She Grows!

We got an update from our coordinator today. Little miss Isabel has been going to town on the premie formula we brought over and has gained nearly 1.5 pounds in one month. Can I get a ‘Yee haaa’?! That brought much relief to us here at Casa Izzy.

Another totally sweet thing they told me is regarding the little book of photos we put together that stays with her in her crib. Her caregiver shows her our picture every day and she smiles when she sees it.

Every.
Single.
Time.

I felt myself getting refueled by the news. I literally felt the story give me levity and I could breathe in a way that I haven’t since returning home from Kyrgyzstan. I had been worried that she had forgotton us or much more importantly, she liked us and then was feeling like, “Hey…where’d they go? I was getting used to them” So, that she smiles did a world of good to ease the worry. I am officially going to stop whining now about this wait in between trips. Keep me honest, ok?

    It’s amazing how they grow!! I’m a big believer in the photo albums (and lovies)! Xander still carries his photo album around with him… although Beckett has taken over X’s lovie since B’s was destroyed in the orphanage (washed too often).

    Such good news. And I think if you need to vent or whine about the wait, this is the place to do it. Here’s hoping it goes by fast.
