Zoya and Zofia....

Yesterday we put up Zofia's crib in our bedroom to start getting ready for her arrival :) I think nesting mode has hit me, because I'm going crazy trying to organize and get things ready! Zofia will sleep in our room for a bit to help with the bonding process and also help the girls adjust to her without sharing a room....yet :)

Since we put the crib up, Zoya has known something is different. We've been explaining to her and showing her Zofia's pictures, but until the crib went up she didn't seem to grasp it. I would ask her "Who is your sister going to be?" and she would answer "Mila." LOL! She has been trying to say her new sister's name a lot more and this morning said "love you way more know ______" and said her name ;) We tell each other "I love you" and then Zoya says "way way more than you know." So it was cute to hear her say that randomly to her new sister that she hasn't even met yet! Every time we talk about her Zoya's whole face just lights up, I love seeing it! I can't wait to watch Zoya interact with her newest sister! I think Mila is going to LOVE having a sister right around her age....she tends to get bored when it's just her and I and Zoya is at school! She doesn't think practicing physical therapy skills is much fun....I don't know why ;) Here's hoping the three musketeers will be best of friends for life :)

Zoya has been wanting to go in the crib, which is cute. Yesterday both girls were in Zofia's crib and Zoya just thought it was so cool to be in a crib again....silly girl!
Here is my pretty girl before school today hanging out in Zofia's crib! 

Thank you so much to those of you who donated to our FSP in exchange for a magnet! I will be sending out the first batch within the next couple of days, so if you donated but didn't leave your address, please make sure you do! Thanks so much for your love and support of our family!! If you still want to donate for a calendar magnet, you can see THAT POST HERE and donate through the chipin in the right-hand side bar! We are $285 toward our $1,000 goal for this magnet fundraiser!


  1. That Zoya just cracks me up lol! Just wanted to let you know I will definitely be donating in November!! Hugs, Lori

  2. Suddenly Zoya looks sooo grown up!!! I guess it's the idea of her having TWO little sisters that makes me think of her as a bigger girl now rather than a toddler!! I can't wait to see all the (way more than you know!) love in your family when Zofia comes home!! I have a t-shirt that says, "You are loved more than you will ever know...by Someone who died to know you." (((BIG HUGS)))!!!

  4. Sarah, I posted a link to your pages to my facebook page, I created for parents. This is NOT my way of exposing my page, but I was hoping you'd stop by and see it one day if you could. I've followed you since the beginning of your adoption of Mila and am thrilled to see got after Zofia. You have honestly opened my eyes to what "true values" are. https://www.facebook.com/LoveMarriageChildrenAndEverythingInBetween that is the link to my page, please don't feel obligated to share or it or anything, I just wanted you to know that I've shared your links.
