7 months.......





Today is Jan 7th......
On June 7th.....
Airline tickets were bought and we flew to Ecuador.....
what a difference seven months can make......
Grace WAS TERRIFIED of dogs.....
had no language.....
no speech.....
gritted her teeth ALOT....

Seven months later
she has a home,
She has brothers- she will sign "two brothers" so cute!
She has a sister that she asks for by name- signs and says "aaaa-ley"
A mama
a Papa- whom she adores.... (mental note: must video happy dance)
"three dogs"
she knows her colors and letter recognition, can almost sign all ABC's
I would say 150+/- signs
ten or so spoken words,
can "sing" songs....
ask for what she wants to eat (this morning signed "juice? cereal? Please") I couldnt get it ready fast enough- you ask for it baby and its yours......

we wont even get started on how much little G's love has changed me.....
How she has rocked my world.....
There might be toys on every flat surface,
empty juice cups in the sink,
dirty little people clothes to add to the list,
dog hair in corners that hasnt been swept properly,
Note to self:
its the eternal things that matter......


I remain,
Under His wings,
Anna
