Our growing girl

Hello all,

Chloe is growing up so fast! People hear about development setbacks with adopted children. There are none that we see with Chloe. I will give you some updates.

> She has her first tooth coming in
> She is crawling faster than we expected
> She found the stairs and can crawl up them. Our gates are now in place and she is watched very carefully
> She is drinking from a cup
> She is able to 'cruise' . If that term is unfamiliar ( as it was to me), I am sure you can find the definition on a baby web site.

Chloe still has some dreams that cause her to wake up crying. Actually, she whimpers in her sleep and it wakes her up. Many times, we can get her back to sleep in her crib. But, there are times when she will fall asleep in the rocker and if you try to move her, she grabs on to you and won't let you go. Great attachment! Bad for sleeping sometimes. :)

It is still amazing that we have only been back three weeks. There are times when Daddy is craving Vietnam food! We think back fondly of our trip and are truly amazed that God led us through this journey.

Mommy is enjoying her time at home with Chloe. They are going shopping, swimming, and to the Mom's group at church. It is fantastic for Daddy to drive home and see the two of them playing on the lawn in front of our house.

Let us know if you would like to visit Chloe. She loves visitors!
