A little over a year ago we reunited Baby Dee with her bio mom.  I cried for 2 days.  Her mom remained in contact with us, calling with updates or to just chat, sending photos to mark her growth and developmental progress.  She's still tiny but starting to hit her developmental milestones. It's nice.

We've had babies come and go since Baby Dee--4 in fact.  But Baby Dee holds a special place in my heart.

Our first meeting.

So, yesterday, Mama received a call telling her that Baby Dee's mom is in the hospital and that we are listed as the people to call if anything was to happen. 

Would we be able to take Baby Dee?  Well, hell yea!

Mama is on her way this morning to the other side of the State to pick her up.

How will she be?

Is he healthy? What about medical stuff?  When she was with us she had 17 medical professionals following her case.

Is she talking?

Is she walking?

How will Baby Natalie be with her?  Jealous? Aggressive?  Playful?

What about a car seat?  Do we bring ours (hers acatually, from when she was with us before)?

How do we configure the bedrooms to accommodate 2 babies under 2???

What's Baby Dee's schedule like?  Does she sleep thorugh the night?  'Cause right now Natalie sleeps a good 12 hours and we really love that!

How long will she be with us? 

I know all those questions and concerns will be answered and everything will fall into place as if she's always been with us.

Can't wait to see her.

Friday Fragments

Another busy week for us....

Went to the beach last weekend and while Mama cleaned up the aftermath of a leaking pipe in the basement, I took the boys to the ocean.  The water was hypothermia cold but that didn't seem to matter to them.

The Baby enjoyed free reign of the house, keeping an eye on the dogs and sporting my hat.

Then, of course, there was the Tornado that swept though our area.  Thankfully no damage but a different kind of stress. Think I'll stick with snow.

Mama had to bring someone to some appointment every day this week. 

Looking forward to the weekend, spending some down time with Mama.  Maybe on the porch.
