it's definitely love

I had the girls all to myself today - it was amazing! Rosie really opened up to me today. They both called me mom all day! At one point Maggie asked when daddy was coming home. It's insane how good it felt to hear them call us by those names. I thought it would take months. They must know how much we love them. Tonight's the last night we have to sleep in separate houses - thank God!

I took them to the park, to meet Aunt Ali, to see the pool, and showed Rosie the outside of her new school. They like it here. They like all the walking paths and lakes. Tomorrow I have to take Rosie to get some uniforms, shoes and a backpack. We had a wonderful day! Riley is such a good big sister. She helped paint their nails and blow bubbles. She and Rosie played Barbies for quite a while too. This is the life i've always dreamed of!!

My girls - minus Riley, she was at school.

time alone

We got to spend the day with the girls at our house yesterday. I had them alone for 2 hours, which was wonderful! When they walked in the door, Maggie ran to the backdoor to see the dogs and Rosie (who wants to change her name RIGHT NOW) looked around and said "I like it." We spent the first 30 mins outside with the dogs, then came in because they wanted to watch Spongebob, because they aren't allowed to with their foster parents. Me being the rebel that I am, allows Spongebob :) Maggie kept sitting in my lap and loving on me. Rosie is still feeling us out. With her being older, it's probably going to take some more time before she opens up, but we'll be here when she's ready. Riley was in heaven, she loves being a big sister! She helped them at dinner and played with Rosie a lot, which should help Rosie come around. I'm already madly in love with these little girls and can't wait for them to feel the same about us!
She fell in love with Bubba, but who doesn't ?

Maggie and her mouth full of gum. 

Maggie took a pic of her eye.

Watching Spongebob. Maggie wanted to put on some of her new pj's. Daisy is busy watching the chips on the table.

She loves to dress up!

Still watching  Spongebob!
