Just when I get excited....

Well we are still siting at #13. I really am getting quite tired of the wait. We are at one year one, one month, and six days since we sent in our preliminary application. I know we should't start counting until our formal application (7 months 4 weeks and one day) and being on the waiting list but I have been thinking about our little girl every day since the first application was sent (probably before then). I just really want the wait to be over! I know that a few more months (read 5-6) in the big scheme of things isn't really that long, but my arms and my heart hurt to know my child. I want to be able to look at her face, see her eyes. When I pray I want a face to go with the name. I am not a patient person. (Ask my mother) Ok I am done whining and I'm not sure if I should even post this but I will because I want this blog to be genuine and true. One day we will have our baby and one day I will not just look at her little face I will kiss her sweet cheeks and hold her little dimpled hands, one day all of this waiting will be worth it because I will have the most precious gift, I will have Abeni.

Tuesday afternoon was a great time.  Sun was out, there was no rain in sight, and we were soaking it up.  We purchased a kiddie pool for the boys to have some good ol' fashion fun in the back yard.  Miles and Isaac love playing in the water and of course the biggest boy in the family loves playing in the water and with his boys.  Miles pretending to be a swimming dinosaur and Isaac so thrilled to be playing the water just splashing around.  I was able to be motorboat with Isaac as the passenger on my back and Miles as the motor in between my legs making motor sounds.  We were going round and round in the pool for at least an hour and a half.  I love summer time, especially when I am able to watch my boys enjoying it.  Ari had a good time too, Isaac demanded that she get in and get the flowers on her bathing suit wet.  And he liked to make us kiss.  For some reason he really likes it when Ari and I kiss.. But what man in his right mind wouldn't want to kiss his sexy wifey!

Watch Me Tumble

Well here is it 12:49 AM and I am not sleeping.. I normally don't sleep very well when I am away from my family.  I guess the whole apprehension of leaving them for 5 weeks is also causing me to not sleep.  Well anyway, Miles had his first tumbling performance on Saturday.  It was so awesome, to say the least.  Him and his little buddies did great (when they were able to focus).  And guess whose kid was the one at the front just so excited to see Mommy and Daddy, oh yes, MILES....  Who cares, he had a blast, we were able to be there and watch our son do something great and wonderful, and both sets of Grandparents were able to drive all the way down and support him.  He was so thrilled to have his Grandparents there to watch.  Thanks Grandma LaWana, Papa Jay, Oma and Papa Steve you made your grandson's night.

Well that was easy.

The home-study meeting is done. I really liked the social worker. She was easy to talk to and seemed very at ease. Actually being able to do something besides just sitting and waiting did make me feel great. I really love the idea of making progress. Now we just need to do a few more things to have a completed home study and then we wait again. WAHOO I am learning patience in this process. And if you were wondering no movement on the list this week.

The Screaming Eagle Fat Bob

So here it is.  The newest of the rehabbed PowerWheels.  It started out as a red Harley Davidson.  This one is being prepared for Miles as a gift for his 4th Birthday coming up next month.  We are modeling it after the 2009 Screaming Eagle Fat Bob, which Miles drools over when we go to the Local HD shop.  We got chrome paint and painted the engine and pipes, but it seems that it won't stay on the plastic.  So it may come off and go back to the gray color. I am still working on putting on the head light and need to order some decals.  New hobbies are wonderful.
