Three becomes five

Since I last wrote, or attempted to write, we have added two more to our little family here in Alabama.

Sadly, my husband's grandparents passed away last summer, and so his mother has come to live with us.

Joyfully, Madelyn Josephine Litton came into the world a few months later. She was born a little early, however, she is perfect!

Her name, I've already written about here, when we were wrongly told that Robbie was a girl. We got too excited to announce and got it wrong. Fast forward 4 years and I'm sitting with Robbie and Madelyn while Robbie "cleans" after "finger" painting. The boy has it all over his body, they are both fierce, wanting to be independent and mostly happy children. That is definitely not all me, I have Robert and Pam to thank for raising the children alongside me.

Robbie is polite, happy and a people person (when he wants to be - like his dad). Madelyn knows her own mind already, we will see how she grows.

I'm back at work in a month. Rolling on 4 years with the same teacher. There are some changes happening in the school system, I am excited to see what this year will hold for our students.
