Thanks

to all of you for being so interested and encouraging. I don't think I've ever been point blank told, "Do not blog pictures of your foster children." And I actually did post them for awhile. Till I got a site meter and realized how many people I did not know that were reading. At that point, I felt if safer to not put pictures, particularly close ups or their faces, just so ensure their privacy and their families' privacy. That's also why I use fake names for all the girls. I didn't want anyone to be able to google any name of our family members and pull up my blog. I know you'd love to see a good picture of my new little one. And I'd love nothing more than to show you just how beautiful her eyes are. Oh, those eyes!

But, for now, this will have to suffice. That's my 8 yr. old holding her. Can you tell how little she is? She's a grunter. Like I seriously would call her Miss Piggy for her bloggy name. But somehow, I can't justify that when all the other's are sweet names. She's still so teeny tiny to us. I know she's not at fragile as she seems, but I'm not nearly as laid back with her as I have been with the other babies. It's probably both her size and her preemie status that has my guard up. She did horribly last night!!!! Ack! I'm guessing there is no difference in night and day at the hospital, and so it will take her some time to learn that 1 to 4 is not time to party! ;)

Awww!! I will be the first to say it...LOOK AT ALL THAT HAIR!!!! Hee hee I bet you will hear that 1,000 times!

Sorry you had a rough night...hopefully she will get a routine soon, but whoever knows! I hope for your sake though, she will, you can only live off the adrenaline of a new one for so long before you become a grouchy zombie! LOL

I know there is no shortage of someone to hold her today!

Well, you know.. I know a lady that is always happy to hold a baby and watch numerous other children while mamma gets a good nap. ;)

I'm so excited that you guys got her! When you're up for a quick visit, let me know! My selfish desire to snuggle her is growing by the hour. lol

What a precious little snuggly!! She's IS tiny. And I can tell your daughter is loving every second of cuddling her, too.

Hope she sleeps well for you tonight.

I love her! If you don't have her new "name" picked yet, can you call her Hope or Promise? Just an idea...hee hee.
What a doll baby, and what a privilage to care for her.
Have fun, and throw in some cuddles for those who only wish we could hold her!
