A Little Man of Leisure

The front room is pretty drafty so I found the robe that I had bought for the little guy a while back. He is now a gentleman of leisure (if he will hold still long enough).

Too Much Candy Corn

I do believe that the boy has had too much candy corn this season.

At least I was thinking about posting

Right. So it has been a month and every day I think, "Hmm, I should really post some new pictures 'n stuff." Finally, I am stitting down. Family and friends know that I am a terrible procrastinator. But really....I was thinking about doing it all month!

To get to the meat of things:

1. I needed some home improvement instant gratification.

The hubby and I are still plugging along on the bedroom remodel. When we (I) were still mudding and sanding, I deceided that I would stop what I was doing and start a NEW project. (Again, to family and friends, this is nothing new. When it comes to any project, I think I have ADHD).

Here is the before...apparently the only pictures I have of the dining room are from eight years ago (and thirty pounds ago). As another aside - this picture cracks me up! We all look so goofy!


After:


2. The boy continues to be funny.

We have had this Pampers box for at least a month and it continues to be a favorite toy. Its latest adaptation has been as a lounging-tv-watching-bed.


He has figured out how to use a straw:


He likes cake with blue icing:



He liked going to Chuck E Cheese (oh shudder):



And...he has discovered that he is a boy.

A New Chapter Begins!

Today, after almost a year from when our little guy came to our home, we officially transitioned from foster care into the adoption process.

Yahoo! (You can see that the baby is actually yawning - so he is a bit less excited than we are).

Maybe in a few more months we'll be a family - legally!!!

On the road to family life?

So we have made one more step in family-dom and away from being DINKs. Behold...our first minivan. Noooooooooooo!!!!

(Actually, I total dig the van - a Mazda5 - even though it means we are transitioning into yuppie soccer mom status. And....we now have three vehicles...how un-green is that???)

I can do it myself

There really isn't much explanation needed for these pictures. It is amazing to me, that in just over a year, a little critter, I mean kid, can go from a squirmy, helpless, mushy, "being" to a VERY independent, temperamental, giggly, person. I wonder what can of worms we have opened...
