Today I asked Cayden if he wanted to go to church with daddy or stay home with mommy all day long. He thought for a moment and then told me that he wanted to stay home with me. When I asked him why he said because he wanted to be with Story more. He said he doesn't get to be with her much since he's always at school.
How sweet is that? My big boy is compassionate and wants his little sister to love and adore him. I have a feeling it might take a while, but no doubt it will happen. He's a great big brother and I think soon enough Story will see that too!
I just fixed Story's hair in little puffs all over her head. That was a challenge since she has had no nap today (she boycotted) and was out late last night and is just in a bad mood! He looked at her finished do and told me that she finally looked like a little girl! I have no idea what he means, but he reassured me that he loves her new hair do!
Congratulations on getting your sweet girl Story home! I haven’t read your blog in a month and was so happy to see that your were able to get your girl.
How is Amos doing? I am praying so hard for him to come home to his family. How did he do when you had to leave? Will Aaron be able to be the one to bring Amos home when it’s time? That would be so cool for Amos. =) Enough questions, haha
Praying for your family,
Love the hairdo! AA hair is a different ballgame isn’t it? When our daughter Serenity joined our family as a 14 month old foster daughter-(with ADHD no less) I wanted her to be proud of who she was and not look like she had an out-of touch Caucasian mom BUT, I would wind up with some “unusual” hairstyles after chasing her all over the house! 🙂 You’ll get advice from EVERYONE!!! And it seems no two opinions are the same. 🙂 Looks like you are off to a GREAT start. 🙂
Love and blessings,
cant’ wait to be in your shoes <3
