Our lawnmower is having some issues these days, so I decided to take advantage of the wild flowers growing in the backyard :) These girls never cease to amaze me in the difference between them and the way their brothers were when they were little. These were actually taken a couple of weeks ago. You won't believe how tan they have gotten since then.
Gracie is definitely my fairy tale, dream girl. Every day is better if she gets to wear a dress that twirls :) It is almost dance recital time and Gracie is in her element. They actually have her placed in the front row...not quite sure what they're thinking. One thing I do know, she will be worth watching!!
Richard walked by and saw the flower show. He took the camera from me and took a few.
Love these girls!
The coolest thing has been happening since I got home from China. Gracie is actually talking about her memories from China. She was 3 1/2 when she came home, so I know she remembers some things. Before my trip, she would admit to remembering very little. Since I've been home, she has actually been telling me about the house she lived in and some other little details . Here are a few of the things she has shared:
*She took baths with bubbles, but no soap. Guessing the bubbles were the soap :)
*She helped with the dishes and there were bubbles in the water.
*She saw a shark at the aquarium. I know they went to the aquarium on a PRO field trip :)
*She told me the name of her goat/sheep stuffed toy that she came to us with. "Si YaYa".
I'm not quite sure about the psychology of it all, but for some reason, seeing pictures of me in her foster home...with her foster mom has made it ok for her to share these things with me. I am so happy about it! I know she will forget all of those little details at some point and I would love to have them documented before she does.
