Day 2 in NC consisted of snuggling Daeston ALL DAY LONG. We all took turns, but Kedren BY FAR was the baby hog. It was so cute to see how much the kids adored their baby brother and wanted to be "helpers."
Because of the blizzard, the city shut down so we were stuck inside with the kiddos. We had the most amazing host family and while we stayed inside with the two littles during nap time, they bundled up the big boys and took them outside to play in the snow! They were in HEAVEN! We just couldn't believe that out of all the times we were in NC, that we had to deal with SNOW! I was looking forward to a warm getaway with the family, but that wasn't going to happen;)
I was able to give him his first bath (by me) that night and he was NOT a fan. Of course, once again Kedren had to be right next to him, even in the bath tub. It's these simple moments, even as an adoptive mom, that are so special. Every mom looks forward to the moment they get to bathe their child for the first time, feed them, swaddle them, and have them sleep on their chest. These moments are NO different than those we share with our biological children. I just loved that we were able to share all these "firsts" as a family. Watching how much Kedren adored Daeston made my mama heart melt.
Adoption is not always easy on every family. It's not always easy for every child. However, I'm so grateful that we got to share this journey as a family and grow together. I know that my kids are who they are because of it. They do not see color, they see love.
Hi, I'm Kansas! I wish we could be doing this face to face over coffee. Maybe someday, till then this will have to do!
