New Kid On The Block

We have a new family member that I would like to introduce you all to. First let me tell you a little backgound.

I got a call Thursday night about two kids whose mom abused them and neglected them. The little girl was almost dead and the boy needed someone to care for him. They were only a few days old. I was asked if I would take them, knowing we would probably lose the girl.

We were eating dinner and I scrambled to get some formula and a bottle with the right size nipple and get things ready for the little ones to sleep in.

This was exciting for me, yet scary since they were not in the greatest of shape. I knew that Scout would love it when she came the next day. (Scout is the 16 month old.. oops, almost 17 month old now) granddaughter I care for and you can see her sleepy but not wanting to nap, here:

Scout can make a lot of messes as you can see in this next picture:

What would one more kid do?

My baby arrived and the little girl did not make it. The little boy, however, was full of energy and starving. He was very tiny though. We got a playpen and put him in the corner of the living room. The next day he was ready to go!

Here he is playing with Scout:


Isn’t he the cutest kid you ever saw?

For more meet and greet of kids and humans got to the Natural Mommy.
