when you love some, love some, love someone… (Cue the Kathy Troccoli song from the 80s)
In this case, I’m busy loving someone 2.5 feet tall. I can’t tell you her name or show you a picture, sorry. But trust me, she is absolutely beautiful! On Thursday night we were placed with a little girl. She is so sweet, silly, playful, cuddly and fun. She’s a great eater and a great sleeper. She really could not be more perfect. We’re not sure what the future holds beyond this week (we’ll find out more on Friday) but for now we are savoring every minute with her.
I’ll try to keep up with my blogging this week but no promises. There are more important matters to attend to, if ya know what I mean. And my posts might be a little bit centered around her, because, well, my brain is pretty consumed right now as I was just thrust into the world of being “Mama!” (that’s what little girl has been calling me) for the first time with an almost 1.5 year old, in a very unique way. Thank God for the wonderful support of my family and friends, especially my mom. Jason was out of the country on a short, week-long trip to Scandinavia when I got the call so the first 3.5 days I was on my own. On my own with my mom never more than a phone call or text away, and often with us, too. I’m so glad Jason’s back now and he absolutely loves her and is a huge help! He’s an awesome daddy. I knew he would be.
YAY!!!! Congratulations! Those are some pretty cute feet 😉
Hi! I just came across your blog via Ohdeedoh. I was excited to see Nashville mentioned, and I loved your little one’s room, so I had to read your blog. I am so happy to see you are enjoying parenthood. Congratulations on your new family member!
First of all, I love the song reference. Secondly, she is cute. I hope you guys are having lots of fun together.
Hahaha, yeah that song has been in my head a lot lately.
Wow! So happy for you guys! Love it!
Couldn’t be happier for you guys…
How exciting! She looks and sounds so precious. Praying for you all. 🙂
Congratulations! My cousin went from 0 to 3 kids as soon as she started foster parenting. It was a long road, but her and her husband have now adopted them all (two were siblings, the other a baby). It’s a difficult journey, but they feel very blessed. I hope the same for you.
Ran into your blog through odeedoh. And thought it wonderful! We do foster care in Denver, CO and I love your style, as we have had this type of struggles before in designing rooms (I am getting ready to post our latest room for an infant boy and two year old girl). I hope you are blessed beyond measure through your new venture!
