Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

What happens when a 2 year old wiggles...

and his Mama is not a professional Haircutter!

THIS!!!! At least he is only 2 and doesn't know that he is scalped! I did not even really plan to cut Noah's hair. I had been thinking about letting it grow out and just keeping it cut around ears and the back and front from getting to long but letting it all grow to that point so I can run my hand through it when I rock him! It was just starting to get back like it was before the BIG oops the last time. I am so not good at this! Uggh. Anyway, I had to cut Bobby's for work. Thankfully Bobby likes is scalped basically! I do that well! lol . So after Daddy was done Noah had a fit to have his done, he was smacking the chair, pointing at the clippers and signing please! So I gave in and did not plan to do much, well he decided to wiggle and things went a whole other way and once it happens in one spot we are commited to continue! lol Bobby thinks it looks great and says not to worry. I am thinking how much longer it will be till I can play with his hair. I am sure Bobby would say to me he is not a girl! lol

Just thought this was a cute shot of him showing the hair, or lack their off! lol

sooo cute!

Well, our I-600A arrived safe and sound at the new lockbox place in Texas. I have no clue how long it will take to get our fingerprint appointment and then our approval letter because it is all so new now having to do things this way. Other adoptive families have shared with me they are worried it will slow things down and I am praying against that.

Here is my signature confirmation! That you Lord for Fedex and tracking so I KNOW and don't have to worry until I hear something from them!

Before the haircut fiasco I had been planning to post these pictures from Saturday with some catchy post title like EEK! I can't find Baby Noah! Where is he? I think a combination of the fact we are growing like a weed and also have a few clothes now that look like a big boy Noah is looking so OLD to us. Bobby came home the other night and Noah was in a onsie Shirt and blue Jeans and he said "HE LOOKS 4! lol Not quite but it does seem like it! He is 29 pounds and wearing 24 months clothes now! He can still wear some 18 months clothes and even size 12 months pants but if it is a one peice especially it is 24 months now! Anway on to photos :)

He is helping me by vacuuming with his puppy vacuum! How I wish that thing worked!

Saturday we walked next door to our Neices 13th Birthday Party!

I thought this looked so cute him walking holdin Daddy's hand!!

Noah loves to walk outside! :) I so love my Sister in law's yard with the white picket fence :)

See! Doesn't he look like he is grown! This is a new thing wanting to sit in a regular chair! :)

Isn't that adorable! He is sitting there with his hands in front of him on the table watching Melissa with her cookie cake and candles! I was a bit worried he might try to grab for the candles but he just watched Aunt Michelle light them all!

I love this shot!!! :)

After eating and presents it was outside to play in the yard! Noah was the youngest by a few years and to boot the next oldest is quite a big guy for his age but Noah still had a blast! :)

I love this picture of him walking :) He looks like such a big boy! :) WHERE IS MY BABY PANDA BOY??

He loves slides! Look how good he is doing! :)

This turned out to be a neat shot of him landing at the bottom of the slide!

Is that not soo cute! :) Don't know why but I just thought it was adorable :)

and I love this one too, Usually I really love the smiles best but for some reason this one jumps out at me!

This was amazing to me! He sat on a big boy swing and he let Bobby push him a little and held on!!! Now he flips on the baby swings at the park so this so surprised me! :)

Such a big boy! My baby is growing fast!

I LOVE this shot of him on the swing! He is having such fun and smiling up a storm! ;)

This is Logan (Noah's cousin) and Noah just a swingin!

Hanging out in the house with the guys! :)
And I wanted to share something I made with some of the pictures we have been given of Jeremiah! : We have not gotten a new picture since early september so this mama is really really praying for an update SOON! I know we are blessed to be in a program where we get updates at all but when you are use to once a month or a little over when the day of the month you are use to comes and no picture or update its hard, I have now passed that twice! I am thankful to have all of you who read and comment and encourage us on in the journey. This blog in and of itself is such a miracle to me. It is a way for me to share with all of you who are praying, who have become our friends, and who have fallen in love with our boys right along with us, but it is also a way to share with our boys someday what we felt and thought and wrote while we waited. I don't know if Jeremiah will ever be able to understand the words I write here but we do believe Noah will be able to understand the ones we wrote in his journey and still do now. I feel like in alot of ways parts of these posts are letters to my sons, especially the parts I have written to them at the bottom but even the parts that I share with all of you.
Anyway what do yall think of our youngest son??

Jeremiah, my sweet Frogie Boy! Mama misses you so much, I know the day will come and you will read all these things and wonder how I can miss you before I have even met you in person, held you, touched you, but oh I so do. I ache to hold you, to smell you, to stroke your skin, to feel your hair and see is it rough or very soft, to KNOW if you are ok, if you are sick, sleeping, hungry, sad, lonely, or happy and laughing. To see one of those amazing smiles directed at ME and to be able to smile back at you! To get down on the floor with you and spend time together. I don't know how I will ever explain to you and your big brother how I could love you when I was paper pregnant and you were not physically in my body, but you both grew in my heart. God put that love for you there from the second he shared with us that he was giving us each of you! Right now this time seems so long and so hard, this working and waiting, but it is really just such a short time in eternity and I have to trust that God's timing is perfect and that God will get the glory for all the miracles that already have and are continueing to happen to bring you home! I love you frogie boy and we are coming soon. Until then catch my kisses in the wind!

Great post - great party - wonderful kids - man where can you go from here? Up - always up!!

I've just got to ask - are you really under the I-600? Grandfathered in? We got stuck in the I800 (new Hague rules) documents - what a pain! Well - OK - probably not much more of a pain than the old rules - but we had 'them' figured out - now we're back to learning again!

hugs and Blessings -

aus and co.

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.

When Love Takes You In!
