Hot Saturday Night

I have to laugh at myself as I remember the Saturday nights of old, the dressing up, going out to a great restaurant, meeting friends for a drink, hearing some live music or going to a show... and then considered my Saturday nights these days.

Case in point: This past Saturday, DH picked up a gourmet Chi.ck.Fi.l.A dinner from the drive through for us, we ate, I gave the baby her bath, put her to bed, mopped the floors and was in bed by 9:45.

How things have changed! But I wouldn't trade it for all the fancy dinners and nights on the town. I love you, Baby Girl!

PS - Good news, though - next Friday is our 5 year anniversay, which means Nonna is babysitting and we have a date! ;-)

A New Waiting Family

I love to check back frequently on the website for our adoption agency. It just gives me such a warm feeling to be "connected" the wonderful people there. I love seeing new families come in and then watching them ultimately be listed as Matched!! I was overjoyed when I checked the site a couple of days ago and saw some friends of ours listed as a Waiting Family! Yay!! We only learned this dear couple had been struggling with several years of infertility after we adopted our sweet baby last fall. They approached us with their story and their interest in adoption, and we shared with them all we had learned through our experience. Although they live in a different state, they chose to go with an agency that is local to us. We had such a positive experience with our agency and I am hoping and praying that they do, as well. I'm such so excited that their adoption journey has begun and I can't wait to meet their precious baby!!

6 Month Stats

We had our 6 month well visit today!!!

Height: 26.25 inches  (67%)
Weight: 15 lbs, 13 oz (45%)
Head Circum: 17 inches (70%)

She is sitting pretty well unassisted, but ends up toppling over at some point, so I don't get too far away!

We are through 3 weeks on cereal and 4 days on peas! She clearly doesn't love the peas, but is battling through them until a yummier vege comes along!

My girl is growing up!!!
