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.

One sick Panda and Daddy's Bday

Well, we have germies in our house big time!!! Noah is on sick little Panda and Celeste and I are both sickes too!  Noah bein sick just tears my heart out!  This morning after barely eating breakfast and taking some medicine he climbed up in a chari with Bella and was watcing ELMO and FELL ASLEEP!  Now if you know Noah you KNOW he does not go to sleep very easily, and not in the morning and NEVER during ELMO!!!!  Poor guy felt so bad! 

Is that not the sweetest picture!!!! :) 

took one a bit further out to see the feet!  sooo cute! :)
I made a pineapple upside down cake today!! :)  Today is Bobby's Birthday and he loves pineapple upside down cake so I made it for him!  Added bonus, I DO NOT like pineapple!  no tempatation for me! :)  heehee

My Binky Boo!  AKA Daddy!  Happy Birthday My Love!

We got an update today on our little Frogie boy!!  He has lost a little more weight and his head circumference has not grown in like 5 or 6 months.  I did notice they are giving him a bit more formula each day now so I guess they are hoping it will help him not loose weight.  This is what the update said:

January 2010: teeth Growth: 8 upper front teeth and 9 lower front teeth.

January 2010: Sometimes when he wakes up in the middle of the night, he could not go back to sleep. His sleep time is not very regular. When he hears name being called, he would respond by opening his mouth, smiling or moving his body.

He has way more teeth than Noah did at that age!  :)  It is sad to me he may have all his teeth by the time I get him but that is ok!  I worry about him not getting proper rest when they talk about the sleep issues.  I am determined I will need to learn to say his Chinese name if he reacts to it! :)  I can't wait to see him smile and move about! :)
Here is the weight chart:

I am a bit concered about the weight loss, but I know it is not a large loss or anything so it is most likely fine :)  I may just have we a little petite fellow!  Hey that will be good when I am carrying him around in whatever wraps and carriers I can come up with :)  heehee
I made this today :)
22 months old!
Thinking about my frogie boy as we are in another month without him.  When we began our journey to Jeremiah 10 months ago I had NO CLUE he would not be home by now :(  but I have to trust that GOD KNOWS the time best!
We have had some sweet Conversation heart Pillows, Sweetie face and monster face pillows donated to our adoption.  I was thinking folks might want to help out Jeremiah for Valentine's Day and so I am calling it the For the Love of Jeremiah Pillow sale!  :) LOL  course if they are left after Valentine's Day I will still be selling them :)  Anyway, they are all $5 each plus shipping.  Flat rate priority mail is like $4.90 I think it is.  I am sure I can get 2 or 3 in a box maybe more.  Buy a bunch and I will see how many fit in that box and if someone buys too many for that box the next size up is like $7.90 I think.  Anyway, tell me what you think of the pillows???? :)

these 2 are sold as a set BFF (best friends forever :)  $10

this is the back of the BFF pillows

The 2 pink Monsters have sold and  have a home!  Blue Boy NEEDS a home! :) 

These 3 guys have a home!  SOLD  :)

these are little busy bags!  :)  they have a little notepad and pen in them :)  The embroidered design on the front of each is the embroidery line Gift for Jeremiah that was made as a fundraiser for Jeremiah!  If you or anyone you know likes the designs or this kind of thing send them to the site HERE and they can purchase this set or see other things they have at The Charming Station.  She has alot of neat things to buy even if you can't sew so check her out and maybe you will find something you need and it will help tell her thank you!  That fundraiser raised about $1100!!!!!  I need a bunch more like that! :)

and check out these adorable daiper covers! :)   These are $5 as well :)  I also have some Christmas ones and some Fall holiday ones that I have for $3 each that someone could scoop up for next year :)

Please if you haven't looked at our Auction for Jeremiah yet take a minute and check it out :)

