...from the very miracle of Noelle's life to her quickly blossoming into a little girl, Noelle has truly transformed right before our eyes over the last year.
She is certainly adored in the upstairs apartment as her nannies continue to daily teach her new words and phrases. Whenever they ask Noelle, "Who's pretty?" She is quick to strike the pose depicted below.
Yet even though Noelle is a willing helper, she is still a little girl who loves to be held and cuddled at the end of the day, too. Whenever a familiar face arrives, Noelle is quick to raise her hands with a request to be held, and honestly, it's a nearly impossible request to refuse.
Yet despite a love for being held close, Noelle has begun to venture around the playroom on her own, too. Sometimes she crawls...
...but most of the time she prefers to scoot from place to place while also wearing one of her winning smiles.
Yes, getting to see the transformation of love and healing that has happened in this precious girl over the last year has truly been amazing. We can't wait to see how she continues to transform in the days to come, and hopefully one day soon, that transformation will include a mama and a baba of her very own.
