Month 23

One room in our home we are really proud of is the playroom. We have tons of toys, books, and games in it. Our cousins love to play dress up and read books when they sleepover. We’re looking forward to having a little one we can play with in here. We have faith that after 23 months of being a waiting family that we are closer to becoming parents. 

What does a home study update look like?

A home study update is sort of an abstract idea if you are not familiar with adoption and the home study process. So, our initial home study was 100% soup to nuts Continue reading

March Recipes (& Adoption Update)

We tried THREE new recipes in March. While we’ve had a few duds, we have a few huge winners, too! With our busy month, we inadvertently didn’t try new recipes until just last week. Since we didn’t have a ton of time, we stuck with two Continue reading

Month 22

Two of our “little” cousins came over for the weekend. We love when they visit! They love playing as many games we can fit into our time together. This visit we played Racko, Batman, Life, Wahoo, Clue, and Watch Ya’ Mouth. We also played Scoop Ball and Frisbee outside. We can’t believe we played all those! It was tons of fun (even Life). Jessica usually has at least one project or activity available. This time she had the recipe for Ooze, and E was all about making it. She doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty. K joined in once he realized it came off your hands easily. We enjoy all the fun we have with family and are looking forward to the next family get together. E tends to ask a lot about the baby. She can’t wait for a baby to join our family. K, being a boy, seems less interested. Haha!   Jess loved hearing their “little” footsteps in the morning, and she imagined hearing our children’s “quietly” stomping around the house. We know no matter how many months we wait to be parents it will be worth it. Feel free to share. 

Adoption March Madness

It’s March already, y’all! As if you didn’t know that! This year is flying by, and we haven’t had a lot of time to update. While we haven’t had a shortage of fun things to share, even we have to do mundane things like taking our pets to the vet, running errands, going to appointments, etc. Don’t even get us started on being sick! But, we’re back to update y’all on a few things. Continue reading

January Snapshot

Ah, January…in Virginia…it can be a strange thing. We had snow and days near 70 degrees in one week. Maybe it’s not all that Continue reading
