True Love: The feeling when you first look in your child's eyes, the tiny little hand gripping your finger, and you can't imagine your life without him or her.

Pool Time!

Is there anything in the world better than baby toes?! I just want to gobble them up!!

We hit about 90 degrees today, so daddy hauled out the baby pool! Xandra loves splashing around in it (though for some reason she does not enjoy an actual pool ???), and given Milo's total enjoyment of the bath we figured he'd love it too. We were right! It did take him a bit to understand what the heck was going on. And he didn't really enjoy the floaty we put on him. I eventually got in the pool with the kids so I could hold onto him without the floaty on. That's when he really started having fun! He put his face into the water by himself at least 10 times! (Xandra still won't do that.) Needless to say, we had an awesome time!!

I can't believe we have actually had Milo in our family for 3 full weeks. There are obviously still things that we're discovering about him (such as how exactly to calm him down - the orphanage said to give him candies...), but we're over the moon in love. This little boy was destined to be in our family, part of our lives. I'm not a hugely religious person, but I know some higher power intervened in our lives to help place this specific child with us, and I'm so thankful for it!!

  1. Too funny! Charlie loves to put his face in the water too! AND the orphanage also told us to calm him down with a snack...

    You better believe the Good Lord put Mr. Milo just where he belongs. There are no accidents:)
