SnapShot Sunday ~ Annabelle

This is my Annabelle.

She has only been home for a little over a year.

She is one of those little angels who tell you like it is and has no issues with standing up for in what she believes in.

She is my shadow...if you see me, she is not far behind.

She does not like to be alone. She will take a nap in the afternoon - all by herself (seeing how Francesca does not nap anymore) - but she needs to be reassured over & over again that I am waiting for her down stairs.

She has been totally open with me from within the first 10 minutes of our union. I think it was the M&Ms I had, but my husband so disagrees (according to him ~ she is exactly like me...which in my opinion isn't a bad thing).

She is a spit-fire (if I must say) and if she doesn't want to do something ~ anything, she won't.

She has a few nicknames in our household..."Tootsie Roll" "Bam-Bam" and "Bruno" (long story on that one).

She has picked up a few bad habits from Francesca, but what else did I expect...they are after all sisters...

She LOVES her baby dolls, stroller & shopping cart!

She is always ready to go anywhere & everywhere...both of our girls are well travelers!

She was not supposed to be an "Annabelle" but first a "Janelle" than a "Sofia". Some special angel out there funded her life saving surgery when she was only 2 months old. It was this angel that named her, Annabelle Faith.

She loves to eat and I mean EAT!

She is still so tiny (wearing only 24 month size clothing ~ still)

This is my Annabelle and I wouldn't want her any other way.

Ni Hao Y'all

I love your Annabelle!! I have pictures of her on my computer - that you got upon your referral!! Waiting with you for our girls was quite the experience and I loved your daughter & shared in your joy like my own!!

Do you know the person who named her Annabelle Faith? I so remember going from Janie to Sofia to Annabelle - FITS her perfectly ;)

Gotta get on my Snapshot Sunday. I think you might have cheated & planned this post. lol!!
