video was just precious! I love her little squeal at the end. She is so beautiful and it is obvious how well she is doing under all the love and care you all are giving to her. You are all so blessed.
