We are currently looking into finding a sheep to add to our menagerie. We don't want one that needs more than one bottle of milk a day. I'm way past the stage of wanting to get up at night to feed a lamb. I know Felix will really enjoy having a wooly friend. Since we moved to the country, he wants to visit the neighbour's sheep all the time. "Sheep" is a word Felix uses all the time now! We will have to see how the dogs like the introduction of a sheep to the backyard. I really don't want it to have the same fate as the first lot of chickens. It will be a very gradual introduction I think!!
I'm still so excited about the way Felix's speech is coming along. He said Bekah's name the other day, "Kah". He also says "Mel" for Mel and "Oh" for Noah. He has been calling Aaron "Aa". He says "cat" and "bubble" perfectly, and when he sees a photo of a sleeping baby, he says "Awww, baby ee" (asleep) and signs 'asleep'. Little tiny sentences, which are so exciting. After shutting the chicken's gate, Felix signs 'bye chicken'. With his fantastic grasp of signing and the development of his speech, it is getting easier and easier to understand what he is saying to us. I'm so unbelievably proud of him! He tries so hard, and I'm inspired by his perserverance.

As I sit here typing, Felix is sitting next to me, full of giggles. He is playing on his ipad and finding something absolutely hilarious! Listening to him laugh brings me so much joy. I'm looking forward to seeing his little face tomorrow morning when we sing happy birthday and give him his presents. He's too young to understand just how much he has changed our lives, but I hope one day he will know how very precious he is to us, and how thankful we are that he chose us to be his family. Happy 3rd birthday little guy! I can't wait to see what the next year brings.......
To all of our kids, Daniel, Amy, Bekah, Joel, Joshua, Isaiah and Aaron. Thanks for loving this little guy and for accepting him just the way he is. I know you wouldn't change a hair on his head x x x
