Kissin' Cousins

Amelia met one her cousins yesterday. Baby Sara lives in Texas. She was adopted domestically by her parents, David and Pamela.

As you can see, Amelia and Sara look a bit alike! I don't think the girls noticed, however. They were more interested in making sure neither of them got ahold of any toys that the other wanted!
Sara is a month younger than Amelia, but she weighs in around ten pounds heavier. Isn't she pretty? Aren't they both beautiful?

Meelsie will have the opportunity to see some more cousins later this week...the Lady Howletts are packing up and heading to KC and other parts of Missouri. More to come!

2 CUTE 4 WORDS! So glad the girls finally met each other - thankful for the miracle of adoption, and thanks, Lori, for your kindness and encouragement throughout the process! We are truly blessed -
all of us and these beautiful little girls!

Lori, darling photos! KC is my home town, I LOVE Kansas City! We now live in the very south east corner, Cape Girardeau, MO. It is about 1 1/2 hours south of ST Louis, MO. If you are even close, email me so I can meet you and your daughters! If you are near ST LOuis, I'll come there : ) If I miss you, enjoy the "Show-ME state"
