More snow on the way??

You always have a concern when a weatherperson says "this is really going to miss us and leave snow in other places" and you wake up to snow on the ground. They say more is on the way and I now tend to believe.

I thought I would catch up on Claire's vocab. She says...some animal sounds, she will repeat anything you ask her to say...sometimes trouble with a big sister. She has come to really love books...will she learn to turn them right side up?? She is beginning to master wooden puzzles...still somewhat frustrating with the whole up side down problem. She loves to "sing" at church...she just doesn't stop when we do. She still doesn't like the nursery, but will stay if Hannah stays....Hannah likes to stay. I would say all-in-all Claire can say about 25-30 words/phrases. She is still so curious about everything...she was really fascinated that you could take a book under the covers and read. She loves to open and close anything and everything..books, doors, dvds, cabinets, toilet lids, zippers (found out the hard way that can be trouble).

Thank you God for continued health and happiness for us and all we know and love.

That's great that she's saying so many things. I don't think my own two year old has that many words...we're working on that. Stay warm over there!

I can't believe how much like our Claire she is, it was like you were describing Claire Ling!

My name is Emmie and I found your blog through my mom. (steffie b.)I love reading about your daily activities and girls!

It's good to hear Claires learning so many words and new things! I rememeber when Sophia hated going to the nursery unless I went with her too. She has grown to really like it now though. We just make sure to tell her we'll come back to get her when church is over.
We have a ton of snow here and continue to get more as well! I'm sure your girls are having a fun time playing in it together!

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
