For those of you who don't already know our big news... I am deeeeelighted to tell you that our little family of 11 (that's counting all animals, of course) is now a family of 14!! That's FOURTEEN.
Yesterday we welcomed a new son into our family!!! Malachi (isn't that just the most fabulous name?) is 9-years-old and came to us from another city here in Texas. We were looking for another son to love and he was looking for a family to love so.. here we are! I am not allowed to show his picture on a public forum YET (good law, just soooo tempting), but, since this is a home and garden blog, I feel compelled to show the sweetest little boys' room you ever did see...
Doesn't that just melt your heart? Oh honey, I tell you my heart is melting left and right and over and under all day!I suppose I'll be posting less, if that's possible, but two little boys need a LOT of mama-ing. I'm so grateful I am just the mama for the job!
I have noticed that one of these sweet things seems to love the garden so my fingers are crossed just a teensy, little bit that I'll have a cohort in crime.(FinnigantheCurious is way over my gardening obsession, poor thing.)
OH! What about the 14? Shoot, now, I almost forgot to tell you about Melanie and Velma. They are 2 adorable little dwarf hamsters that now live with us. Malachi had always wanted some and who are we to say no to more animals!? Well, Jackdaddy is one to say no, but he's too big a sweetheart to really say no. They're sleeping right now (oh, to have a nap myself), but photos soon! Actually, I'm sure you'll be inundated at some point with more pictures of everyone and everything than you could possibly bear, but you know how us new mamas are!
