We celebrated little Q’s gotcha day this last week! We have been so blessed with him in our lives; it’s hard to explain how we feel. Sometimes I feel guilty because I do miss laying around on the weekend watching movies, reading a book without pictures or using my phone or computer whenever I want without someone saying “I do it!” He is absolutely worth it!
D and I were working that day so I wanted to prepare a special dinner. Since he still really likes to eat with his hands, I made finger foods that we all would like. Here’s how we celebrated.
I started making a snack since Q was getting up from his nap not long after I got home. We started with caramel apple nachos with some chocolate chips. The chips were his favorite part, D and I ate the apples and caramel.
Daddy and Q found a movie to put on while I was finishing dinner. Roger Rabbit played while we ate our delicious, yet awkward, dinner.
For dinner we had pigs in a blanket and sausage with pineapple with a sweet chili sauce. Little Q did eat a half of a hot dog before dinner then just wanted the sausage. I think primarily because they had toothpicks in them and he thought he was big stuff. He didn’t technically try the pigs in a blanket, but maybe next time.
Dessert was brownies with marshmallows on top. Q ate some marshmallows off the top, I enjoyed a small piece, and D didn’t have any since the caramel apple nachos were so sweet. It was such a fun night!
The big surprise is our tot got a big boy bed! We also gave him a few adoption books to aid him in understanding how open adoption works and to let him know he can ask us any questions at any time.
Little Q is getting more and more independent and we pray every day we can teach and show him how to be a good person. Our family has been blessed beyond measure and we are so grateful for our gift. Q is loved by so many, near and far, but mostly by his “momom” and “my daddy.”
