And I am not talking about the food!
something amazing happened. We were waiting for our dinner at
McDonald's. (Let me please say this is the FIRST non-Chinese meal we
have eaten since Friday. Everyone needs a little comfort food every now
and then!) ok...so we were waiting for our meal and Micah grabs REID'S
hand and pulls him over to the display of the happy meal toys. Then he
picks her up to look at them. Not a peep from Micah. THEN our food is
ready. I go bring it to the table and Reid picks up Micah and puts her
in his lap to eat, and SHE DOES IT WITHOUT SCREAMING! Wait! Wait! It gets better! Then we go to leave and she let's him hold her all the way down the block. SHE EVEN SMILES!
then asked to be put in the stroller without shrieking or wining, and
then she let's him PUSH THE STROLLER!!!!! Well, we were high fiving like idiots for the
next block and a half! It was like this little light bulb went off in
her head that, "OK...maybe this guy is not so bad after all." People,
let me tell you it was like the skies opened up and God reached down to
give us this little blessing. She still swatted his hand away and
wouldn't let him hold her when we got back to the hotel, but WHO
CARES!?!? There is hope! Yippee!
Thank you for your prayers. We had a great night! We may go to McDonald's every night! (ok...not really!)
