"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

On the move

Little mama has decided it's time to move.

She started this last week, but has gained some coordination since.

I think we can officially call it a crawl now. It really started out with her lifting her right leg and hiney like she's trying to stand up. Now it resembles more of a typical crawl.

My brother-in-law David kindly pointed out that with all the movement and effort you'd think she would shoot across the room because she's bitty. It's kind of rickety, if that's even a word!

It is so cute and sweet since she is so teeny and she usually makes noises, like grunting.

Wish I had a video, but leaving her on the floor with 2 boys bustling around while I am videoing hasn't proved safe at this point.

Yesterday, we were eating popcorn and watching a movie when she decided to crawl over my legs to get Cooper's popcorn. The boys thought it was a hoot. They kept moving it away saying, "No sissy, you don't have any teeth yet!"

They still don't seem annoyed with her even as she is getting to their snacks. We'll see what happens when she takes trains away...that should be interesting!

Just had to share! Oh, and I should have explained in the post below that Cooper and Owen went to the Science Museum with Blake and painted their faces! Here's Owen's painting!

Hi!, I just stumbled across your blog and your Promote Oklahoma Adoption blog. I just want to say thank you for sharing your story about Cooper. My story is very different but your words are helping me through a difficult time. 3 1/2 years ago my niece and nephew were placed in DHS custody. My husband and I have raised them since then. My nephew was 3 and my niece was 1 they are now 6 and 4 and they will be going back to live with their mom in May. There are many details as is always the case but the living situation is not what we had hoped for but I know that Jesus can protect them even if I am not there. Thanks for sharing your story.
