What we are learning

Claire continues to learn some new words everyday. Let's take a look, shall we??

1. potatoe...popato
2. watermelon....menemelon
3. swimming...memming
4."IIII do it" meaning she would like you to help her. I guess because she hears us say...I will do it for you.

She loves to immitate any word we want her just sounds like all her other words. She is willing to say a sound but not really TRY to say the word. More practice I guess. She has learned the night ritual of saying goodnight and I love you....nigh and I you. Too precious.

We still remain about 8 months from referral. Earlier would be great but we are content to wait as we still are getting used to having a little one around again. Please continue to pray that he is safe and well cared for until we can have him home.

Love the language lessons. Sound very familiar!

And, while "I KNOW" how hard it is to wait for your referral (BELIEVE ME I DO!), really ENJOY your time now. I thought I was prepared for all the changes Claire would bring into our family, but the family dynamics were soooooo different. I think we're just about regrouped, finally!

Isn't that just a fun time. I still have to translate some of Mya's words and she's over 3. Those little ones make life such a joy (and pain at times). Gotta love 'em. said...

I sit in amazement most days wondering WHERE they learned all the stuff that flies out of their mouths. Then I realize it's from us! lol. I've never spent so much time with little people and they are a constant wonder to me. *grin*. said...

In response to your comment left on my blog. Yes, you are right that mom was a bad mom!!! If you change your settings on blogger and enter you e-mail I can respond directly to you. All my comments come into my e-mail...

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..

Favorite Poem

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
