"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

There are so many snapshots in my mind that I think, "I wish Danny could see her." I truly believe that our children's birth parents will forever be a huge part of our lives, regardless of how often we see them...they are always on our mind and in our hearts. And we are missing them so much while we are away.

Last night I was putting this punkin to bed and just had to take a pic for her birth parents. She LOVES her blankies and paci. And don't you worry, she'll ditch that sleep cap as soon as I walk out of her room!

Emery's twists. I think this is day 2, but I can't remember. I love how Sadie and Emme interact nowadays. They are so fun to watch. (side note: Emme's twists lasted 5 days and Sadie's 8! They were fuzzilicious, but I was so excited how long they stayed in! We are embracing the fuzz, but also want to make sure our hair looks "fancy" as Owen calls it! The boys loved the twists)

Do you see right between those two sections where her hair is growing back? Hee hee
Another lil glimpse of everyday life I want to share with our first families. This is our daily stop...the park. This park happens to be smack dab in the middle of Owen's and Cooper's schools. There are tennis courts, covered picnic tables, big shade trees, and CLEAN potties! And evidently everyone in this small community brings their yard toys here instead of tossing them. It's awesome because we couldn't bring any of this stuff with us from Oklahoma!There are scooters, push toys, kitchens, ride on toys, play lawn mowers, bikes and new stuff appears every week. What a fun idea!

We have almost an hour every morning to play here before Coop's school starts. Aren't we blessed??? Today we had 2 play dates here, so the girls and I were at this park for about 4.5 hours playing here today. I smell like a 4th grader!

They love the sandbox the most!

Awww. Makes me so proud. Sisterly love! Poor baby girl!

Molly! I have not been on your blog in ages and I have not been blogging a lot myself. The kids have grown and are adorable. I see that you have relocated in reading your blog.
Welcome! The heat here is crazy. Keep in touch!
