A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. --Forest E. Witcraft

Five Months

It is hard to believe that Precious is five months old already.  She is a happy girl who likes to gurgle, babble, and laugh!  She responds positively to almost anyone who pays attention to her, but especially to Buddy.  He really gets her to belly laugh!

We went to the doctor this week and learned that Precious is 16 lbs 6 oz and 26" long.  She can roll from front to back, so now she really dislikes tummy time!  She is learning to roll from back to front.   She holds her own bottle and will play with small rattles.  Everything, including her toes, goes into her mouth.  Sometimes she will use a pacifier, but usually it's when she is tired.

Here she is completely asleep with her feet in the air.  She slept this way for several minutes before her legs fully relaxed allowing her feet to come down.

Precious is such a joy!  Although she was an unexpected addition to our family, I can't imagine life without her.  The hearing to finish the TPR process on the dad(s) by publication is in two weeks.  Then the case will transfer to adoptions.  Hopefully, it will all be done by the end of the year!
