Exciting Christmas Gift

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Santa is bringing a bundle of joy to my parents house this Christmas. She is arriving tomorrow. My parents are foster parents and they take in children from infant to 4 years. The past few months my parents have taken a break with my sister having her baby and the wedding. My parents have been taking in children since I was 3, so we love when they are getting a new kid.

The Baby is a girl, she is 6 months, her name is Sierra and she has a head of blonde hair. I cannot wait to see her. She will be coming to my house this weekend with my mom. So this is the baby's first Christmas and so we are going to get her special things for her. Kids make Christmas so much more fun at our house, we miss them when there are none.

I am just soo excited!!!!

Those little ones are so lucky to have you guys. There is nothing like looking at the Xmas tree holding a little one and watching their faces when the lights go on. It sounds like you and your family are going to give her the best present any child can have, a warm and loving home with lots of hugs and kisses.

What helps right now, is our niece is 8 months so there will be clothes on hand for the first few days until my mom gets a chance to get to the store and get her some things of her own after the holidays.

I am so happy not only for you and your parents but for Sierra, she is quite a luccky little girl. I think your parents are wonderful people for doing foster care.... most people aren't capable of taking in a small child caring for it, loving it then being able to let go when its time for the child to go back to their parents. I think thats the hardest thing of all... the letting go, never knowing if the child is healthy or happy.

Well my mom has brought her home. There was a mistake made, her name is Sabrina. My mom says she is very cute and she keeps smiling when you talk to her.

Aww, that's so sweet :)

What a wonderful Christmas gift for your family Amanda!

Here she is!!!! She is such a good baby. Very pleasant and always smiling and laughing. She can crawl all over and is starting to pull herself up so she can stand when next to things. She was in and out of our car all day shopping and making the trek to my house, she never whimpered, just kept laughing. She always smiles when you talk to her :)

She enjoyed the wrapping paper and boxes more than the toys when we did the gift exchange...my sisters and I spoiled her :P

Plus, my sister tammy's baby, Silvia is 1 month older so it is a nice playmate for her.

    I am celiac and eat gluten-free, DF, SF and sunflower free because I'm highly reactive to all 4. I discovered about a year and a half ago that I would have severe and immediate GI reactions, similar to as if I ate dairy, to anything with sunflower/safflower products in it, but I think that's when using the oil became more prevalent too. Strange because I loved sunflower seeds as a kid. I've also linked it to places I've eaten out where everything was fine and then discovered they started using s
    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues. I made an apt with a GI doctor to just get my blood work checked everything came back great except the Ema it was 1:20 he said it was strange because all the other Celiac panel test were negative my Ttg and the genetic screening even. So I made an apt with another doctor for second opinion she stated that
Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
