This blog chronicles the miracles and struggles of our daughters, Emily and Olivia. Emily was born 15 weeks early and had many complications, but she continues to amaze us! Olivia, born in China with heart complications, is also beating the odds. She joined her forever family (us!) when she was four years old and has been doing wonderfully! UPDATE: We started homeschooling August 2009 :)

Video: chatting on the phone

Playing in the neighbors' back yard.

I overheard Olivia chatting on this toy phone tonight while I was making dinner and was able to capture some of it before I burned it too much. Listen closely and you'll hear some English sprinkled into her conversation. There are some "um"s, "okay?"s, a "nope" and some "no"s mixed in there! She's a quick study and is picking up new words every day.

Can you believe it's been a month since Gotcha Day?! I'm amazed how much we've all attached in such a short amount of time! She is so sweet and lovable that it's still going extremely smoothly. We are so blessed with our two wonderful girls :)

Happy Anniversary of the best day! I was looking at pictures of that blessed day. Just think about how far she has come from the shy little girl to a regular chatty Cathy on the phone. With the love of your family, she will be unstoppable.

All our love,

How precious Olivia is! She seems to have very good "phone manners" too ;-)

This video was SOO cute. I showed Megan your blog when she asked about you, and we watched this together.
