Things that make us smile

Amanda loves the rocking dog, but she has not figured out how to climb up on it. I have been helping her step by step, but so far she has not made the connection on her own.

I am certain we will address her lack of mobility at her Child Find appointment next week. She is severely delayed in motor skills.
I think the small things she does show how well she is adjusting, after lunch, she creeps to her crib for her nap. She does not always sleep, but she seems to need that time alone to re-energize regardless.

Thankfully her cold is almost gone and she is not the snot machine she was. My goodness, but she can create a lot of ...mucous.
I cute her hair a little bit, trying to keep it out of her face, I will be glad when it is all one length and I can put clips in it. Or little bows, maybe even pigtails?
A very good friend is in Estonia right now adopting her sweet daughter Alina. Their court date is tomorrow, please pray all goes well for them. Alina is their 4Th Estonian child.

Amanda is such a pretty little girl! Everytime I see her on this puppy, she is having so much fun! I have decided to get one for Elijah!:)

Wow, Amanda is getting some meat on her bones.:) She is losing that frail, china-doll look. She also looks more settled and comfortable. So cute! I can't wait to see her in pigtails!!

She looks so pretty in that flowery skirt! Maybe once she feels more confident and safe her motor skills will take off. It sounds like she is making great progress in adjusting to her new life!

So glad to hear Amanda is adjusting so well. I see she is really good on routines... which helps you out. She will be adorable in pig tails.

Prayers for Alina to come home soon to her new family.
