Another busy week over here. After traveling, it always feels like I'm playing catch-up. While I try not to spend too much time on the weekends doing work around the house, inevitably when I don't have a weekend, there is more work during the week. Such is life! :)
We had a lovely visit with Caleb's birth mother. Really, the day couldn't have gone any better! It was such a joy to see her and to see how much she loves C still. DH & I were definitely both nervous heading into it, as it had been a year, and we've had almost no contact since then, other than the letters and photos we sent. But despite that, I still love open adoption. As I wrote in this post, I do hope we continue to keep in touch, even if it is infrequent. Maybe we'll have more contact now that we've exchanged emails. Only time will tell.
DH & I thank you all for your prayers for our visit! I'm sure that things went smoothly in part based on your prayers!! :)
Other than the visit, we're settling into summer over here. I LOVE having our local farmer's market back - we had to travel a bit more for one during the winter and DH & I would go on Saturdays with C. We tried to limit it to once a month - we were the ones buying 10-12 dozen eggs, haha - but we always seemed to pick the coldest weekends to go! Now that summer is here, the Thursday one I like better is back open, and C and I go in the mornings before his nap. I'm trying to buy almost all our food there - we've had delicious squash, potatoes, blueberries, strawberries, asparagus and of course a lot of meat and eggs. :) Yesterday, I was washing up the strawberries and blueberries and C was walking around the kitchen, occasionally getting samples of blueberries. At one point I looked over and he was munching on the green stem of an onion! City girl here - I never knew that onions had those green stalks attached to them. I pulled off the one C munched on and sliced up a bunch of the rest for our eggs in the morning. As I tried to fasten the container (holding C in one arm as he didn't want to be put down), I dropped it. Slices of onion went everywhere, and he dove right in to help me pick them up by eating them. I grabbed several of them out of his hand, but he got another one in his mouth and was running out of the kitchen so I couldn't take the last one. As he was running, I heard him happily crunching with his teeth. :) Onions and blueberries... what a combination!
Happy Friday everyone! :)
