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!

9 months!

The last two months have flown by! Last I knew Emily was 7 months old and now here she is a happy bubbly 9 month old!

Emily is now:

Crawling, pulling herself up on people, very close to pulling herself up on objects, walked around furniture twice, got her first tooth (sort of, it's there, has broken through, but hasn't come up more, it's been like that for two weeks!), she is wearing 12-18 month clothes, size 4 diapers, is 21lbs. 13oz. and 29 1/2 inches tall. She is in the 91% for weight for her age group, and 97% for height. She says, mama, dada, nay nay (Tamara's nickname), baba(bottle), ba (ball), waves while saying ba ba (this means bye bye), her favorite word to say is hi. And she even said cat the other day. She is loving the mommy and me gym class we go to. I love it too. I can't beleive she is 9 months! Crazy!

Living up to the blog name. :D

I know, I'm a really bad blogger these days. Life has been crazy and wonderful. Ha! We live up to our blog name! LOL Hubby is really busy with school and work and this weekend is doing one of his final drill weekends with the reserves. He has 2 after this and then he will be able to concentrate on school and work. He also figured out that he will be graduating with his Bachelor's next Spring. YAY! Of course he will go into the Master's program after that, and then the PhD program after that, but still (he is going to be a college professor). Tamara is in track and is enjoying her last couple of months as a Sophomore and is ready for her Jr. year to begin. I'm not so much ready for that. She is less then 2 months away from turning 16 and will be getting her driver's license soon after that. Emily is teething right now so we don't get much sleep around here. She just learned how to crawl a few days ago and is trying so hard to pull herself up on things. She's getting really close. Her first tooth is so close to popping through. I can feel it, so I'm thinking in the next day or two it should be up. I'm just staying busy with everything that everyone else has going on. Anyhow, I promise I will do a real post soon, I have several people who are working on guest blogs, and I have a few planned for the week after next which is National Infertility week. Anyhow, for your viewing pleasure, I present, crawling Emily!
