A Ladybug in the window

You are such a beautiful child Kira

Just a few minutes ago I spotted a ladybug in the window. I pointed it out to Kira who loves ladybugs and she stared at it till she crawled all the way up out of sight! The oddest thing is that today I am participating in our Adoption Agency's Webinar to talk about my process in the waiting child program. In addition we are considering a sister for Kira, just not sure when the right time is. Perhaps that little ladybug was trying to tell me something.

Currently my delightful child does not like to share my attention of affection. She is also very speech delayed and gets frustrated trying to communicate. However, I believe every child is unique and different and will speak when they want. I mean hey I do enough speaking for the two of us! She is saying a few 2 syllable words, which is great. She absolutely understands everything and sometimes she amazes me with the funny things she does. Like today, she put her little socks in her shoes just the way I do for her. She dresses herself, puts her shoes on and combs her hair. She watches attentively at everything I do and tries to be a big girl by imitating me. I just crack up, because some garments she's not sure of, and will wear them around her waist!

Anyway, I just had to blog about our ladybug sighting.
Looking as the Ladybug climbed up the window
This was too funny of a photo to not share. We put Kira's pants on Elmo and it just looked so cute as she was walking with this stuffed toy as big as her. She doesn't go anywhere without him.
Let's go Elmo! You're so slow today, maybe you should eat your wheaties!

Hey Vivian,
I agree. Hope things are fine with you all.
do you mind if I add you to my web site?

Ivy, she is adorable! Cael also has the same Elmo which he loves. She is growing so much. Do you have her in speech therapy? That will help immensely.

When is your blog make over? I can't wait. I am also so happy that soon we will see you and Dany!!

So you spoke at the Holt webminar? How was it? We have never been asked to speak, they don't like us, we are Latin and non-religious and they are probably afraid of Jose...LOL.

I can't wait to see little Kira in her Halloween costume!

Thanks for stopping by my blog to introduce yourself. We are lucky Mommy's aren't we! As I was reading your blog post from several months back, I could relate so much to what you were saying. As tears began to roll down my face, it took me back to just a few months ago...Thanks for sharing! Your daughter is so beautiful and you can just tell she is right where she belongs!I'll be stopping by to say hello again. Take care,

I love ladybug sightings! I think I've passed the excitement on to my daughters also.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I don't mind at all if you add me to your blog.

Your daughter is darling. I look forward to following her adventures.
