Sea World

A few weeks ago we went over to Sea World for their Halloween celebration.

Pumpkin Festival

Here are some pictures that we took at a pumpkin festival last Saturday.

I am still working on the posts from his birthday party. I got busy and forgot to take pictures so I am waiting to get them from a friend and my mom.

Happy 3rd birthday!

Today is my baby's 3rd birthday! It is bittersweet. His growth and development amazes me, but in the process I have seemed to of lost my baby. He is now a little boy and has totally lost the baby face. Where did the time go? I asked him the morning of his birthday party if he was still my baby and he quickly replied "No!" Bryson was so excited to bring cupcakes to school for his birthday this morning. He walked in the door of school very proudly and as everyone told him happy birthday, I could just see the grin on his face. Tonight we are taking him to one of his favorite places, Chuck E Cheese. It should be a great day!

Party time!!!

Bryson had a great birthday party today minus a few accidents. We were decorating and Bryson was helping my mother in law put tablecloths on the tables and walked into the corner of one. It split the corner of his eye open and he wore a band-aid for the remainder of the party. About 15 minutes later, he was sitting at the table and flipped through it hitting his head on the concrete. Despite the rough first 30 minutes, he had a great time and got many awesome gifts.

Two years ago today

I received a call from the director of Adoption Options telling me he had a referral for us. It is a amazing the range of emotions you can get when you receive "the call." He told me a few details and said I would receive an email shortly from him with a picture and medical information. I remember refreshing my email at least a hundred times in that five minute wait that seemed like an hour. I couldn't wait for Shane to open that email and my heart stopped when I saw it in my inbox. I clicked open and immediately scrolled down to the picture before I read anything and at that moment, I fell in love. I thought he was absolutely beautiful and dressed so adorably. I then called Shane to tell him the news and he felt the same way. After that I called both of our moms and asked them if they wanted to see pictures of their future grandson. It's was an incredible day that I will always remember and cherish.

Beautiful saying

A friend of mine emailed me this saying and said she thought of me. It is really sweet.

"We witness a miracle every time a child enters the world, but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by god's very own hands."
