It was so fun to see how he has changed and grown throughout the year, and lucky dog, he's done some things that I have never done.
Congratulations to your beautiful family!

Hey! This is SO cool - your timeline is so similar to ours - Our son's Gotcha day was May 30/2011 and his second birthday was June 11/2011 - just days of being the opposite dates of yours! (Canadian adoption).
We are also with CAFAC /Ethiopia and started our process in June 2008 - and are just reopening! I think I've seen you guys at kids spot!! Anyway... great year of FIRSTS! LOVE IT!
