Sink bath's and Amazing Gamma's. I am so thankful for my mom's help she is a true saint and a blessing from above. She has done a tremendous job helping me stay balanced and has really helped in getting our home set up here. From grocery stock ups to every detail. We are really impressed by how well Nadia is eating she had about four meals today as well as 5 six ounce bottles! She really loves baby food and her rice cereal. We miss you all especially Daddy, Gavin talked a lot about Daddy today he gets a little confused about where he is kind of cute he says he wants to go to Gamma's house and thought he was in Toledo once today. I am so thankful for the sense of peace I have here it is really really HARD work but God is blessing me and I am relying on him for strength and guideance about our next steps...Which we have no idea what or how we will proceed. Finding contentment in every situation even when my circumstances are not what I want is my goal here. Being in the present and accepting the blessings I have all around me...

Oh... and I can't believe how long Nadia's hair is getting! I'm sure you'll have a ball playing with it.
