I just got the most awesome e-mail from P and M! I got a video of my sweet Roo laughing. She has the sweetest little laugh I've ever heard. She is such a happy girl. And I got a great update about how much she's grown and how she's doing, and pictures of her looking adorable as usual.

I so needed this today, and I am so grateful that my Roo has such awesome parents. They didn't have to send me a video. I'm going to see them this weekend. But they did, and I have watched it about sixty times. I could watch it over and over on a loop for the rest of my life, I think. I love to see how delighted Roo is with her daddy. I hope she will be a daddy's girl. She smiles so big for him.

I am having a hard time being coherent or interesting right now. I am just so happy! This is exactly what I needed today. All of my sadness and anxiety from earlier are gone, just like that. Roo is growing like a weed, and she is healthy and happy and she has the most amazing parents in the world. They are such a blessing to me. I'm sure it's not the easiest thing in the world for them to have me blabbing about them and their daughter every day, but they've never complained about it. And I feel like I'm probably a bit needier than a lot of birth mothers are, because I had Roo for so long. But they have been kind and generous and accommodating, and I love them for it. I honestly don't think Roo could possibly have better parents in all the world.

Roo is laughing! It is the sweetest sound in the world. When I heard it, I felt like the Grinch, my heart growing at least four sizes. Roo is happy, so I'm happy. All is right with the world.

Oh little baby laughter is the best medicine, isn't it?? Roo is just so cute! I had the chance to see her last week and our girls got to "hang out" a little bit. I truly am grateful they get to be friends from the start, born just one month and one day apart! I'm excited for you to see her.
