Things have gone remarkably well this week. MJ and I took the girls out and about quite a bit. We explored parks, shopping, more shopping, and more shopping. Do you all know how long I have waited for lil shopping partners? It’s been wonderful! Mae goes along for the ride. She loves seeing new things! Elle loves picking out new clothes, new shoes, jewelry, sunglasses, tea sets…. Love it! The girl knows what she likes! Mae likes dressing up and wearing accessories too (no hair bows though). Have I mentioned I am in heaven! MJ is on estrogen overload. After having a testosterone filled house for years, I think I am entitled to a week or two of indulgence with my girls! It’s been great spending fun time with other adoptive moms and their kiddos too.
The girls are truly doing great! We couldn’t ask for things to go any better than they are! Do we have melt downs, and fear of abandonment issues? Yes, but we all have days that are better than others. Why should our girls be any different?
We see more of their personalities everyday. Mae cracks us up. She either wears this super serious, curious face, or this ear to ear smile that is contagious. Elle has changed so much in the past 10 days. There is now a twinkling light in her eyes that wasn’t there before. She is understanding English more everyday. She is one smart cookie! One of my new friends, Rachel, said she looks like a completely different child. 🙂 I love watching these two blossom! I am so glad we are on this journey, and that it led us to two beautiful daughters!
