Oh my word, has it ever been busy over here! Between travel, shocking myself (literally), my baby hitting milestones, and starting the adoption paper chase. I feel like I’m running in circles and in desperate need of the Lord to Bless my Family!
Last night, I was blending up some baby food for Mister (I make all of his baby food myself) when the little processor sparked and sorta shocked me. My left hand tingled and I had a headache for several hours afterward! I still had the headache when I went to bed. I used the processor again today, and nothing happened, so I am sure it’s okay.
Mister is now pulling himself into a standing position. He did it for the first time yesterday! It seem like just yesterday he started rolling over!
I mean, he just started crawling over things, like the chair rungs…
As you can see from the top photo, his poor little scalp is getting bumped quite a bit now that he’s more mobile. The tops of his feet and his ankles do the same thing.
He is eating at the table like a big boy…
Thank God for Dr. Brown bottles! They seem to be the only thing to help his colic. I’m not kidding you, when this boy starts one of his colic bouts, the neighbors down the street hear him.
He’s also standing…
Eep! My little boy is growing up! Did I mention that he wasn’t so fond of the pool in Iowa?
That’s Hubs, trying valiantly to cajole a smile out of him! He finally did smile, after Daddy took him out of the boat and held him…
but trust me, it didn’t last! LOL! He definitely thought playing with my niece, D3, was more fun than the pool!
Look at that grin!
We officially started the paper chase for our adoption today!
That pile of papers represents our next baby, because our application is in the mail to Lutheran Family and Children’s Services (LFCS)! Whoo Hoo! I know we have A LOT of paperwork, and A LOT of waiting to do yet, but I am excited nonetheless! We’ve been told it could be 18 months to 3 years before we’re matched, since birth mom’s choose the adoptive family through LFCS.
LFCS only chooses if the birth mom declines to chose. We’ve been cautiously warned that many birthmom’s will overlook us because of me having AEC syndrome. Well, actually, because of me not having hair, because they will likely flip right past our photo. If after 18 months we haven’t been chosen, we’ll get moved to the bottom of the “pick next” list for the social workers. I really hope it’s not that long, because we would love for our kiddos to be less than 2 years apart in age!
