Little Reagan showed me something Friday. I get the feeling this will be a regular occurrence throughout her life. I have been up to my eyeballs in baking and as a mentioned my kids have been running around in their pajamas and quite content to watch as much Mickey Mouse as I will allow. Reagan does not share their affinity for Micky however. She is too little to self-entertain and she knew that she was being neglected. I had been rocking her and nursing her and bouncing her and trying to get her to settle down and wondering why my normally content baby is so fussy. And then I sat down with her and kissed her sweet mouth and looked her in the eyes and you know what she did? She giggled!
these sweet children living in institutions face. Day after day with NO contact at all. No hugs. No kisses. No songs. No smiles from someone who cares. No chance to play.
