Three Word Sunday - Love is Grand!

2nd Picture: Alyzabeth loves to giggle when I tickle her tummy... anything to get her to wake up!!
We enjoyed reading a new book on Puppy dogs (Thank you to Barbara & Patti!); the story is about a brown one, we talk about our white, Salty Dog. I think I was "tasting" this one (OK, I was growling and chewing on the book like a dog... what we won't do for kids!!).

After waking up from a nap, much cuddling is required! Alyzabeth loves to "wake up slowly". I think she does it on purpose in order to have some Mommy and Baby time together. If only we could banished the gremlins that keep our little one up and down throughout her nights... Stealing sleep from us all :) Yawn.........

She is so adorable and loving. She is precious and beautiful. She is soft and sweet. She is both secure and yet insecure. Independent and dependent.
She is Daddy and Mommy's new little Lovey!!

Last picture: Happily playing at her very PINK desk!!

Happy Sunday!

I think those pictures really touch me because it shows what adoption is about: Each child has a special person just for them to be there for them when they wake up and hug them and hold them as they slowly wake up. And for the parent, there is that one child just for you - always meant for you.

My son still need wake up snuggles too. I think it is the best part of the day. And if he dozes back off while we snuggle even better!

I am so happy to see Alyzabeth so happy and doing so well. She is such a little beauty!
