We saw Baby Bug this past weekend.
First of all, thanks for all the lovely well wishes that you all have left me in the comments section of my last post. I appreciate the support! No new news to report. We're still waiting to hear whether or not an appeal is being filed. I'll let you all know when we know.
In other news, we got to spend a good portion of the day with Baby Bug, her mom, and her baby brother yesterday! They met us for breakfast and then we went to a street fair.
Baby Bug is doing great! She's a petite little girl still, but she's growing. Her hair is getting longer and now has a bit of curl to it in the back. I brought her a flower hair clip and used it to hold back her bangs. She's still as beautiful as ever!
It never ceases to amaze me that Baby Bug really seems to remember us, despite the fact that she hasn't lived with us since last August. We don't get to see her as often as I'd like, due to her family schedule and our family schedule but when we do see her, she smiles, willingly comes to us, and gives us hugs and kisses. She still adores Snuggle Bug, which is good because he still adores her, and she laughs and plays with Boo too!
Baby Bug's little brother is doing well also. He's 6 months old now and he's a chunky little guy. He's such a mellow baby and he always smiles at you! Baby Bug doesn't seem all that interested in her baby brother yet, but she's only 16 months old and he isn't all that exciting yet at 6 months old.
Baby Bug's parents are still struggling in their relationship. I'm not sure if they're going to make it, and I worry about what that means for Baby Bug and her brother if they do not. Baby Bug's mom is talking about going back to work, in case things don't work out, and seems determined to put her kids first throughout all of this. We've told her time and time again that we're here to help but so far the only thing she's asked of us is just for a sympathetic ear to help her process her feelings. I know that when we do get together, she's happy for the company. Being a stay-at-home mom has been rather isolating for her.
Well, that's all for now. Have a great day!
