For Heather and Paul...

These lovely parents-to-be NEED your thoughts, prayers, good wishes, etc.! They are using the same adoption program we used and have already been waiting to bring their daughter Olivia home for 5 1/2 months. As you may recall, we had a somewhat slow judge and the wait was TORTURE! Poor Heather and Paul seem to be stuck with an even slower one...not fair! So I wanted to ask Aidan and Lauren's grandmas (my blog followers) and any of my other friends to send speedy judge thoughts to Taiwan as well...hope we can all read their good news any day!

Moon Sand

I am getting over being sick (hopefully) and bought the kids some Moon Sand today for a fun diversion. For those unfamiliar, it's kind of like Play-Doh (but it doesn't dry out or smell funny)--it's reusable, moldable sand. They love it! They're scantily dressed because they were spraying each other with the hose when we were outside planting broccoli this afternoon. Happy Spring!


Taking a break for some huggy and kissy time.

And a couple of videos for the grandmas. Not sure where Aidan got this explanation of where Moon Sand comes from, but it's very cute!

Two Years of Lauren Love!

Two years ago today, we finally held baby Lauren in our arms for the first time. Here's how we celebrated today:


Cupcakes, of course. (With Lightning McQueen paper cups.)

A super-fun playdate (and belated birthday celebration for Felice) with Henry and Max.
Dinner, then more cupcakes.

Bathtime, then some nakey playtime in the crib with piles of blankets, binkies and stuffed animals.

And some cuddle time with Mama. We had a wonderful day and are so lucky that we get to be parents to these two!
