Today at 1:30 we go to court to finalize Amelia's adoption. This morning I was discussing this with Gavin while he held Ameila and he said this: 
"She is my special baby. I wanted a baby when we didn't have one - when it was just me. Now we have a girl baby. Now I like girls. I don't hate them anymore."

The finalization went smoothly and quickly. Our appointment was at 1:30, and we were back in our car by 1:50, and that includes waiting on a certified copy of some documents. We should get Amelia's new birth certificate within a month. Here we are with the judge that finalized the adoption: 

And here are Amelia's first pictures as our official, legal, 100% ours daughter:
