Three months!

I cannot believe we have had Sabrina home with us for three months! I mailed our first post placement report today. So nice to actually check something off the to-do list. I must admit I have been struggling a little the last few days. First, Scott was out of town (with Jake). Second, things are still pretty middle school angst with Noelle. No details, or I am sure she will never speak to me again, right Noelle? Third, I know there are much older moms of toddlers or supposed to be toddlers but...my 42 year old body gets really tired some days. I am not sure if it will be better or worse when she can walk. Speaking of which, I am pursuing physical therapy for Sabrina to make sure that we are doing all that we can to help increase the strength in her legs. I had a little pity party on Sunday thinking about the old days of being able to do what I wanted, when I wanted. Missing actually being able to complete a task without having to clean up another mess that happened while I was trying to do the first task. Then I thought how silly all these things were compared to that little girl and her amazing smile. Some days I wonder if she would make me more tired if she weren't so darn cute!!

Happy 20 months, Sabrina!

Yaay Sabrina! 20 mths!! Hey Diane we are the same age and I know what you mean! I feel like an old woman running around after Yohannes who is 22mths old. I have energy but not like I used to. Still, those youngun's might have the energy but they don't know what "we" know. lol
hang in there!
Ooh and I nominated you for an award.

I've been reading your blog for awhile... I'm going to be right in your shoes! My kids are all teenagers and we're adopting 4.5 year old twins from Ethiopia. I'll be 46 in June, eek. And while I'm going to miss the freedom I have now, I honestly can't wait to be tied down by preschoolers. Hang in there! Oh, and by the way, the middle school girl angst gets a lot better even when it seems interminable. :)
