We have been home 4 weeks now.
The fog has lifted. A little bit.
Here are some thoughts for now......
In those years when the girls were little and I thought that having children close together was pretty much like having twins, I was wrong. Having twins is whole different ball game. They really do have their own language. They really do have a competitive nature. They both have their own personality.
My older girls all love to help. It's a wonderful thing. However, there can be such a thing as too much help.
This mama has only ever known girls. For 15 years. And every single thing Easton does amazes me. Going down the slide head first. Going into the restroom at Target and seeing the handicap bars on the side, jumping up on them and saying, "Mommy, it's time for swinging!" Throwing his ball to try to hit the ceiling fan with it. His little brain never stops trying to figure things out. It's awesome!
Having 6 children is louder than having 4.
Adoption is beautiful, amazing and hard.
