The Princess Turns "3" (Months, that is)

Even though it is 10:00 p.m., here in the states, it is tomorrow in Krygyzstan and our Ellie has just turned three months old -- legally able to go to court now. I spend a lot of time wondering about her and today is no different. At her two month birthday, Kevin took video of Josh and I singing Happy Birthday to her. Today, there will be no one to sing to her. We will also miss the four month birthday singing as well. Our comfort is in knowing that hopefully we will not miss anymore of them.

So, as I sit here, I sing a quiet version of Happy Birthday to Ellie-belly, The Princess and hope that today there is a breeze to cool her sweat, a warm bottle to fill her tummy, someone to hold her and possibly take her for a walk outside, someone to sing to her, someone to change her when she is wet or dirty, a pacifier to soothe her and a moment in her heart where God reminds her that the wait time is drawing shorter and soon -- very, very soon -- her mommy and daddy will be back to get her.

Happy Birthday Ellie-belly. I can't believe it has been a whole month since I watched your family sing to you on your 2nd birthday! Hopefully, your time there will go fast and you will be home soon.
