We should have seen this coming....


I remember getting this picture over e-mail from her foster mom and thinking "those look like mischievous eyes."  I was right!!  This little diva is going to keep us on our toes the rest of our life.  She is the definition of the "Strong-Willed" child.  She is sassy.  She is funny.  She is mischievous.  She is entering into a new phase....and one that honestly scares us to death but keeps us laughing non-stop.  There is something about the church nursery that brings out her sassy/bully side.  One day she bit a little girl.  Today they informed me that she was trying to push people down....she is a 20 pound bully at church.  Chris said "How could a little girl in a cropped cardigan push people down."  I looked at her in the car and said "Eliana, did you push the little kids in your class today"......and she instantly had the guiltiest look on her face.  It was quite funny but I had to remain serious.  Chris and I are so excited this little sassy diva is ours. 

We love being your parents Eliana....you are the greatest joy!!  Seriously, every minute with you is fun.  We are praying for you every single night.....for so many things!!  We are so proud of all that you are learning and accomplishing.  We are your #1 fans!!   Keep it up little one. 

Love you,
Lindsey (Mama)

Oh I SO know what you mean because I have one of those little ones here! Smaller than all the other kids but doesn't give any of them a break!!!

OH, that is too funny!! She is going to keep you on your toes. It's a Guat-baby thing. Reese pushes kids over too--even ones bigger than him!!

I love your stories Linds...the only thing I wish is that we lived closer so I could be a part of ya'lls lives.
I think Bobbi is right...Guate-babies. Eliot will be talking to Russ and Katie and say "I no tackle Charlie" or "I no hit Toby".
So funny!!!

I love you guys!!!

We too have a 20 lb. sassy guatemalan wonder on our hands who we were told was "personality plus!" We are finding out just what that plus stood for...! But boy are they fun! So glad you are enjoying parenthood, it's the best!
