Day 4 Fun

Well, you know, fun until two had blow-out diapers. We had to mop the floor and I needed a new shirt and bedspread after those... (did I mention yesterday that they have a zoo in their stomachs?)

Baby A
Beautiful, mournful eyes, lightest colored hair. Cries pitifully every time she sees me, wanting to be held. Youngest of the three--doesn't walk and appears like she doesn't crawl yet (she scooches on her bottom to get around, mainly to someone who just might hold her!)

Baby E
Makes us laugh the most with her catlike fights and clinging and sounds, especially when she's mad or just wants to be held by someone else more interesting. Reaches out her arms desperately and starts to scream whenever she gets a glimpse of me, so she ends up being with me a lot! Falls asleep sitting up because she protests to be made to lie down.

Baby D
The chubby, big attitude (watch out if you make her mad!), messy hair girl. The least demanding of my personal attention, although relatively speaking, remember...

These are great "BEFORE" pictures, haha. What serious subjects! Baby E can be convinced to smile but not the others. Of course they started off the day fasting for labwork and now the medication for their parasites seems to be irritating things. Baby A was pretty lethargic by tonight. But overall, they are not too bad off for the conditions they lived in. Definitely only the strong survive on the street. But their behavior is something else!! The hitting, slapping, yanking, grabbing toys that they do in between themselves and to the other kids, even babies, is crazy to witness. We'll have to work on that, but...

Looks like one might be leaving. =( Was supposed to be today but the people didn't come. One of these girls has older siblings in another home and she will be taken to live with them. We'll see...

Oh, those dreadful lice

We got the best news ever today for our Rudy!!!! More tomorrow.

What kind of diapers do you guys use, cloth or disposible? I have been making some RRP fitted diapers and some crochetted Woolease and fleece covers that I would be more than willing to send to you guys. I could also send some crochet hats if you guys need them. Let me know what you might need or want and I will send a large package if you except donations from in the US.
