She turned 6 months yesterday, but I couldn't post because I am loving the discussion going on below and wanted to hear from more people. If you haven't read it...please take some time to do so. If you have commented and shared...I thank you from the bottom of my heart! This is teaching me so much and affirming what I already believed in my heart.
I feel like this topic is so important for all of us as Christians to talk about and get out in the open.
So onto little Miss! I mean, you all come here to see my kiddos right?
She is not quite 15 lbs and is 26 inches long! She's our string bean, long and lean...so wish I could have ever been called a string bean!
Her little legs have thickened up just a bit, which made her shots much easier for me to watch. But still, she's so tiny you swear their gonna hit bone!
Owen stood over her while she got her shots. He held one hand while I held the other.
He talked to her the whole time and then kissed her hand and cheek each time she cried.
Cooper was trying to get his peek at her too, but he was a little less concerned about her and a little more concerned about him! Right on track for his age, huh?
She is staying awake longer, sleeping through the nights (12 hours peeps!), "talking" to the boys, loves sitting up and is already into Baby Einstein and books. She seems to be very social and loves watching people and touching faces. If anyone is holding her she wants to "hold" their face. She usually puts one hand on each cheek...it's adorable to have those sweet hands on me all day.
Her smile seriously takes up her whole face and there are times where she is so very serious taking it all in (like in this next picture)!
Okay, I could go on and on about how this sweet daughter still makes my heart skip a beat when I see her. You know that feeling when you can actually feel your heart turn to mush and jump at the same time? Yep, we are there....all 4 of us. Totally, helplessly in love with her!
Come on! Look at that sweet smile! Aren't you just smitten looking at her? I get to kiss that sweet face all day long!
And you know what happens this month...they release us to adopt her! YAHOO! We have our final post-placement visit on Friday and then our papers will be sent to our attorney, a.k.a. Aunt Becki (ah the joys of having a sister and BIL that are lawyers). It is quite fun having her up in front of the judge with us. There's nothing like your attorney crying during your hearing!
We'll let you know when we have a court day.Makes me teary just thinking about it!
Speaking of getting teary, we got a call from Momma G (Sadie's birth mom). It was so good to hear her voice. I didn't let her talk long before asking if we could see her. Please pray that everything works out so that we can see her tomorrow! We are dying to just squeeze on her and for Sadie to see her again.
Enough rambling...read the post below. Pray for us that we can understand clearly what God is calling us to do.
