Sleepy thoughts about J's sister

Judah likes to talk when he's just about to fall asleep. Ok, to be fair, he ALWAYS likes to talk. Once he talked in the car all the way from LA to Colorado Springs. I have witnesses.

I often want to write down his very important, half-asleep chatter. Tonight I did.

"A is coming to America. She's coming to California. She's going with me to the park, to the zoo, to Papa's house. She's going with me to Old McDonald's. She's my best friend. She doesn't talk though. A's not a baby though, mommy. She's going with me everywhere. It's time to go to sleep now mommy. Stop moving. Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite."

A few days after we received our referral for A, we went camping. There were a billion ladybugs at our campsite. We already knew we were the luckiest people on earth, but they were a friendly reminder.

I actually expected a court date last week. Expected? Yes. Silly me. So I was disappointed and even had a pity-us-hour. Horrible, I know. Really, pity? Pathetic.

We did get a sweet, sweet update. I love every single word of it.
I don't want to share too much, but "peacemaker" and "kind in how she treats other children" were some of my favorite parts.

The ladybug dress I made for A this week.
