Right now at home, Lilly loves to wear our shoes and will say "shoe" until you help her put one on. Also, if she does not like something now, she can definitely say "no!" I think she just likes to say that word. Nina and papa bill came over for hamburgers on Memorial Day. Lilly enjoyed playing with them, and is so glad Nina can hold her again. We also went to a birthday party for Mark Mahlmann who turned one on Sunday. Lilly loved playing with the kids, looking at the turtles, and playing on the playground which was just the right size!
We turned in our adoption scrapbook yesterday - so glad to have that done! We are praying for some little details to work out!

In the Dear Birthmother book, they presented a definition of adoption I had not considered, but totally agree with. "Adoption is the process of accepting the responsibility of raising an individual who has two sets of parents." We are the parents to nuture and help the child grow, while the birthparents gave the child their genes - their eye color and genetic traits. Both of us have love and will love the child forever.
Lilly dressed up in her 1 year pictures outfit today - she looked so cute, so I had to post a few of my favorites. She is saying a few new words - bubble, fish, shoe.
