Enjoying summer...many 1st's

Adopting a child is like watching a flower bloom, every layer more beauty opens up to you. Our little girl is truly enjoying life, and has changed so much. I still remember holding her in Ethiopia, trying so hard to have her enjoy a ride on the swing. She would have nothing to do with it, just cried until she was back in my arms. NOW, however she yells if I remove her too soon from the swing. She wants to go higher and higher, not happy until her little feet hit above my head!

Life Changing Event

How could I forget? When ever you have a life-changing event you should update your wills. I think adopiton would be one of those times. Well we are about 75% done with our re-adoption, I think I will request that our current attorney review and update our wills as needed.

"Mommy I did it all by myself"

Well I gave the tooth a good yank, heard the root rip and left her alone in the room. I went to do laundry. She kept wanting to wiggle it, play with it, and try to loop a string around it. No sooner I started tossing dirty cloths in the washer then the cat jumped up on the window ledge, she saw something fly by the outside light. It was very small and caught my eye as pretty. As soon as it few by, my daughter yelled. "Mommy I did it all by myself!" I knew exactly what she did, and I truly think the "tooth fairy" was outside the window watching and waiting to gather a beautiful white tooth!
