Happy National Adoption Day!

I can't believe tomorrow Esther will have been with us 11 months! It doesn't seem that long, and yet it seems she's always been a part of our life. Only one more month until our one year "Esther Day" anniversary.
She's picking up and trying new words all the time now. Gene and I are understanding her more and more, though most of the time we have no idea what she's trying to tell us. When she signs now, she says the word with the sign. At night before she goes to sleep we hear her practicing her words. So cute!

Her smile is awesome in this picture but you should have heard her laughing!

Balancing between the coffee table and couch looks so comfy!
