Here’s everything but the furniture! I sure hope it all fits into our two-bedroom apartment … I couldn't help but think of this old song today.
My parents have been a great help. The other day they gave Sarah her early birthday presents, including this doll from Cameroon, whom Sarah immediately named Emilie. I have seen Sarah get excited about new toys before, but not in this way; the look on her face here says it all!
Happy to have both sets of grandparents in her life for a few days, Sarah has shifted into a surprising new mode: self-sufficiency. Yesterday as we packed up the house, Sarah played very quietly with Legos all day long. I checked in with her a couple times: “Are you OK? Are you lonely?” Nope—she was just very occupied, and you can see the results here.
The movers come tomorrow morning; we depart early Thursday morning. Thank you all for your continued prayers and well wishes.
