Super Velcro Baby !

I think all the Christmas traveling and festivities has upset Maggie big time.  Her schedule has been disrupted and she has taken a step backward into the Velcro Baby phase.  She was doing so good before December and I was seeing a big improvement in her clinging to me.  But, she is back to her " I want Mommy all the time, won't let me put her down and have to see Mommy's face and sit in her lap to play".

  So, of course Maggie needs me.  She needs to know I am there for her and needs to have that time with me.  It is just a part of her healing emotionally.  And, she is emotionally delayed due to her institutional background. and can not always deal with things like separation.  She's also a typical two year old and a tiny bit spoiled.

I have lots to write about and share and have been wanting to post about our Christmas and how much Maggie loves her doll house and the boys love their soft blankets and Auburn shirts, about how wonderful our gotcha day celebration was and all the New years reflections I have. But, all that will have to wait for now.

  I have a Super Velcro Baby that needs me.

I don't think I've ever left a comment on your blog, but I've been reading for while. We both used the same agency and our girls were from the same province. We were 2 months ahead of you though. Just wanted to say I know where you are are and you're not alone. Maggie seems to be doing really well all around and she's beautiful!

Hang in there mom. At least if you are going to have a baby attached to you, she is a super cute one. :)
