Quick Update

We still have our precious foster son, JJ. We thought he'd be leaving us fairly soon, but it appears as though he may be here for some time. We are fine with that because we lurve him to pieces. It has been hard to see him just totally melding into our routines and becoming part of our crew knowing that he will not stay with us permanently. DHS' plan has never been for him to stay with us long term, but not many things happen quickly when it comes to foster care. Wish I could post a pic of his cuteness.

Vivian and Brooklyn are as busy as ever. They love JJ, preschool, and pink. Some funny quotes: one of the Valentine's given to us from Brooklyn said, "I love my mommy and daddy because they let me have candy." Seriously? Is candy her love language? Vivian's Valentine said, "I love my mommy and daddy because they are special." Oh. My heart. Melted. Vivian will lean over to me and say, "I love you very much. You are special, Mommy." Brooklyn has begun talking out the side of her mouth and it is HI-larious.

Gramm has transitioned into the most eager to please, loving, happy, but still rough and tumble boy. I honestly never thought we would get here. He is so caring and truly loves other people. He recently told me that he wants to give his allowance away to kids in Haiti who lost their things in the earthquakes. He is my doll baby and told me today that he has had his eye on three girls as potential wives (monogamously, of course). Watch out, people, because he is cute and charming.
