Down With the Bottle

We are DONE with bottles!!! (Well, I guess that's not completely true as Little One is still taking a bedtime bottle for a little while.) - BUT today was his first day with no daytime bottles and he did GREAT! He hasn't cared for the cup much at all, but by afternoon today when he realized he wasn't getting a bottle, he chugged! :)

Little One also had a visit today. She gave him two nice gifts for his birthday: a blue TY whale buddy and a VTECH phone. Unlike many other bms I've dealt with, these were new. My only question to the caseworker when I next see her will be if they were from her or the agency. I want to know only because if they were from her I will definately hold onto them and remind him who they're from as he gets older, should this become a permanent situation. If he does end up going home, then I definately want him to go home with the things she's given to him.

Yea for no bottles! What a big boy!! Yes- find out where the toys came from- I went for a week thinking this cute dress was from Gracie's mom only to find out her CASA worker gave it to her! So do remember to ask. I have had great experience with CASA workers- they are just about the children and will find out everything the caseworkers are afraid to know about bm's :) to keep the child safe. I would not worry about it on your side- You should be fine. Just keep being the great mom you are!!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
