Congrats!!! Congrats!!! Welcome Home!!!!!! Jayden is a doll and all the pups look good. Your going to have a Merry Merry Christmas!! That is so nice
HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS & ENJOY EVERY SECOND!!! They grow so fast!
Here is a picture of our adopted son when we brought him home. He was 4 days old.
With my 17 month old grandson they put a lullaby CD on in his room, I think it sooths him & blocks other household noises. Does he drink a bottle? Try warm milk at night , always seemed to relax mine a little.
Yes, it has been a real joy raising our son Jake. I had 3 sons & couldn't have any more so we adopted. Was supposed to be my girl tehe, but when they said it was a boy I said "oh well, you don't get to choose when you give birth to them. He has been such a good child to raise, a little unusual, he likes antiques, plays accordion, polkas & waltz his favorite, lives to go to Steam Thresher shows will only wear cowboy boots , will go to nursing homes & play music for them etc etc, We always joke that if we believed in reincarnation that he was a farmer from the 1800"s
FWIW they grow up fast enough, and this too will pass before you know it... it will take all of you a while to get your groove on and about the time you figure it out it will change anyway, lol. I'm slowly learning that the perfect age/stage is THIS.MOMENT.RIGHT.NOW, even with lack of sleep and food everywhere and crud ground into the hair and sticky kisses and snotty noses and wailing meltdowns... there's always something in there that can be appreciated, even if it's just sheer twisted irony.
When did I find time? Sheesh, your guess is as good as mine... I sneak out on the weekends and at night when husband is home basically. Last night I got an 8 mile run in and after coming home, feeding, etc. landed in bed just after midnight. Yeah, you'll want a head lamp.
By the way, if you're looking for the ultimate bang-for-buck light wise, I would HIGHLY recommend mounting this LED flashlight on a bike helmet:
This is the cutting edge of LED light technology and this flashlight is one of the first items manufactured with this particular bulb. The high beam is as good or better than my 10w halogen bike light, and it runs on cheap AA batteries. If you want to use rechargables the light will be a little dimmer/shorter lived, but considering the beam it throws I don't think it's a problem. Plus you can always keep a couple spare AAs in your pocket.
This $65 beauty has put $200+ bike light systems to shame. Much to love here for the price!