I am getting so excited knowing that we will be logged in to court most likely by the end of next week or so!!!!  that is like amazing BUT at the same time it is scary, that means there is a set limit to how much time we have to raise the rest of our funds and I have been told from the beginning court should go EXTRA QUICK in this case!  That is amazing and wonderful for Jeremiah!  HE NEEDS to be home quick!  So that puts me racking my brain for fundraisers to get funds coming in much quicker!!!! :)  I have started a Pampered Chef Fundraiser Online and will have a party at my house on Feb. 25th! :)  If you are interested go HERE.  And I am looking into anything I can to raise the money and quickly.  PLEASE be in prayer for us as we await a decision on a possible adoption loan.  It is a BIG longshot but God is Able and if that is the way HE wants to do this then they will say yes! :)  I was told they might require a cosigner, which we do NOT have so if they do then it won't work, so we need them to be willing to do it without a cosigner.  Also has anyone ever heard of The Lydia Fund? I am working on an application for their grant.  There is a fee to apply but I am gonna give it a shot and another one I found as well that was recommended.  STILL waiting on word from Show Hope so that is an option too! :)  I am writing Anna's Forever Families tongith because the grant check has not come and I am worried sick now!  Anyway, I will quit babbling to yall now!

Jeremiah my sweet frogie boy!  Mommy loves you so much sweetie and she is doing all she can to get you HOME and soon!  I can't wait to hold you in my arms and feed you myself!  I can't wait to see you smile at me and move around to the sound of my voice! :)  I can't wait to be putting updates on you up that I personally experienced.  I know God is prepearing ME and YOU and all of us to be ready for the amazing future HE has for us! :)  I am prayin for you sweetheart to sleep well tonight and to dream sweet dreams and while you do angel boy catch my kisses in the wind!

Tell your kids to be careful what they pray for! :)

ok, so Celeste has been PRAYING God would send a baby sister next time!  She loves Noah and Jeremiah but she wants us to adopt a GIRL and is quite vocal on it.  WHY are you not adopting a girl.  I told her we adopt the children God sends and to talk to God about it!  Well, now the joke is be more specific when you talk to God and ask for a HUMAN girl!!!!
meet our new rescued little girl!  Bella Faith Sisemore!  She has been abused :(  and needs to experience love!  Friends KNEW I had a special love of Dauschunds and they knew someone who had taken this little girl in to save her from abusive folks but HAD to rehome here because of no pet policy.  Hense ME! :)  Yup we adopt doggies and babies! :)  The vet says she is about 2 years old so we are officially making her birthday today February 8th!! :)  She is the sweetest thing and is in my chair with me now where she has been since I got her.  At one point I had her, Brownie (who is offically bobby's dog but loves me to death! LOL), Gizmo (Celeste's dog) and Noah all in my lap at th esame time.  NOW I know why I am sooo big!  LOL  NEED all that room!  Soon Jeremiah will be in my lap too :)  I CAN"T WAIT :)  Anyway on to more pics :)

Noah just loves Bella :)

This shot is sooo cute!!!! :) He is sooooo sick and looks it but get enough meds in him and you get smile like this!!!

Doesn't she have the most beautiful face??? :)  That is why her name is Bella!  It means beautiful!  and Faith because she came at a point in my life when I need so many extra measures of Faith on this journey to Jeremiah!  She is gonna help me get ready for him! :)

Celeste may gripe about wanting a baby sister to shop for and spoil but she sure loves her bubby!

another shot of them together :)  I can't wait till there is 3 of them together :)

you can seee how sick he is here!  and his face is dirty.  Jei Jei took this shot!  I am like could you not have cleaned his face first!  LOL  He is SOOO running when we come near him to clean him lately.  His little face is raw :(

this is sooo sweet :)  Notice his eye?  that has been happening on and off.  And he also does his "pirate" look when in sunlight or when he first wakes up.  I am thinking we need to go back to eye doctor. 

We still have the white rocking Chair that was Celeste's when she was little and we pulled it out tonight to see what Noah would think of it :)  Here are some pics :)

This is him teasing.  Took forever to actually get him in it, at first he acted scared  and then he would run in front and look at you but not sit :)  eventually he sat

he is sorta in it here :)

here he is on his elmo couch!  We missed a really cute shot of him laying on this couch with his feet propped up on the elmo pillow!  It was adorable but he stopped to quickly to get it!

See the teasing face! :)  heehee

rock rock

Jeremiah my sweet frogie boy!  Mama soooo aches to hold you in her arms!  There are so many things going on in our lives that I think about what it would be like if you were home with us.  Mama has to trust that Jesus KNOWS the perfect timing for you to come home!  Baby please know daddy and I and a bunch of other folks too are working so hard to raise all the money and praying hard for the judge and those responsible for making all this happen for you to come home! :)  I can't wait for that day baby boy!  I love you with all my heart!  Catch my kisses in the wind sweetheart!

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!
