One month home!

One month ago.....finally home!
One month home!  Where does the time go?  We feel extremely blessed that Sophia is adjusting so quickly. She is attaching to both Adam and me, and she adores her big brother Levi.  Who knew siblings could be so much fun?  In the morning and at nap time, Levi begs to wake up Sophia.  My answer is always the same.... "DO NOT wake up your sister...or else!"  Never wake a sleepy baby.  Those are words to live by.

Here's a few things we've learned about Sophia since Gotcha Day:

1.  She loves to eat anything and everything and all the time!

2.  Despite her cleft hands, she has remarkable dexterity.  In fact, a recent developmental test suggests her fine motor skills were equivalent to a 33 month old.

3.   She is leery of strangers.  Who wouldn't be in her situation?

4.  Still no words, but she is quite vocal and has a way of making her point.

5.  She is a FANTASTIC sleeper!  (We are hoping this rubs off on her brother.)

6.  She loves to give slobbery, drool covered kisses, and I gladly accept them!

Sophia is a happy, loving child who is a blessing to our family all around.  Man, what an awesome God we serve!  The Lord knew exactly what He was doing, and I praise Him for His perfect timing and faithfulness.
