Hanging Out

My mother knit this sweater for her. It was hot that day so I couldn't keep it on her, but she kept running her hand up and down the soft sleeve =)

She is learning to walk. She loves it and claps whenever she stands and bounces.

Making New Friends

Alyssa made friends with the baby next door today. Then when her friend started to cry she knew just what to do!

I met the nicest man in the South Portland USCIS office via email today. I had been writing to the wrong office, but once I mailed a plea to the correct office, this gentleman wrote back and said he would go and look for my app. and work on it today. I of course ran outside and did my "happy dance". Several emails later he wrote to inform me that I had met the guidlines and would be receiving my approval in the mail!!! He certainly didn't need to work on mine today. I am sure he had a pile of paperwork sitting on his desk, what a nice guy! So, it is now time to get my visa, then my plane ticket and then off to meet and love all over Alyssa =) YAY!
