The Children are GROWING

Well, I often think about posting ... and think about these fantastic and wonderful things I'd like to share. I just don't have the time. Things are too busy to post very frequently. I have been trying to squeeze in more quilting time. I'll post a photo of a baby quilt I just finished in the next couple days.

I was asked for photos - so there are lots in this post.

The children are absolutely a joy to have in our home. We couldn't have asked for a more. And we are so very thankful that God has led us to this point. We could not imagine living life without experiencing life as foster parents. There are so many wonderful and loving children that need a home and care. We are very thankful to be part of it and feel confident this is what God wanted for us.

S. is doing wonderful. Thomas, S. and K. all had the flu about 2 weeks ago. That was pretty hard. I never got it - thank God for the flu shot. But we figured out during that time that maybe S. was allergic to milk. He was having about 6 "dirty" diapers a day since he's been with us. We cut out the milk and he's having about 3 a day that aren't nearly as bad. Plus he's gained another pound and had grown about 1/2 inch. He is learning and doing more each day. He's nearly running around, climbing, tonight he was spinning in circles getting himself dizzy. He's also following directions much better. He is still sleeping through the night, and is just generally fun loving. Tomorrow we visit the geneticist.

K. is growing fast! We haven't weighed her lately, but she is probably right around 14 lbs. She is moving, wriggly, cooing, etc. She is also shaking a rattle. She hasn't turned over yet, but she will turn to her side and get really close to turning over. She is very sweet still, and is quick to smile at you.

I'm attaching lots of photos from the past month. One is of S. dancing. Another of K playing peek-a-boo with Thomas. We also had ice cream recently together at Brusters - S's first time!
