An Important Milestone

I don't have time to write a long blog post tonight, but I did not want to let this go un-noted:

For the first time ever, today Hallie went up to another little girl at school and, unprompted, asked her to come play. I am not sure who Stella (the little girl who warranted this advance) but I am pretty darned sure that she is pretty special. Flora, Hallie's aide, was brimming with joy when she informed Nadia of this. And so are we.

Hallie has become very chatty at home and has been initiating play with Lea; her cousins Hannah and Adam; and her friends Taylor and Alex for some time. But now she's exporting her new-found skills as a communicator to the kids at school. I know that they are going to find Hallie's bubbly and silly personality as compelling as we do.

As one who loves Hallie's personality, this is big news.

And Stella must have a gorgeous personality too. Or at least not an overpowering one.
