Sweet precious girl.


This little girl of mine. She is so precious. Sure, she has her "moments", but this sweet face trumps any of those "moments".


She's a little sweetheart who LOVES anything and everything regarding Hannah Montana. High School Musical runs a close second. If she had her way. Which she does tend to get quite often ;o). Her entire wardrobe would contain nothing but Hannah wear!


I wish I knew what was going through her mind in this picture. I often sit and just watch her. The wonder that she has in her eyes. Knowing that her mind is always thinking. Wishing I knew.

Her communicating is really progressing this summer. Sure, she uses sign more than words, but I'll take it. She is actually signing and talking in sentences. She is doing so, more and more. I know her mind is as sharp as a tack. For some reason, that no one has been able to figure out. Carly just is not talking as much as she should be. Or, maybe I should say, as much as she is capable.

Just looking at her face, I find comfort. I find patients. I see wonder. I see a sweet precious little girl. I'm so thankful each day for this precious gift that God gave to my family.

I feel your pain. Peanut is not talking much either. But she understands you and she can communicate. Still, you long to hear the words. She is so beautiful. Hopefully one day we will both be writing posts wondering how we can get our little girls to stop talking, if only for a few minutes!

Thanks for visiting DSNM. My answer to your question would be that while Carly is under 18, you are her legal guardians. You can state in your will that Ashleigh automatically become her guardian if you and your husband die. Then, when Carly reaches 18, Ashleigh would petition the court to continue guardianship if Carly still needed it.

But I am not an attorney, so I do not know for sure if this is why you were told no.
