Hey sweet friends!
We have been home since Saturday afternoon, and I am still trying to get my bearings. :)
But I wanted to stop in and introduce you to our daughter, Sania Louise Hutcherson!
Her first name is her birth name, Sanija, but we took the ‘j’ out. Her name sounds like “Su-nee-a.” (It’s like you mush Sun and Sophia together.)
Her middle name is a family name. Cy’s grandmother’s first name was Louise, and his mom and sister’s middle names are Louise.
Louise means warrior. And our little girl is a fighter for sure. In her short nine years of life, she has had to fight against the rough start she was given. She is strong and fierce. Sometimes her fighting spirit can get her in trouble, but directed in the right way, this girl is going to move mountains!
The boys are ecstatic to have her home! She is soooo spoiled by them.
We have a “new normal” around the house. I can definitely feel the difference in having one more child in the family. Sania Louise has developmental and emotional delays because of her rough start to life, so it is a little bit more like have a new toddler in the house. :)
She is doing GREAT at learning English. We are amazed at how quickly she learns. She is so smart!
Right now we are just settling in and trying to get into a routine around here. Each day we see improvements in her behavior. She is starting to understand this “family thing” and is definitely a daddy’s girl. Did I mention that she already has Cy wrapped?! I mean, like BIG TIME! She adores him, and he adores her.
I’m planning on sharing more in a future post with you, but right now, I am so swamped with our “new normal” AND planning out the final details Haven which is in three weeks!! (It’s the big blog conference that I help put on each year in Atlanta.)
The BEST way to keep up with our family happenings is on Snapchat. If you do not follow me there, please do. Just search for “Beneath My Heart.” I share photos and videos throughout the day of our family.
Have a wonderful week!!
