Five Beautiful Noodles
I spend most of my time posting about our adoption journey and the ups and downs we face every day. Please let me write a post about my five wonderful biological daughters who are my inspiration and my heart.
Morgan is beautiful, intelligent and independent. She owns her own home and is planning her wedding (yes, wedding) coming up this June. We invited her to go to dinner with us last weekend at a pizza joint and she said, "Yes. Only you cannot talk about the adoption! I am planning a wedding you know!" This made me take a step back and share in her moment.
Alex is my feisty, gorgeous senior in high school. She absolutely hates school! She has a temper and is very emotional as well! She is graduating this year. She is also the most tenderhearted girl and loves her little sisters to death. I have to make an effort to keep up with her high profile life.
Avery is the self proclaimed "big sister" of the youngest three. She is so smart and is the spitting image of her father. She makes up new names for herself because she is tired of the name "Avery!" And I mean original names! Jalayla is her latest! She also loves her Grandma.
Kennedy is a cute and goofy little sweetie. She has her own language that even we do not understand sometimes. She is not afraid to turn on the tears if she needs to do so! She always says, "I sorry Momma, I sorry Avvry." She loves toughing and cuddling.
Miss McKinley is a mess! She has been so quick to learn everything early because she has two sisters to watch and learn from. She prefers to learn to stand - crawling is just a waste of time! She has had the hardest time of any of my children with teething. She loves her sisters and her Daddy who calls her, "Junior" to my disdain!
These are the lights of my life! They are part of the reason that we are adopting. We love them so much and are so proud of everything little thing they accomplish. Thank you for being the best daughters a mother could ever ask for! We love you all so much and cannot wait to see what you will become and what you will accomplish!
