Two months ago yesterday I received our youngest daugther. In so many ways these past two months have seemed like an eternity. The 37 month wait also felt like an eternity. It hard to believe that 2 months and 37 months of waiting are very different yet very similar. When we received Darci, she could only sit up when put in a sitting position. She could stand and very wobbly walk around the edge of the bed. Today she is crawling all over the place. Rolling from front to back and back to front. Can sit up all by herself. She pulls herself up and then walks around and this week she began to walk away from furniture and take some steps on her own. She still prefers crawling but I know in just a few more weeks our precious girl will be walking all over the place. I started back to work on the 5th of August and she stayed home with her big sister. This past Thursday was her first day to go to childcare and she cried when I left her. It broke my heart because I was so concerned that she would fear all day long that I was not coming back. When I picked her up she was happy and happy to see me but not ready to leave, a great sign!!! However Friday morning she cried again when I left her, but all was good and she doesn't cry for very long. I know she is in GREAT hands and is very LOVED while I am at work and I do not worry about this at all. I just cringe at another adjustment in her small little world. She has no idea what is going on, but she has a mom and dad who love her very much as do her sisters and a multitude of family and friends!!! I cannot wait (well yes I can) until the day she is old enough to understand the journey that we traveled to get her and how important family and friends were to us during the journey. There are so many aspects of our trip to China that I miss and cannot wait to take Darci back to her homeland to show her the country where she was born and its rich history. We have been blessed in so many ways!!! Darci you have been in our arms for 2 months now, but you were in our hearts long before that!!! Mommy and Daddy love you so much and so do your big sisters!! Happy 2 month anniversary!!!!
