A Cheerful Heart is a Good Medicine, by Stefan

Tuesday morning started early and after we all woke up we ended up in Grandma Judy and Jordan's room.  While Grandma and Joy were taking showers and getting ready, Jordan and I were playing with Taylor.  We had a couple of stackable toys from Burger King and before you know it we were tossing things back and forth on the bed.  One of Taylor's tosses was strong and hard and it flew off the bed.  She let out a big laugh and it was a major break through in making a connection with Taylor.  So although I encouraged her to throw some toys, the main benefit to connect with her in my eyes was more important.

It is amazing how cheerful she is and interested making us laugh or to have us make her laugh.  The walls are falling down and her little personality is starting to shine through.  Taylor is very bright and has a lot going on in that little head.  We are very blessed with the little girl that He selected for our family.

Here are a few pictures from Tuesday morning when we were playing.

Beware, look for temper tantrums to start right about the time you get to Guangzhou! And, hey!!! eat some real Chinese food while you're over there!!! It really is very good! and sooo cheap!
