4 months

Our little Amelia turned 4 months yesterday. Seriously, where has the time gone?!? In some ways it seems like it was just yesterday that we were in Florida excited about getting her out of the hospital, then anxious to leave and bring her home. Yet, here we are and it is already 4 months later. Yesterday as I was talking to her and she was smiling and kicking and "talking" to me, I realized how much she really has grown. It seems like the tiny newborn stage passes far too quickly. She is such a sweet and happy little baby. She smiles all the time and has the sweetest little grin. And of course, she just gets cuter and cuter every day. As the past 4 months have flown by and I feel like its going so fast that we are surely missing out on something, it makes me think of her birthmother. Just as I woke up Friday thinking it was Amelia's 4 month birthday, I'm sure she thought of that as well. We have been able to watch Amelia grow, cuddle her, cherish her, all because her birthmother was willing to not be able to do those things. And after meeting her, I could see how much she loved Amelia and I'm sure she thinks about her all the time. We have sent her pictures and hopefully she will be in contact with us.
What a precious gift from God we have been given through her!!
