Sunny Goes to the Farm

This morning Nikita and I took Sunny up to do farm chores with us. I have no reason to believe Sunny has ever been up close to a cow before, but she had no fear. She smiled and waved to L, then went right over to pat the cows on the noses. It is a good thing there were stanchions separating them, because Sunny gave no thought to the several hundred pound weight difference between her and the bovines!
Sunny also pitched right in with bottle feeding the calves. She saw Nikita single-handedly feeding two of the calves, and went over to pick up Holly's bottle. Nik took a picture of Sunny feeding Holly while I feed Stanley.

Amelia was not too pleased that Sunny was going to the farm without her, but Ame had speech this morning and could not do both. I will probably take Amelia to the farm on Friday to make up for it.


The other night, Amelia took out a Hooked on Phonics workbook, and was pointing to and sounding out letters for Sunny. Surprisingly, Sunny echoed her each time! She really has made very few attempts to speak, but her comprehension is clearly growing. I was thrilled that Amelia had taken it upon herself to teach Sunny the alphabet, and that Sunny was a happy pupil.

I continue to be amazed at what a perfect fit Sunny is for this family. God is faithful, God is good.
