Final Post

I always intended for this blog to serve as a baby book for Marguerite, depicting the process that brought her to us and the milestones that took place on her road to becoming a Leone. This blog provides a story of Marguerite's adoption, the wonderful gift that we received when Marguerite was placed with us, and the great joy that we felt upon the finalization of her adoption.

With finalization behind us, it's now time to close this blog. From this point forward, Marguerite's milestones and smiles and adventures will be chronicled, together with those of her parents and siblings, at our family blog, Munchkins on the Path.

As for this blog, I am printing it in hardcover book format for Marguerite to cherish and enjoy as she grows older.

As I type this, Marguerite is eight months old and is standing unassisted. She has taken one step on her own, and she is "cruising" all over the place. She is bound to be an early walker! Marguerite has just popped her first tooth, and she eats solid finger-foods like there is no tomorrow. She entertains us and fills our lives with joy. I can't wait to see all the adventures life with Marguerite brings in the coming years.

We love you, dear daughter, Marguerite! This blog-book is a our gift to you.
