Care Package No. 2

When we got Teague’s last update, we received a picture. Our last care package made it in time! (Excuse the funny cropping. I had to remove his foster mother from the picture.) The update included that he is now walking unassisted and saying Mama and Dada (or maybe the Korean equivalents?) It’s time to send…

Swimming And Crafting

Today’s big activites were Alex’s swim class and Crafternoon (hosted by Nicki). The YMCA has two options for 3 year old swim class. The child can be with the parent or without. I wasn’t sure which way would work best for Alex but all of the classes with a parent were full. I signed him…

Happy Birthday (To Me)

Today I turned 33. Alex understood it was my birthday and would randomly say, “Happy Birthday Mom” all day long. We didn’t really celebrate till after Wade got home from work. Then we went to dinner at Habanero’s before Alex opened all of my presents. Alex had been saying for weeks that he was going…

Sleeping Issues

Alex, my wonderful sleeper, has started to have some trouble. The biggest issue is going to bed – whether for a nap or at bedtime. Five to ten minutes after you close his door he cries. When you open his door he has great reasons: “You forgot to turn on the fan” “I have to…

I was most impressed with the owl, but Alex loved…

Productive

Wade worked hard while Alex and I were playing with the grandparents. The parachute launcher wasn’t a surprise (Wade sent a video showing it), but the new swing was! Alex now has a custom-built swing (with wood from his great-grandaddy’s barn).

Ice Cream

The highlight of the day was our trip to Yo Mama’s story time. The power was off when we got there, but quickly came back on. There weren’t many kids so the three little boys banded together and had a blast. They ended the time by running laps in around the middle candy station. We…

The Trip From **** (For Both Of Us)

When Alex and I got downstairs this morning I realized we were going to celebrate my birthday a little early!! After breakfast and presents, Alex and Gam played (with Popoids – a childhood favorite) while the rest of us got ready for church. The plan had always been to stay for church and lunch before…
