Catch-Up

Today marks 2 months since Emme arrived home in the US and became a US citizen. Some days it seems like a lifetime ago and on other days it feels like yesterday. What I do know is that an amazing transformation has come about in the past 2 months in both of us. She has learned to trust again, to give and receive love and affection, to smile, to share and to be who she was meant to be. I have learned to be a little less selfish, to listen more and to appreciate the smallest of gestures. It was only 2 months ago that I was afraid of the future and today I can't imagine my life without this littlest blessing. We spent the weekend with friends at the children's museum (and we became members), a great day with MP and his family and mama even got a respite on Monday while Emme had tons of fun with grandma and nana.

Glad you're back! I missed my Emme updates! Are you videoing Emme a lot? I'm so glad I have my girls voices recorded! They change so quickly and I'm so glad I have their voices!
