Dan and I have been busy "elving" as Soulemama calls it (I love that!) and I can't wait to post pictures of our evening adventures making gifts. But we aren't quite finished, so that post will have to wait.
I did want to share the heartwarming interaction that I had with Indigo this morning.
Indigo was sitting quietly drawing a picture at the breakfast table. She ran up to me eagerly and said, "Look, Mom, I drew a picture for you. I drew a picture of Evie's mom!"
"You drew a picture of me?" I asked. I knew she had drawn Evie's birth mom based on the curly hair, but I was curious as to what she would say about it.
She said, "No, it's not of you. It's of Evie's first mom. You know - Her mommy in Ethiopia."
Then she drew a purse for her.
I'm so glad that she feels comfortable talking about Evie's first mom and that it's not awkward or taboo. I hope that Evie will always feel that way, too.
