Chickadee Number 4

CoCo Daisy

CoCo was a pleasant little surprise who entered our lives at a very crazy and hectic time.  We had just moved to North Carolina, Chris started a new job, Chris lost a new job, Chris started a new career, we received a referral to adopt a baby, we built a new house, we moved into a new house, I returned to work after a 2 year hiatus, and I was preparing to go to China for 3 weeks to bring home my baby girl.   All of that in the space of 6 months!   Needless to say, we were surprised.

From the start, CoCo was a joy.  She was the most perfect, sweet, easy baby that anyone could imagine.  It was as if she knew that we already had so much on our plates and that we needed a little extra joy in our lives.

CoCo has always remained one of the sweetest and most lovable children in the world.  She is full of smiles and giggles, hugs and 'crazy kisses.'   

But, around the age of 1, CoCo started getting into trouble!  Once she was able to walk, it was as if nothing could stop her.  She was (and still is) into everything!  She can run faster, scream louder, jump higher, and get into more trouble than any other child I've ever met.   The other kids started singing "Bad CoCo, Bad CoCo.  What you gonna do?  What you gonna do when they come for you!" every time she walked into the room.

But, despite all the work, she brings more joy into my life than I ever dreamed imaginable.   Not a day goes by that she doesn't make me laugh.
