Tengo Dos Años

IMG_5379_2

I can’t believe it!  Another year has flown by, and our baby girl is 2 years old today!  Theresa Marie is a bundle of joy.  This has been a big year for our family and Theresa has adjusted to 4 new houses, a new baby sister, a new community, having playmates her age, a new country and a new language very well.  I often hear her singing quietly “Gracias Senor…Gracias Senor…” from the song Demos Gracias al Senor (We Give Thanks to the Lord) and as soon as she hears Alabare, she throws her praise hands in the air and starts swinging them!

Our happy girl is learning how to be a big helper.  She helps mommy hang clothes on the line by handing me the clothespins.  She is very concerned about her little sister, especially if she hears her crying, and she asks to hold Magdalena pretty much every day repeating her name…well, almost her name, “Leena, Leena, Leena…hold her!!” about 25 times until we let her hold her.

First Day of School

Her motherly instincts are definitely coming out.  We see her wrap up her baby doll in her blankie throughout the day, and she sometimes even bounces the baby to help it go to sleep.  We are currently in Guadalajara, Mexico for a month of language school and she has been going to a little Montessori school in the mornings for the past 3 days.  When I picked her up from school today I asked her teacher how she was doing, if she was behaving herself and how she was getting along with the other kids.  Her teacher said she was doing well, that she would cry every once in a while but not for long and that she especially liked to help the littlest kids at the school.  She said she sees her wiping their faces and hands!

We are so blessed by our big little girl! Happy Birthday Theresa Marie!

Here are some fun highlights from the last year!
