Here’s a video – mostly for those who have, or have had, the last name Popp or Reed – or for anyone who likes watching cute babies. (I’m not biased.) Toward the end Sylvie displays her newest trick – babbling. Brian is extraordinarily proud of this, mostly because her first sound just happened to be dadadada. He swears it’s on purpose. I keep telling him it’s just the easiest sound to make – she’ll make more sophisticated sounds later – like mamama.
Thank you for your ideas and prayers yesterday. I called our worker and told her that we would be happy to have three kiddos this weekend. The more I thought about it, the more I realized I wasn’t trusting God in this. I’ve just been so anxious to get another long term placement that I didn’t want to wait for His timing, and I wasn’t being open to how He was deciding to use us.
So unless we hear otherwise, we’ll be lovin’ on three beautiful girls this weekend (in addition to Sylvie.) ages 2, 4, and 6. That sounds crazy doesn’t it? Yup. Crazy.
