Great Weekend

Sophie's personality comes out more all the time. We had a great weekend and got to spend some time with her. She's a joy. To think that a month ago she possibly had never heard English and now she is learning new words every day. She loves cars and points them out from the window, our front porch, the car window, etc. Today her granddaddy was watching a Nascar race and she would say, car, fast, fast, fast! Maybe he will have a racing buddy!

Yesterday we went to a children's festival and even though most of the activities were a little too old for her, she enjoyed the atmosphere and watching the activities.

Last night she learned the joys of chips and cheese dip.  She caught on quickly!

When first home from China she was afraid of the grass and wouldn't touch it or put her feet down in it.  Now she loves to be outside and just takes off. 

Happy girl!

What is it about "dip-dip" that they all love? So happy for you all that she's adjusting so well. I love those big smiles.

What a great smile! She has really brightened over this past month. I remember when my boys came, they just had kind of an empty look in their eyes. Didn't take long for the eyes to brighten as Sophie's have.
