Sorry I’ve been MIA, I have been busy planning Emma’s second birthday party and we moved! So here is a post, Finally!

Emma loves to talk! Most of the time we have no idea what she is saying, but she just jabbers away. She will repeat almost anything she hears. She also loves reading her adoption story. She always points to us and tells us who it is, “That’s daddy! That’s mommy! That’s Emma.” But as much as I tried, she would never say Samantha. Last week at church she was looking at her book and pointing to everyone as usual. I whispered, pointing to Samantha, “That’s Sam.” Emma repeated “Sam”. I never thought that hearing Emma say her birth mom’s name would make me want to cry, but it did! Now every time she sees a picture of Samantha she exclaims, “That’s Sam!” It’s so sweet to hear her as she looks at pictures and tells us, “That’s mommy, that’s Emma, that’s Sam!” She also tells us, “I Emma Sam.”
