Before Ridge was born, the kids had a list of things that they wanted to do with him. One of those things was get in his crib and snuggle with him. Well, Ridge was starting to wake up and fuss, so I let the kids climb in his crib with him after they woke up:
Sometimes their love and attention looks like when helping hurts, but this time it was perfect. They covered him with a blanket, Fern held his paci in his mouth, they talked to him, and they sang him songs. He became quiet as he watched and listened to them. It lasted long enough for me to grab my camera and take a million pictures and text John all the details.
We get asked how Burl and Fern are handling the addition to our family, and this is the perfect example of how well they are adjusting. For them, it's like they've gotten a new toy.
