Taking Care of Daniel

 I haven't been very good about blogging about our latest arrival, Daniel. He is doing great. He has started to really grow and put on weight. He also is much more energetic than before his heart surgery! The other day he flipped from his back to his front! He is the easiest baby I have ever cared for. If he has a clean diaper and a full belly he is happy!
Me with my newest love!
 When Daniel first arrived the younger girls had some lingering coughs going on. They were not allowed anywhere near him. Ruth finally couldn't handle it any more and put on one of these masks that Melanie left for us! She faithfully wore the mask any time she was around him!
"It's worth wearing the mask to hold him, Mama!"
 All of our kids have enjoyed caring for Daniel. I came upon Clancy taking a moment out to play with him the other day. I thought it was too cute!

 And of course, Paula, likes to get in on the action. We have had to be very strict with her on how and when she can hold him. She has been a good sport about it and doesn't seem to mind obeying the rules, as long as she gets to interact with him!
  We have all been blessed to be able to care for this super special guy!

We still have S. and A. with us as well! They are growing and maturing so much every day. Now that A. is walking she and S. have been playing together even more. This morning they were walking one in front of the other holding onto the jacket of the person in front of them. Super cute!! We are taking them back to Casa Uno the beginning of next month. It is going to be hard to say goodbye...

  1. What a happy BLOG entry!

    Thank you, Father, for hearing our requests regarding Daniel's heart surgery and his healing and growth.

    "...Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me." God is blessing each of your lives as you love and care for these orphans and each other!

    Big hugs all around,
