New Update

We got a new update on baby B on Wednesday:

“You may recall from the last update that she has become so much more active in her bed. Her growth over the past few weeks has only made that more of the case! She is incredibly adept at holding onto things and manipulating them with her hands, which makes playtime really fun, because she loves new objects and toys and laughs when she plays. As with most kids, she loves to be touched, and giggles very much when she is, especially on her stomach! Her balance has improved greatly, and though she is not yet sitting on her own, she shows signs that soon she could be. Her movements are still quite jerky, and as a result throw off her balance. Her legs can also bear some weight, which is terrific! On the whole, she is developing and growing right on schedule – you can be proud of her! I know I am. I hope you enjoy your thanksgiving!

We are so thankful for our daughters...and so thankful for a new update!

What a nice treat for Thanksgiving time! It must have been wonderful to get something else to hold onto until your court date. Hopefully all of the activities of the Holidays will help as you eagerly wait! Enjoy reading your update a thousand more times until the 17th - amazingly two-ish weeks away!

I love to check in on your family once in awhile. I have a necklace from your Mom for my daughter we adopted in Guatemala, and we are currently starting the process in Ethiopia.
