Two Months

Two months ago today, a plane from Detroit landed in Nashville and I cried as I got off a plane because I was so happy to be home, so happy to see my family and so happy to finally have home a little girl that I had waited for for three years.

It seems like only yesterday and yet it seems like several years since I got off that plane in Nashville. Ellie has made so much progress in two months, and yet I still remind myself frequently, that it has only been a short time for her to adjust fully. So while she is not sleeping "like I want her to", she has made much progress in that area. I suspect until she is sleeping a full 10 hours straight (ha!) I won't consider her sleep successful. *smile* I'm too old to get up 3-5 times a night. I suspect there is going to have to be a prayer vigil in the future for her sleep -- or more importantly, for my sleep. *big smile*

So, Happy Christmas Eve, everyone -- we'll be celebrating for several reasons.

Congrats on hitting your 2 month milestone. I'm sure her sleep will improve in leaps and bounds in the next few months.

I just found your blog, we just brought home our daughter from Russia but her birth family are from Kyrgyzstan so I've been trying to find some Kyrgyz adoption blogs.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday!

Congratulations on being home 2 months! I agree with you - it seems like so much has changed but yet it really hasn't been that long. I can't wait to see how much Ellie thrives and progresses in your loving family.

Merry Christmas to all of you!
