We are so pleased with the way Lilly has adapted to her new world. So many changes in such a short time. Her forever family looks nothing like her birth parents or caregivers. A new language that sounds nothing like the sing song Chinese language, yet she is already repeating so many words and is actually beginning to put 2 words together. New foods so strange to her palate, yet she is loving boiled peanuts, all kind of fruits (today she had her first "Georgia" peach and she ate almost 2 of them, skin and all), watermelons, fresh green beans (thanks, Uncle Bill & Aunt Patsy), fresh squash, celery, fried chicken and beef jerky (just like her brothers and Poppa).
Saturday she spent 4 plus hours with Randy & I while Mom and BaBa went to a wedding. It was our first time for her to help Mammy bake a cake. At first she wasn't sure about the standing in the chair in front of that strange machine. Didn't take her long to get into the adding of ingredients and turning the mixer on & off. We made a banana crumb cake...yummy!

|Taste so good...banana cake!!|
So many more fun times to come. It is so amazing to share "first" things in her life. I feel so honored to have the opportunity to show what an amazing world God has created for her to live in. Later in June, Alaina and Ella will be here for a week. What a treasure to have all 5 granchildren together. Looking forward to making memories...
