Wow! It's been quite a while since I've posted! Well, we've been very busy these past two weeks! The kiddos got home and have been doing wonderfully. I couldn't have asked for a better transition. They've slept through the night, are eating well, and are more and more calling us Mommy and Daddy. Jon is now potty trained (hip hip hooray!), Destiny is figuring out what we are all about, and Staci is giggling more and more each day. We've had birthday parties, a welcome home party, have gone horseback riding (yesterday!) and are having the time of our lives. I cry every day (usually because I'm happy, sometimes because I'm so darn tired!) and I'm loving our new lives. Bobby has just become the most wonderful Dad. He didn't even skip a beat in transitioning. (green eyed over here) He loves our kids with everything that he is and they know it. There was never any doubt in my mind that he would be a good dad, but WOW! He even spent an entire week watching over them while I was at work and did great! Of course Staci's hair was hardened and sticking straight up with all that food stuck in her hair, but hey! She'd been fed! I'm just counting down the weeks until we can sign our adoption paper work with LSSS. Two down....okay so five and a half months left, but no biggie!
So, I'm so tired my hair hurts, I cry a lot, I'm really having to learn how to be a mommy to three really quickly (lots of stress there).....and I'm loving every minute of it. Being a mom is hard and I can't help but think God's upstairs right now giggling his tush off...after all, I did pray for children! Okay...now I know. I know what was meant to be and what wasn't. I know why we waited so long. I know.
