Waiting some more's been way too long since updating this blog!

Our home study agency is taking so long doing our update! They started in December and still are not done. I am so angry. So far two of our social workers have quit or been fired and we are on social worker number three (same agency). There are several boys on the waiting list right now we could have if our home study was done. Ick...I'm so mad!

Unfortunately, because of my new job, we are going to end up waiting some more! I will not have maternity leave until I've worked there a year. Sigh.

Oh well, I think little Eddie will really enjoy having us to himself for another year.

Now we'll have to get ANOTHER homestudy update since we're moving and have new jobs, etc. Such fun!

A long time.....'s been a long time since I've posted anything here! Brief update:

Little Eddie is doing's a recent picture. Also, we've decided to go ahead with our China SN adoption. We should have a toddler boy home within the year, if all goes well. Yea!

Memorial Day Party


Kysten, Donnell, & Eddie



Jackie's Wedding

Here are a few pictures from Jackie's wedding. Not sure how I managed it, but I didn't actually get any of Jackie and Larry! If anyone has any they want to send me, please do!

4th of July

Here are some pictures from our 4th of July party. We had so much fun--we watched fireworks and swam at Uncle Jim's lake house and stayed out at the farm with lots of family.

Eddie at 18 months

I can't believe Eddie is already 18 months old! He is growing and changing so much. Here are some cute pictures of him from the last few months. Some of his favorite activities are playing ball (he's obsessed with his new basketball goal), swimming, playing with his cousins, looking at books, defeating baby safety locks, watching Shaun the Sheep & Sesame Street, going to the library, playing with the cats, and removing all the items from mommy's nightstand and dresser. He still doesn't like to talk much, but can say quite a few words when he feels like it: cat, dog, mama, daddy, ball (favorite word, I think), drink, cracker (he thinks all food is called a cracker), banana, book, mine (isn't that nice?). I'm sure there are more that I just can't think of right now.

He looks so old in this picture!
