Gibberish from a 21 month old!

video

Ok,
I don't write often but I should because there is so much to tell!

This video is a little older but we thought it was still worth showing! When laying in her bed, she will just talk to herself and even make herself laugh. Eliana is truly hilarious to me. She makes me laugh every day. To say she's sassy is an understatement. Her personality is getting bigger and bigger.

She loves to transfer things from one location to another. Today she was way into helping me move clothes from the washer to the dryer. We moved them one at a time...like one single sock at a time! She's learning how to help out !

I keep telling myself that this will all be gone so soon and I'm trying to be as intentional as I can to enjoy each day for what it is...everyone says it goes by so fast.
Happy Twenty-One Months Eliana, we love you so much!

Grace and Peace,
Chris

PS A big shout out and thank you from Linds for all the great ideas on money making possibilities! Keep those coming if you think of more!

I love it!! She is so adorable. Cameron is talking up a storm but I have to translate a lot. It is so cute when they finally start talking. Even when you hear Mama 50 million times a day.

A good money maker from home is transcription (you take doctors notes off of a digital recording and you type them for patient records.). You can get "certified" fairly quickly and inexpensively online and then get going. They ususally pay by how many documents you transcribe. You can do it during nap times, after she goes to bed, etc.... I saw many people talking about opening a daycare which can be a great thing. I did this after my daughter was born (you need to be certified through the state, you also need to have extra insurance to cover any accidents at home - a regular homeowners policy won't do). Taxes are also a nightmare.... I ended up sticking it out for 2 years and then had to stop. If it is something you want to pursue, please email me and I can give you the good, the bad, and the ugly!!! kirsten131@hotmail.com

HI, I am making stops at all blogs I find with people with adopted children from Guatemala to extend an invitation to visit my blog. I was born and raised in Guatemala, later moved to the US and became a naturalized US citizen. We have one son adopted from Guatemala and two biological born in Guatemala. Having met various people with adopted children from Guatemala I felt I had a gift to give and that was share my heritage. In the blog I am posting all things Guatemalan: recipes, nursery rhymes, places to visit, etc.... If you do stop by and like it, please share, comment and ask for topics.
