All day today, Declan talked about Cwist-tull (Crystle, his birth mom). He couldn't figure out why she wasn't coming over that minute. I explained she had to work (why?) and that he needs to nap first (why?) and that mommy needs to cook dinner (why?) and that we'll have to wait but she'll be here soon (why?) Don't you love the inquiring mind of a 3 year old?

We had a great evening of pure Declan entertainment with one liners to die for, dipping and decorating pretzels and gift exchanging. We're so blessed that we get to spend time with Dec's birth mom. It's heart warming to see their relationship bloom.
