The Meeting

Somewhere between "Just one more push" and hearing the first cry, you find that a piece of your heart has moved out of your own body and is living in the most perfect little creation of God. Then, if you're lucky enough, that piece of your heart divides again and lives in another example of God's perfect love.

Though I've yet to hold her in my own arms, something nearly as wonderful happened today! Kaity and Khi were allowed a 10 minute meeting to see and hold their niece for the first time.

They were really excited while getting ready to go, but were emotional when they got home. They love Chloe so much. They said the time together felt like the blink of an eye.

We went shopping this evening. I'm planning to crochet the bag for holding yarn in the latest Spin Off, out of handspun silk. I didn't have the correct size crochet hook, so we went to Hobby Lobby. In the same shopping center, a Petland was having it's opening day. To cheer the littles up, Benny and I decided to take them in for a look around. We left home to buy a 99 cent crochet hook and came home with a 99 dollar cockatiel.

Yep, it's been a good day.

Oh...a blink of an eye. Such expressiveness. Did you hold her too?

I love the look on Kaity's and Khi's faces. What wonderful children we have. As always, I hope that you will soon be able to hold Chloe yourself.

Something is going on between them. You don't usually see a baby still sleeping while being held by another child that young. They don't "usually" feel that secure...Hmmmm...Can you say "bonding"...They are all beautiful and special (as is their Mom/Grandmother). :) Hugs...

That picture is priceless. Absolutely priceless. Talk about proud littles. They have bonded.
And then tonight!!!! Wow. Things are starting to break your way. About time. I am so happy and excited for you.
Maybe Joan and Ernest T will finally come to their senses and act like loving parents and grandparents. They certainly have it down deep in them some place
