Giver two on Saturday came in the form of a sewer who doesn't know me, but knows about Magdalena. Realizing how much trouble we were having finding dresses, she made Magdalena two dresses. Magdalena will grow into them within the next month if she continues at the rate that she is going at now.
Lastly, my oldest niece, Caroline, was with my mom, her sister and other cousin at Build a Bear in the mall. They were having fun creating their own animals when Magdalena and I showed up after having her picture made. Caroline named her stuffed animal Magdalena Roberts. Then, at the end of the night she wanted her monkey to go home with Magdalena. She said it was the best one that she had ever made, and she wanted Magdalena to have it. I wanted to encourage her giving, but I also didn't want her to go without her monkey (which is her favorite animal). So we decided that the monkey would sleep at our house tonight and she could play with Magdalena and the monkey on Sunday in the car. Also, Caroline had just gotten upset because Magdalena had thrown up. She had said a couple of times that she was sad and she didn't want Magdalena to die. With little success, I tried to explain that all babies throw up, and Magdalena had gotten fed too quickly, and that it was because of this that she threw up. She would be fine for now. But Caroline did not believe me. I didn't want her feelings in this situation cause her to give Magdalena her monkey because she does so many other things for her, like, find plant bulbs in playgrounds!
Noah really had some good study time, but at this point in the semester it is hard to get a lot done in that short amount of time. We were glad to finally get home to him at the end of the day! We are a blessed family to have so many people in our lives who have used their talents to make everything smoother for us! Thanks to all of the many people and for all of the prayers sent up!
Magdalena was such a sweet girl while I pushed her around. Of course, that didn't last too long because she loves to be snuggled by her Mimi!Magdalena and her Mimi returning to the car
