What a difference two months makes!

I was going back looking at all the pictures we took in Guatemala on Abbie's pick up trip. I don't think I ever posted this picture because it was so sad. At the time you could just place Abigail wherever you wanted and she would just stay there unless you directed her other wise. Poor baby fell asleep right where she sat. See the piece of bread in her hand? She also would not give up one speck of food!

Now...

We cant get her to sit still!!!

And even though she's still a good eater...she doesn't eat non stop!

So, no more days like this for Abbie Girl! Days of just going through the motions

How sad at first, but turned out so beautiful! She is really blossoming! I don't mean she wasn't beautiful all along, I just meant so beautiful how well she is doing.

Wow! She has come a long way in such a short time! What a difference love and stability can make in a little ones's life! I love seeing her smiling face!!!

Hannah said...

isn't it amazing how they just blossom with love :)

I feel attached to Abby, maybe because she shares a similar start as Dmitry. I am SO thankful to the Lord that on this Mothers day...you have all your babies around you (big and small)
