So Much Going On!

Well as you can imagine there is sooo much going on in lives. Yes, we are home in Italy and I know I promised pictures once we got here but I'm a bit hesitant about posting any. For one the adoption isn't finalized yet and secondly there are some lurkers I know are out there and I quite frankly don't trust. So let me think about it a few days longer before I decide what I'll do.

So as for an update as many of you know we are a military family so that means we have to in process the baby to base which is such a headache at times! You would think we'd be use to all the paperwork but I think by this point we are just tired of it LOL. Well baby boy is almost done I think we have like one or two more things left to do.

We are also getting our home situated. Who knew we'd end up with so many baby clothes and it seems likes he growing out them before he even wears them...maybe thats a hint that he has too many!! He truly is growing like a weed! He is already 23 1/4 inches long and 12 lbs.!!! He is still the cutest little man alive though! Everyone keeps telling us he is going to be a football player and if you've seen the shoulders on him you'd believe it! It is so true when they say they just grow up too fast. Its sad really and I just want to squish him so he'll stay small forever!!

Our dogs adore baby boy. They would love to lick him all day long if we let them but of course we don't. Diesel loves to sit in front of him and guard him so no one can get close to him and its sooooo cute! Peanut of course pretends that she doesn't like him one bit but yet they share blankets together LOL. And Daisy is Daisy she loves everyone!!

We also got to meet our friends' daughters and of course both of them are adorable! This really has been an amazing few months with all the adoptions that have taken place! We all feel so blessed to be parents!!! Its amazing that all of us have these amazing children that will be able to grow up together. Not many adoptive children would have such an amazing supportive system such as this! God does really work in the most wonderful of ways!!

Now that we are home I am going to start back up with school so please keep me in your prayers and I've also taken up a part time job. Don't worry its only a few hours a week but enough to get me out of the house for a little bit so I don't feel so cooped up all the time and of course I will still be volunteering with Operation Yellow Ribbon (it really is an amazing program!). So with all of this and my gorgeous little man I surely will be busy!! I love to be busy and feel accomplished so this will be good for me! Don't worry daddy will be home for the couple hours that I will be out of the hosue for work and baby boy will be accompanying me to my OYR duties. He'll just get loved on and even more spoiled than he already is!

Well not much else to report. I know its rather boring when I don't post pics sorry!

I just wanted to give everyone an update to what is going on with our adoption!!!

Our son was born March 30, 2010 at 0933. He weighed 6lbs 4oz and was 20 inches long. He was also born with a full head of hair and is the most gorgeous little man you will ever find!

Daddy is the most loving and amazing person ever! He loves his son with all his heart! He changes diapers, makes bottles, and wakes up in the  middle of the night to take care of his little one. I couldn't have asked for a better little man or daddy. They really are the best ever!

We are both beyond happy with finally being parents! Our prayers were truly answered with this amazing little one. We feel truly blessed that we are apart of his life and that we have the privilege of being parents and watching him grow!!

We flew into Utah and met our little man at 2 days old and were able to take him home from the hospital that day. We spent one week in Utah doing paperwork and then drove to Arizona so he could meet my crazy nutso family (still love you guys though!). We spent about two weeks there and then flew out to Michigan. Here is where the hubby's family is and they are just loving the baby as well. We'll be here a few weeks before we finally fly home!

I can't wait to finally be in our own home with my little rat dogs! Don't get me wrong visiting family has been great but I'm ready for my own space finally!

We have taken tons of pictures, but with my current internet connection I cannot post pics. Sorry!!!

I'll do another post as soon as we get to Italy and load tons of pics for everyone!!

I'd also like to thank all of you for keeping us in your prayers and helping make this adoption a reality! We really do love our little man and couldn't have done it without all of your love and support.

Award Woohoo!
