We made it!

We hit our one year anniversary of waiting today and to celebrate I wanted to take pictures of the boys with the number 12 instead of just finding a picture. Well if you have ever tried to pose children and take a specific picture you know that it isn't as easy as it looks lol! So while I think the one above turned out pretty cute I will also post some funny outtakes from our little photo session.

"MOM, he is touching me again"

(what you don't see is the number 1 floating to the very wet grass below) that would be the end of the pictures this time!

New Beginnings!

Yesterday was day 1 of 1st grade at Landon's new school! We were anxiously waiting to hear how he liked it when the school day was over. I got a very enthusiastic "I LOVE IT", he was so excited and talkative about his day we were thrilled! His 2nd day was just as exciting, he came home telling me about the Spanish words he learned, how to say look in sign language and that he got to do math (his favorite). Such a big couple of days for our sweet little man (who I cannot believe is old enough to be in 1st grade :(, or that I am old enough to have a 1st grader for that matter lol). Daddy pulled out yet another of his teeth last night, between that and school he had a very exciting day and ended the day telling us that even he was proud of himself lol!

We hit the 11 month mark!

Well actually we are well past the 11 month mark and are almost to our 1 year wait, crazy! In some ways it feels so much longer than almost a year and in some ways it feels like it has flown by. Not much to report, the girl referrals have come to a screeching halt since MAY so I am not even going to render a guess on what our future holds, I have come to the peace that our path will be just that and it will happen when and how it is supposed to.

We did receive our I-171H in the mail this week, which means we are now officially approved to adopt and have no more paperwork to do at this stage. Once we receive our referral is a whole different story. It is such a relief to have all of it done and approved though, such a big step!
