Wonderful Changes

I wish I had time to share all the amazing changes we are seeing in Alexa (much more will come when I have a few extra time - you know in about 10 years!).

There have been many recent moments when she let her guard down.  During those minutes, we see a girl full of caring, silliness, energy, kindness and joy.

We must be quick to enjoy these little treasures - as soon as she realizes she let her guard down, it goes back up.    That is okay, it gives us a wonderfully encouraging glimpse of what is to come.

This was our morning's gem:

Mom:  Adam do you want more sausage?
Adam:  A silent nod
Alexa:  'Adam, you need to say, yes please Mom.'

The queen of unresponsive rudeness is giving Adam advice on how to be kind and polite to Mom?  Go figure!

It is so sweet to see that smile!
