Life is Good

It's amazing what a night of good rest and some sunshine can do to brighten your spirits!  We have been loving the gift of the sunshine God has given us the past few days...just what we needed.  We have taken LOTS of walks and played outside and Lily loves it.  She is my kind of girl who loves to be outdoors. 

Lily is doing great and has a sunny disposition most all of the time.  She loves to laugh and figure out how things work.  She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to let us know about it!  Night time and naps were HARD the first few days we were home but the past couple of days have been much better.  I'm cautiously optimistic but definitely celebrating the small successes we have had in this area.  She is sleeping in her crib now and not in our bed which we are both VERY happy about. 

She eats a wide variety of foods (quiche, asparagus, broccoli, apples, oranges) and now we know she even likes Mexican!  I finally got my Mexican fix tonight and Lily did great.  She loved her rice and chicken quesadilla...it was a perfect ending to a great day. 

Tomorrow Lily meets her cousin for the first time...I'm sure they will be fast friends as he is so much fun to be around.  He affectionately calls her "Wiwwy"...so sweet.  She has also had fun skyping with her aunt Debbie and cousins Marlee and Kelly...they taught her to stick out her tongue (even more than she already does!).   

My "Sherpa" never ceases to amaze me...he has unpacked all our bags, washed and folded all our laundry, mowed the lawn, cut the crepe myrtles and went back to work on Monday with only  2 hours of sleep.  He is with me every step of the way and I could not do it without him.  I am so thankful that God put him in my life.  I miss him already after being with him non-stop for two weeks...I could get used to that!  
 
We appreciate your continued prayers as we get settled into our routine.  Michael was praying last night as we went to bed and thanking God for answering every one of our specific prayers for Lily.  We never want to forget what we have seen and experienced the past several weeks together...life changing is all I can say.  There are millions of other orphans like Lily in need of a family...break our hearts Lord for the things that break yours.  

Thought you may enjoy a few pictures from the past several days home...

This revolution, the information revoultion, is a revolution of free energy as well, but of another kind: free intellectual energy. It's very crude today, yet our Macintosh computer takes less power than a 100-watt bulb to run it and it can save you hours a day. What will it be able to do ten or 20 years from now, or 50 years from now?money transfer comparison
