I will be alone for 7 days with two sick kids...not to mention I am starting to feel sick. I am popping pills like crazy hoping/praying I will not get sick. Charlie has a tradeshow for work. We hate it when he is gone!! We will miss you daddy!

We had Jeremiah's first birthday on Sunday. What a blessed day it was. We choose May 7th to be his birthday. With some help from our Doctor this is the day we will celebrate his life. But the biggest day we will celebrate is the day he was in our arms forever. His gotcha day March 16th 2010! This day we will PARTAY! :D

Enjoy pics from his birthday party and some random pictures I thought you'd enjoy.

One month...

One month "gotcha" day. One month ago today we "gotcha" FOREVER! :D

We are having a blast with our little man. He is crawling on hands and knees now. His leg strength is much better. He refers to us now as mama and dada! :D
He is eating amazingly and in two weeks he gained a pound and a half. He is really teething now...maybe he'll have teeth for his first birthday!?

He is really bonded to us and loves Emmy. She can sometimes bug him but what big sister doesn't?! (hehehe)

We are just so blessed to have him in our lives. We love you little man!!

One month ago today...

One month ago today I held you for the first time...
One month ago today my dream was fulfilled...
One month ago today we saw the face up close we'd seen in a dozen pictures...
One month ago today I got to whisper I am your mommy and I love you...
one month ago today I became a mommy to two children...
One month ago today I kissed your lips (FINALLY!)...
One month ago today I couldn't believe it was all coming true...

It seems like you've been with us much is all so natural and we are so blessed to be your family. Thank you Jesus for this precious gift. Tomorrow is our one month "gotcha day". The day we "gotcha" forever!! :D

We started praying for our next child months ago...Through those months God has led us to pray for an older child. Our hearts are wide open. We'll see what God does. :D

This poem was on a friends blog. I needed to post it. It speaks volumes to us.

The Waiting Child
by Debbie Bodie

I saw you meet your child today
You kissed your baby joyfully
And as you walked away with her
I played pretend you'd chosen me.

I'm happy for the baby, yet
Inside I'm aching miserably
I want to plead as you go by,
"Does no-one want a child of three?"

I saw you meet your child today
In love with her before you met
And as I watched you take her out
I knew it wasn't my turn yet.

I recognize you from last year!
I knew I'd seen your face before!
But you came for a second babe.
Does no-one want a child of four?

I saw you meet your child today
But this time there was something new
A nurse came in and took MY hand
And then she gave my hand to you.

Can this be true? I'm almost six!
And there are infants here you see?
But then you kissed me and I knew
The child you chose this time was me.

Couldn't help but copy this from another's speaks volumes for what today says for us believers.

How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.

How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory.

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers.

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom.
