Question: What does an 18 month old put in her purse????

Answer: Anything she wants to!!
Miss M. has recently discovered the benefits of carrying a purse. M is all about the purse. It started with Grandma. She bought M. a little purse for her to use while she was at Grandmas. After Grandmas house, M. came home and immediately searched for a purse of her own. We didnt have much to work with but sometimes we as women have to make work what we can find! What she found was a small Paradise Bakery paper sack. For days she has carried this sack around the house putting things in it and taking them out. Oh the joy of being a girl!! Well, I could stand it any longer and had to get her a purse of her own. We found this cute little woven purse (just her size) and of course we had to have it. M. hasnt put that thing down since we got it. She has gathered all sorts of things to put in it from individual coloring book pages, to a spare binkie and of course the all important toothbrush! She didnt want to give up her beloved paper sack either so most of her days are spent with a bag on each arm walking through the house. Her new little bag even made an appearance at church on Sunday. I was walking out the door for church and I called for Miss M. to come so we could go and she came running with purse in hand. Hey, who can blame her? A girls gotta have a purse.

Miss M.'s Birth Mother

Wow, I cant believe summer is half over already. We have been crazy busy doing lots of different activities.
Yesterday we had the privilege of spending some time with Miss M.'s Birth Mother and her parents. We are lucky enough to have an open adoption relationship with Miss M's Birth Mother and we get together every so often. Yesterday we decided it would be fun to go to a movie. People often wonder about our relationship with our Birth Mother. The time we spend together is like spending time with old friends. We talk about life and what is going on with her and her family. She also gets to see the divine Miss M. and hold her and see how big she is growing.
We love her very much and we are thankful for the sacrifice she made for our daughter.
I asked her if it would be okay if I posted some pictures of her and Miss M. and she said yes. So, just in case you were wondering. Here is Miss M. and her Birth Mother.
