I totally missed the four month celebration, but wanted to take a moment to note the day. Five months ago, we arrived home - exhausted and so thankful to be back in familiar surroundings. At least, they were familiar to us. But, it was a whole new world for this little girl. Here is the first picture of her in her new home, coming up the stairs for the first time.
And here is a picture from today. Maia was helping me to make chicken enchiladas for the family of one of my co-workers who is going through chemo and radiation for cancer. She enjoyed helping mom and caring for others is an important trait that Mark and I hope to instill in Maia as she gets older.
And thank you to all of our service men and women as well as their families for the sacrifices that they make to keep us safe today and every day!
