Two thirty somethings, both teachers, working on growing our family and living life to the fullest. We were blessed with our first daughter through the miracle of adoption in July 2010 and welcomed our second daughter after a surprise pregnancy in September 2011. Then, in 2014 we added a precious boy to our growing family.
Formally, "Our Journey, But Not Our Plan. It's hard to deal with now. But, one day, it will all be worth it."
Our blog title changed when we realized that our plans changed and that it was ok that they did. And guess what? It has ALL been totally worth it!
Follow us as we continue our journey!
On Easter Sunday, we gave the girls their Easter basket right before we left. They loved what they received, but Teegan didn't like her Daddy and Big Sis putting the 'grass' on her head. Chloe seemed to like Teegan's basket just as much as hers. The night before, we grilled out as our Easter meal. We went to my sister's house first. My Dad was there also. After an amazing meal, we hid and found Easter eggs. My sister gave each girl a prize. Then, we went to DH's parents' house. I couldn't eat (we literally when right after we left my sister's). We then helped the girls hunt egges there with prizes folllowing.
On 4.7.12 Teegan turned 7 months old. Where has all of the time gone? She is getting so big. She is wearing size 3 diapers and 6-9/9 months clothing. When she wears shoes, they are size 2. She finally had her 6 month appointment at the end of March. She was 27.25 inches long (85%) and 18lbs(75%). Her head measured 17 inches. Rolling over (anyway) is of no issue and if she is on her boppy or on a pillow she can sit the rest of the way up. She doesn't mind belly time and pushes herself up with her arms. She is starting to bring her legs up under her. She will be crawling in now time. She eats solids twice a day (approximately half of a container); it is mixed with rice or oatmeal. She drinks 4 or 5 bottles a day (6-8 oz each). She also really enjoys juice. Her hand-eye coordination amazes us daily.
Today is our Forever Family Day. I can't believe that one year ago we were in court dressed up, answering questions and signing the paperwork. We then we out to eat to celebrate. It's been an amazing year. We are beyond blessed. Baby C, Chloe, is the best Big Sis ever! Baby T, Teegan, has come into our family and turned our family of three into a family of four very quickly.
Today we are our celebrating as a family...21 months ago I would have never dreamt that this was where we would be today.
