Show and Tell

I wanted to share which pics the girls chose for show and tell today. I laid out 3 pics for each girl to pick from. Gracie chose first and picked this pic of the two of us: DSC_5867

I really had no idea which one she would choose, so I'm glad she went first. I asked her what she would tell the class about her picture. She is still not great at stringing together lots of words, so she pieces together thoughts.
 She talked about being on my lap and also about her toys. I think she remembers that this picture was taken on our way back from Walmart. We let her choose whatever toys she wanted :)

Neither girl really paid any attention to the other 2 pictures and really didn't even acknowledge that they were of themselves.

Next, Wesleigh chose this pic: DSC_1760

I would have been shocked had she chosen a different one.
I asked her the same question, "What are you going to tell your friends about this picture?".
This is her reply, word for word, because I ran to write it down as soon as she said it!
"I want to tell my friends that I was a baby in China, and my family come to get me. And I so happy and my heart is Jesus heart."

Talk about make a mama smile! What a blessing these two are!! I pray that they will always use their story to share the love of Jesus.

Your posts on these photos have made me think so much. I always thought I didn't have baby photos of Lia (adopted at 14 months)...but bringing Jillian home at 3 is a WHOLE different game. I love that both girls chose the photo with you in them. And...even though it was an aside in this made me feel better when you mentioned that Gracie is still not great at stringing lots of words toghether. Our Jillian is starting Speech Therapy this week...I am so so anxious for her to be able to tell us in detail what she is thinking. These sweet girls are just so amazing. aren't they??? Thanks for sharing this post.

The girls did great today presenting their pictures to their friends at school! Both were SO PROUD of their picture. The first thing they pointed out to everyone was their Mommy!

I look forward to an exciting year with both Gracie and Wesleigh.
Love, Ms. Dupuy
