And since it’s her three month anniversary, I’m sharing little bits about her from our previous month,
Here’s how she’s doing developmentally this month:
We had dinner with friends who leave this week for China to adopt their 6th child. Sixth. They have three biological boys, adopted two boys from Korea and are now going back for their sixth boy. They are a-mazing people! They said isn’t it funny how after a while, you forget that they look different than you do. You just look at them and see your child and nothing else…and I can 100% say that is the truth. Twice this month, I had people question whether Ashby was mine or not and both times, it caught me off guard. When I look at that sweet face, I see my daughter. Honestly…I see my daughter and nothing different. So, when the lady at the dentist said “really, she’s yours?”…it surprised me. Yes, she’s mine. Forever and always, she’s mine.
I took this picture last week…the secretary at Kensington’s school let Ashby pick out a sticker…and out of all the stickers, she picked the US Flag heart one…and then proceeded to stick it right on top of China on her shirt. Obviously, she has no idea what any of that means, but it made me laugh. I think she feels right at home here in the USA.
Don’t forget, it’s Meal Planning Monday…
…I’ve got your covered this week for suppers!
