So much to little time...

I am on completely borrowed time as I no longer have Sara or Don blogging for me.  Sadly, I haven't had a moment to blog before now.  However, it is naptime--not a fun time for Miss Millie.  During our last week in China, Millie decided to boycott naps and she's been doing it ever since.  I have faith she will embrace it again soon.  Failure is not an option.

I am going to make this quick and then I will look for opportunities to post other things as I get more into a routine.

We have been home almost two weeks and we are doing well.  Millie is an amazing, brave, bright, and beautiful little girl.  She is doing great and we are so proud of her.  I think every day gets a little better.  When I step back and think of all she has been through since October 10th it brings me to tears.  When I step back even more and think of all that I don't know that she's been through, it makes me cry harder.

Thank you to everyone who sent comments, emails, read the blog, and prayed for us while we were away.  It was such an encouragement and we believe things are going so well because of those prayers!  Thank you so much!

I'll keep the post short and the pictures plentiful!


Millie's signature dance move.  
She figured since Lindy has a dance named after her (the Lindy Hop), she deserves one, too.

My super sweet super stars!

Getting her spaghetti on!  

No noodle is safe if Millie is around.

My pumpkin!

Wow I can't believe it's almost been a month. I think you've done a fantastic job keeping all your fans up to date. I'm so glad things are going well. Millie looks like she is a precious girl. I think of ya'll and pray for you often. And that Pinkalicious costume is Pinktastic!

It is so good to hear that things are going well. I hope Lindy is adjusting to sharing the attention. How is Millie's English coming?

What a beautiful girl! And a beautiful house. So glad to hear things are going well. Mia was just wondering about Lindy and her new little sister the other day. Hugs to you all!

Hi Lisa,

I am not sure I knew about this new blog but I did a bunch of catching up now. Millie is just darling and I love your honest heart. I am sure it is an adjustment for everyone. I very much remember trying to "get to know" Kate and she was only 10 months old. I cannot imagine that with a 2 and 1/2 year old!!! She is beautiful.

I will say some extra prayers that you are exactly the Mom Millie needs you to be. I have no doubts you are already though:)
