153 Days

That's FIVE months our little Mihret has been HOME!! 3,672 HOURS we have been able to wake up and see her BEAUTIFUL little face! 220,320 minutes we have been able to LOVE on her, hold her, cuddle her, tickle her, share with her, teach her...


153 Days that THIS crazy family has been in HEAVEN and LOVING every single minute with our beautiful daughter... and the girls silly new sister!!!

It really hasn't taken Mihret long to feel comfortable, safe, attached, loved RIGHT here in her HOME!  We see a new little snipit of her halarious personality each day! She is a bright eyed, smart little girl with a BIG HUGE smile and a crazzzzzy lil wave to everyone she sees!

She is a year and a half old now.... and PACKED full of PERSONALITY!

She is saying words like:

GOOD
GIRL
OUCH
BYE
HI
GO
PEE PEE
POO POO
CACA
MOMMA
DADDA
KIKI (Kinzi)
BITE
MINE
PLEASE
ONE MORE
GONE
COOKIE
CANDY
BOOK
SHOE
JUICE
WAWA (Water)
BABY
BED
CHEESE
CHEERS
TEETH
KNEE
EYE
NOSE...


She is taller, stronger, much more healthy - and most important - she is HAPPY! LOVED! Everyday! NOW and FOREVER!

She LOVES to be held, she likes to sit in the BIG chairs to eat meals, she loves to play ball, she recently started to love on her dollies, she likes to color on the walls and put stickers on cabinets! ha!... she drinks soy milk and loves cookies and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  She is not a fan of TV - but LOVES to be read to.  She likes to pick out the book for you to read before naps and bedtime. She likes bows in her hair and she doesn't like to be dirty or messy. She LOVES to smile for the camera now and she ADORES and SCREAMS with excitement when I share with her pictures of her Ethiopian Buddies from Hannah's Hope!  She gives the worlds best hugs and kisses - she gives the best pouty look when she wants something.  She loves water bottles and wants to carry one around and put the lid on and off and pour water into things, she DIGS bathtime - without bubbles just lotsa toys and a little trickle of water running!  She runs to meet Daddy at the font door when he comes home.  She absolutely loves every bit of attention she gets from her crazy big sisters.  She is sleeping great, eating good, and going potty like a BIG Girl.  If we are sitting at a stoplight for too long, she tells me to, 'GO GO GO!' :) She likes to pretend to eat and she likes to pretend to feed ya...

She is KIND
She is SMART
She is IMPORTANT ;)

Aaaaaaaaaw and WE SURE DO LOVE HER!
She is a BLESSING we thank GOD for EVERYDAY!
