Decemeber Days...

I didn't give you the gift of life, but life gave me the gift of you.
Last night we had our second post-placement visit with our social worker. It went fine and the report will be sent to our adoption agency soon. It hasn't quite been 3 months, but our social worker is adopting from Ethiopia so she wanted to get this month's visits completed a little early. They leave the day after Christmas to go get their son. Congratulations to them and safe travels!!!

Emma and I enjoyed the cold day by spending it inside in our pajamas. We are actually still in them! It is nice to have a day at home with nothing to do but spend time together. She is such a funny girl and has entertained me all day today. The way she will crawl over to me and give me love just melts my heart. The weekend is busy with Chase having a basketball game tomorrow and then we are going to take the kiddos to see Santa in Nashville. Of course Kentucky plays tomorrow so we'll be sure to catch the game as well. I still have plenty to do around here before I go back to work soon, like wrapping presents, finishing up thank you notes, and getting the house back in order. Needless to say, none of these things take precedence over spending time with Emma. So there is still lots to do. Here's some pictures of the last week or so.

So excited...

Caught being still...for a moment

This is her new way of crawling. I guess she thinks she can get where she wants to go faster. We call it the Mowgli crawl.

Keeping her eyes on her big brother...

My sweet girl... I love that smile!

Everyone teases me about always having a bow in her hair. You can tell why...Her hair has grown so much that it is down in her eyes.

Just removed from playing with the Christmas tree...

Is that an ornament?
