Words that melt your heart...

So often people ask how Jenna is adjusting to Dave being around here all the time and I say "good". For the most part it really has been an easy adjustment for all of us. There are certainly times when she's more apt to ask for mom (i.e. bedtime) but any little kid goes through stages of having a favorite and while at bedtime she looks for me when it comes to running around chasing bunnies, "fixing" things, or riding bike really fast she now has a new buddy and I'm chopped liver! I'm thankful that to this point Jenna has always enjoyed going to her dad's house as well and I know they have some pretty fun filled days. It's just a blessing to know that even though her life is "different" she is one loved little girl! Yesterday as I was leaving to bring her to her dad's for the weekend she stopped at the door and turned to walk back to Dave where he was sitting on the couch. She walked up to him and put her arms around his neck for a big hug. She then looked at him and said "I'm going to daddy's house now and I know you will miss me but I will come back, love you." I wanted to cry at how sweet her little words came out. No more affirmation needed that yes, Jenna has adjusted just fine....and so has Dave!

I pray that Ava will adjust as well as Jenna seems to have. Any advice you can give me is welcome. It was so fun on Saturday watching the girls together. We have to get together again soon, Ava can't stop talking about Jenna. :)
