Sweet Moments

We are having such a blast with Addy. I can not even put into words how perfect our family feels now. For the longest time if I was asked if we would have more kids, I would have said absolutely not! Four in our family is enough, we are good, do not ask that question again! :)

Oh how the Lord has HIS plan for us, and it is not always what we plan for. To follow His word,to be His hands and feet, and to be obedient has been such a huge part of our life the past year and all I can say is Thank God!

Addy has fit right in to our family, just like she was meant to be. She is such a happy, happy little girl. I could not imagine our lives without her.

Within the last week she has... added please to her list of signs, has said her first English words~ hi, baby & no, seeks us out for hugs and kisses, goes to her bed and falls asleep when asked to, says eww when I change her diaper, sits on the potty and pretends to pee, plays with toys with meaning and purpose instead of just thowing them, realized she can drink whenever she wants during the day, climbed up the deck steps, found out play sand is alot of fun, caught lightening bugs with her brother and sister, walks with her eyes closed and peeks at what she is about to run into, spins in circles and laughs uncontrollably until she falls down, sat in a mud puddle and loved it, tasted rain and had her first marshmallow!!

That is alot for one week and I even think I left a few things out. :)

God is sooooo good!!!!

She did her own hair here!!!

Hopefully video to come soon!!!! She is a doll baby, you have to see her in action!!!


  1. I gotta tell you that she certainly has a spark in her eyes that I didn't see when you guys were in Ukraine. WONDERFUL!!!! Glad to see you guys are equally as happy as she is you can see it all over her!! YAY --- Hope God continues to bless you all!

  2. She is such a blessing to your family!!! Her face and smile is so consuming. Her big brother and sister are so proud!!! I can't wait to spend next week with all of them, you might not get her back!!!!
