July 4, 2012

This year we were able to go up to Republic to spend the 4th with John's parents. We had a really nice and relaxing visit. Mr Baby had fun spending time with his grandparents and I actually got to work on my cross-stitch for four uninterrupted hours, it was lovely. We canoed on the lake, hiked a bit, watched fireworks off the back deck, and ate way too much ice cream!

Five Months Old

Oh, it kills me that I can't post a better picture of our boy's face. He is so cute! I guess y'all will just have to put up with it with me for a while longer.

Since today Mr. Baby is 5 months old, it seems a good time to update you all about him. We have had him home for about three months now and are still in the Foster Parent stage of this game. We probably will be for quite some time or until the state decides that he must be returned to his biological parents. We aren't able to provide any more information than that, so I apologize for the vagueness.

Mr. Baby seems to have grown by leaps and bounds in the last month. He is holding his head up quite well, sitting up assisted, trying to roll over, and starting to stand while held. It is so fun watching him learn all these new things! He seems to be a contemplative little guy, watching and absorbing his surroundings. His is also having rice cereal and oatmeal with his formula at every meal. He didn't want to do it at first and had quite the little fits for the first couple of days. Once he figured out that he liked it he became much more cooperative. He sits through bedtime stories, his favorites being Hop on Pop and the Little Golden Books (which are mostly Disney in this house).

We are having great fun with our Little Guy and continue to pray that the door to adoption will open soon with a smooth path before it.
