On a roll

    We thought you would enjoy a small video of Adeline rolling over!

    Post-rollover, Adeline gets very angry because she hasn't mastered rolling FROM her stomach to her back. It's cute to watch her rollover, but mommy has to stick pretty close and help her return to her back before she has a fit. In this picture, Adeline is literally screaming into the ground because she is so frustrated. Poor thing.

    Adeline is VERY happy after mommy helps her back to her back!

    Saying Bye (for now)

    Monday, June 12, 2006
      Our dear friends the Langdons are heading back to the states this week. We came to Turkey the same month they did almost two years ago, so it will be hard to say good-bye to part of our "family" here. But, we are excited about what the Lord has in store for them in this next phase of life. Please take a moment to lift them up this week - for their travel, their transition back to American culture, their time with their families and for guidance as to where He wants them next! Adeline and Karis enjoyed hanging out together - cute little girls!

      Going to the pool

      Thursday, June 08, 2006
        Yesterday, we went to the pool with our friends Elizabeth, Bailey and Stacey. The weather was nice, but the water was still very cold, so we just stuck our feet in. We didn't stay very long, but it was nice to get out of the house and enjoy the summer weather for a little while. One funny note about being out in the sun - Adeline's doctor repeatedly said last week to make sure to put sunscreen on her because she is soooo white. Turks are a little darker skinned than Americans, so the doctor was a little amazed at how white Adeline's skin was. Well, we were careful, and Adeline didn't get any sun.

        Adeline doesn't really know what to think of the cold water. The first time she stuck her feet in she cried, but now she is getting used to it.

        Check us out! Thanks, Stacey, for hanging out with us and being our photographer!

        "Boogity, boogity, boogity boys...

          ...let's go racin'!" We have been a little out of the NASCAR loop since we moved to Turkey, but we are training Adeline early! Also note the tongue action, it's cute right now but I keep telling her that one day she is going to get in trouble for sticking her tongue out at me.

          Of course, Adeline is already a Ryan Newman #12 fan - one day she'll be at the track cheering for the Rocketman!

              Aunt Ally loves holding Adeline, and obviously, Adeline feels pretty relaxed! Two precious girls!!!

              My first piece of mail

                Adeline got her first piece of mail today - her SS card! We were pretty exicted about it, we don't think Adeline cared too much, but she did check out the envelope for a little while.
