Sophia has bloomed so much over the last week. She hardly resembles the scared little girl placed in my arms on Nov. 22nd. She is so much more adventurous, sometimes more than mom is comfortable with. As we layed down for a nap today she started beating me up and laughing, really laughing. That isn't something we had heard before and never even a small chuckle unless we had put forth a lot of effort to get it. She is in to everything, just like she should be at her age. Last week so was afraid of everything and now she wants to check things out. She recognizes her American name and seems to understand most of what we tell her. She still doesn't babble or baby talk and I haven't heard the word mama but I know one day she will just start flowing with so much to tell us.
I feel so blessed to be her mama.
