Bringing Dariya home: She said it!

Totally by accident but, I will take it.   Dariya said, "Mommy, beep beep" today.  Go ahead write down the date for her baby book!

We were walking close to the front gate and a car was going by.  She stumbled, fell over and skinned her knees up .  No blood this time but, by her cries you would have thought a bone was sticking out.  She was crying so hard and muttering "mmmm" and then she saw the car and forgot all about her knees and that is when the magical phrase just popped out.  Plain as day!  Oh how I wish we caught that on video.


They had her in one of Alayna's 12 month dresses again, it was my neices before Alayna so now 4 girls have worn it.  LOL
Oh and we are doing nothing to dispel the myth that all kids with ds are happy all the time.  This girl is pretty happy go lucky!  LOL

Enjoying our time with her, but wishing we could take her home and be playing with all 3 kids at the same time. 
This is how she greets us daily. Arms open wide, smiles, giggles and hugs on contact!  Pure joy!!!

We ventured to one of the sandboxes today.  She enjoyed playing in it and only tried to taste it a few times.
Praying that tonight (afternoon in the US) we hear good news from our facilitator about court being this week!  We will update as soon as we hear.  Thank you SO much for all the prayers!!!

I am so enjoying reading all the updates!!! What a blessing and what a sweet, sweet little girl you have to take home with you! I can't wait to meet her in person. Just a taste of home...Alayna and Isaac sat together in the slide tower today at IDC during PT time and took turns throwing suction cup balls down the slide. It was super cute! She seems to be doing great with grandma and grandma doesn't look too worn out yet!!! Praying for you all!
