It was a ‘good’ day. {Operation Christmas Child and a Speech Milestone}

National Collection Week 2013 will always have special meaning for me. It was Elizabeth’s first year celebrating with Operation Christmas Child. Adelaide surprised us by saying, “Good!”…all three sounds.

Such beautiful memories and milestones!
