A month already?

How did that happen? I cannot believe it!! Sydney has been in our arms forever for a MONTH...A WHOLE MONTH!!!! We have come so stinking far in a month.

  • From her not wanting anything to do with me to calling out for me before anyone else!

  • From demanding a bottle NUMEROUS times a day to not having a bottle in almost 2 weeks....NOR DOES SHE ASK FOR THEM ANYMORE!!!

  • From calling out for "PaPa" to calling him "Daddy"(1/2 the time) like the boys do!

  • From hellatious tantrums one after another to only one every couple days(except bedtime/bath)!

  • From not knowing how to really run to CHASING her brothers around our house!

  • From ignoring a sneeze to SAYING IN ENGLISH....Bless you(BESS CHU)!

  • From not being so keen on riding in a carseat in Guate to SCREAMING and CLAPPING when we get in the carseat!

  • From her not liking me and me not being too terribly fond of her to actually loving each other a little more every day!

The list goes on but you get the gist! Things are going pretty darn well in the BamaGirl family!!! It's still hairy some days and I am stressed beyond measure sometimes but things are getting there. And for that alone, I am so thankful!!!!

Oh my goodness...I love your family picture!!! I also love hearing that things are improving each day. You are blessed!!!!!

So no TA this week. I talked to our social worker a few hours ago. I'll post details on the blog sometime today, after I have had a chance to talk to Aaron (he's in Utah). Thank you for your sweet comments and most of all for your prayers!
