Six months ago today, we met our daughter for the first time. This half-year has flown by, sped on by the relief of not waiting anymore. She is home, she is ours, we rejoice. Can you believe the difference six months, a family, and lots of love make?
Six months ago she couldn't sit up alone. Today, she is walking like a champ (she took her first steps on September 5).
She even stood up on her own without pulling up on anything for the first time today.
Six months ago today, her daddy and I were strangers to her, and her brothers were just pictures in a book. Today, she calls "Dada!" and then plays a silly game with him when he comes upstairs to see her. Today she comes to me for comfort when she falls. Today she grins and plays with her brothers whom she adores.
Six months ago today Laina's life changed immeasurably. Today, she spends an ordinary day with her family. And we are thankful.
