Snuggle-bug

Keith is happy to be home. We went to visit family in OK for 10 days and when we came home - he was all a twitter. For the past 4 days he has crawled up on my lap and snuggled with me, usually for an hour or so. Today he fell asleep and I cherished that special time with him. I can sense that he is growing more and more attached to his mama and looks to me for comfort - I love it.

He was evaluated for his Speech & OT goals and they said that he has exceeded them and has jumped up 15-20 months in his abilities = WOW!

When I first brought the twins home, I spent a lot of time snuggling and rocking the kids before bedtime. I realize that I have been slacking off in this and am trying to get back in the habit. Tonight I sang to each child individually, while rocking them before bed (even Anna). They each LOVED it. I will definitely repeat this action as much as possible. I could feel that wonderful connection of mama to child and the powerful influence it had over each of us. I am so blessed in my life to have these 3 sweet children and a wonderful, considerate husband.

Yes, we are thinking about adopting again. Since we are scheduled the move this fall - we don't think we'll begin the process until we move. Thanks for your encouragement!

Oh wow, I didn't realize they were twins. Somehow I thought that KEITH had a twin in Ukraine who was adopted by another family. Guess I had THAT all backward in my head! LOL

That's so wonderful to hear about Keith. Sounds like being in your family has done wonders for him :)

You know, I've rocked my son and sang to him before bed almost every night since he was born, but lately he's gotten really fidgety and I've been thinking about stopping. Now, I'm not sure that I will--I think I'll keep at it. It's one of my favorite times of the day!

We will pray that all will go well with your move and your possible future adoption!
