Whether you have just started following my blog or have been following every post (hi Mom!), I know that it is impossible to remember details of each kiddo that I talk about. Orphanage days are crazy, and I come home exhausted each time. It's hard enough for me to keep track of their names and personalities! So in this post I wanna try something different, to give you a little glimpse of a few of them more closely.
I heard him laugh once last week... it was surprising and wonderful. I pulled out a new toy, called the Sound Machine. You press buttons on it to make different sounds like clapping, laughing, a drumroll, or a whistle. I let them take turns (not as easy as it sounds) pressing the buttons and picking the sounds. The first time Max got to press the button, a little tiny laugh bubbled up out of him. It was the sweetest sound. Without fail, every time he pressed a button, the same little laugh came out.
Looking forward to getting to know this little dude even better over the next couple months. Much love little guy.
Maisy is definitely a favorite among the nannies. This works in her favor for now, as she needs the attention when she cries or fusses. Nevertheless, she still gets fed a bottle of formula in her crib propped up on blankets, rather than getting bottle fed by a physical person. I was able to give her her bottle yesterday, and hope to do that regularly when I am around. Love you little lady Maisy!
I have no doubt Josiah will make waves in this world. My hope for him is that he will use his fire and strength for good, in a community and world that so desperately needs it. Love you buddy.
