Referral Anniversary

Hard to believe that a year has gone by since our referral (Aug 11)! It seems at some moments like it was yesterday that we first saw the pictures of our new children, but then at other times, it is like they have always been with us. We are so excited to see what the next few months have in store for everybody. Ruthie is now walking on her own, up to 10 steps at a time! Eli is still running and crashing into everything in sight. The kids have grown so much. At referral and now there measurements were/are:
Eli: 2008 24 in. and 9.4 lbs 2009 34.5 in and 30 lbs

Ruthie: 2008 21.6 in and 6.8 lbs 2009 31.5 in and 27 lbs

We are so happy and thankful that they are with us. We can't imagine life without them and remember their birth mom often.

A fun evening and pregnancy update

Well, it appears that I may have gestational diabetes. Oh yippee. I will be heading in next week to chat with the nurse and educator. All the kids are enjoying the warm weather - finally! Noelle has been swimming lately and the kids are enjoying going for walks. The pictures are from sidewalk chalk the other evening. Yes, we did have to change their pjs because they got full of chalk dust. it was a spur of themoment thing. Enjoy!
