November is National Adoption month and the 9th was World Adoption Day. The first one ever! To celebrate, there was a photo op going around of adoptive families taking pics with smiley face drawn on the palm of their hands. I loved seeing all of the pics and if my own sweet girl had not been lovingly tucked into her bed and already snoring away by the time I realized this photo op was trending, we would have been on time. But, as it goes, our pic was a day late. It's still ridiculously adorable though.
I mean who couldn't love this little squishy hand!!
I must tell you I got scolded at first, for writing on my own hand and then a very silly face as she looked back and forth from her hand to mine with smiles faces on them both.
I wasn't even going to try to attempt getting our smiley faced palms AND our faces all in a pictures. That's an insane thought in this house! The girlie loved looking at her hand in her mirror and spent a good 15 minutes 'talking' to the reflection of her smiley hand! (Sorry, no pictures. I was too busy staring at my adorable daughter enjoying her little moment of joy!) I am so blessed that this little girl is a part of my life and I am especially thankful that I get to hold that squishy little hand, every day!
I'm not going into great detail about adoption month in this post, just letting you enjoy a smiley little hand!
I will share something else though....this handsome boy...
who would love for someone to bring him home, so next year, he could have a smiley face on his hand and enjoy the silliness of his smiley faced palm reflecting in a mirror. Don't you want to hold him in your lap and draw a smile on his squishy little palm next November?
