The youngest 6 Loves

 The youngest children love to play out here if the bugs aren't too bad. They come out first thing in the morning. Eat lunch on the picnic tables. By afternoon its too hot out here. 
Only Julius likes to go in the grass! :o)

 We keep the riding toys in the new "washing" shed. We call it the washing shed because the front half has an ikea kitchenette for washing dishes. The back holds our laundry tubs and washers.

 These 5 boys are the best! I'm so proud of them. They have come so far. They are amazing! They ALL give the best hugs!!
Left to right- Pauly 10, Moses 13, Jacob 13, Noah 15, Julius 11.
Julius is tallest, then Noah who's growth plates have started closing, then Jacob. All 3 wear size 8 boys.

 Pauly with his heart condition is quite short. But a lot taller than he was. Pauly and Moses wear boys size 5.

 Moses has reached 4' with growth hormone. We'll continue the hormone, but aren't sure about it, after a year he only grew 2". But that's more than he did on his own. He loves being taller! :o)
He and Pauly are about the same height.

 Julius is quite tall. He doesn't seem to value his height much, taking it for granted. He liked it when he was smaller and could sneak into things easier! LOL!

 Jacob wishes he were shorter so he could hide away from everyone easier!! Silly kid!

 Noah loves his height! He asserts himself and gets what he wants by moving in on the shorter boys. He is quite moody as a teen, but he is so full of love who can notice teen moodiness! ;o)

 This precious girl will be 11 next month. Oh how we adore her. She's is 5' now. Kids with Sotos tend to be tall. She wears the wrestling ear protectors to mute noise. She hates loud noises and certain vacuums. She easily bosses all of her big brothers around! But Moses gives her a run for her money.
Big sister Faith cut her hair last time. Mercy screamed through the whole thing. She only likes certain people to do certain things. I'm the hair cutter she accepts, altho she still complains about it!

I could not post without including big brother, who helps them all and teaches them responsibility. What an amazing role model!

  1. I love your updates, it's amazing to see your kids as they grow !! I don't know if you heard what happened with our adoption ? Sadly, Sealey, who we were meant to adopt, passed away before we could get to him :( Despite being heartbroken, we carried on with our adoption plans, and yesterday just got back home from our court trip - we'll go back next month for our pick up trip for TWO boys !!! Both have cerebral palsy, both are almost 11 years old, and both are adorable !!! :) https://reecesrainbow.org/121904/sponsorpohl

  4. Love your August post and all your sweet boys. And planted among them, a beautiful sister. Only people who learn to know these lovely special needs children know how special they truly are. We got our 7th special needs boy in November and have now finalized the adoption. I love these kids so much! They bless me every day.
