Welcome to our corner of the web! Here you will learn about our family and our journey of a family member adoption. In July of 2010, after 9 years of trying to add to our family and 5 years after we started our adoption journey, we welcomed baby Emily Rose. Emily's birth mom is Sharon's adopted sister. We look forward to someday adopting more children but for now, we are enjoying our time together as a family of 4!

Can she get any cuter?!

The answer to that would be yes! YES! She can get cuter. And she does! But seriously, just when I think she could never be any cuter, she proves me wrong. So I have just stopped asking myself if she can get any cuter. Because I know now the answer is yes. ;o)

Emily is now 2 and a half weeks old. We had her 2 week check up on Monday. The dr. said she is a happy, healthy, perfect baby! Emily has gained in weight and height. She is now 9 lbs. 10 oz. and is 21 and 3/4 inches. She is in size 1 diapers (the newborns have always been tight on her. They had to actually order size 1's in the hospital for her because the didn't have any. LOL) She has very few newborn clothes that fit her. She is mostly wearing 0-3 months. Emily can also hold her head up by herself (she is still slightly wobbly, but can hold her head up for minutes at a time). She also is trying to push herself up while she is on her tummy. She smiles a lot and LOVE'S to kick! She laughs, but only while she is sleeping. We are loving every sleepless, wonderful, blissful moment of our new lives as a family of 4!

The top picture of her smiling is my favorite. Baby smiles are the best!
