What a little joy she is. It amazes me how adaptable these kids are. She has welcomed all these new changes in her life with so much joy and happiness. She is a little ham... she walks around the house being silly and laughing. Physically, she is walking with better balance and has learned to do stairs (at 3 1/2 years she couldn't walk down steps without falling). She goes to sleep like a little dream, as long as she is next to my bed and has gotten many kisses first.
Zoe's food issues have disappeared since we came home. She doesn't need to eat constantly or hide food in her pockets. She is adjusting to our different types of food, but is a really good eater and is willing to try anything. She is picking up english quickly and things will come out of the blue. The toilet paper ran out yesterday and she said to me "All gone!". We are working on using "Please" to get what she wants, instead of whining, and she is beginning to figure it out.
She is so affectionate! She is always giving kisses and asking for kisses in return. She wraps her arms around you and hugs you tight. She still needs mommy to be very close and if I go off to do something, she is calling for me, to make sure I am there. She is slowly opening up to her daddy.
We are completely in love with this girl! She has the sweetest laugh, the softest voice and the chubbiest little neck to kiss.
You Are Mine
I did not hear your first breath,
Nor see your first step,
But you are mine.
From our hearts to our home,
With God's love from above,
You are mine.
Once a thought in my mind,
Only God knew the time,
Now you are mine.
