My life is...

FULL- We were granted guardianship of two children recently: an almost two year old boy named Talon, and a week old baby girl named Kadin. I don't know how long they will be with us, but we are going to love them as our own for as long as they are. I know, I know... Leeda gets along really well with 'Spike' and baby girl has not yet been released from the hospital. Our second baby (we'll find out what we're having soon) is due in March- so like I said, FULL house!

CRAZY- Spike's b-day is the 8th of Oct.- what do you get a two year old boy?? We are still learning a lot about him, it's funny to see the little quirks he has. Like not wanted to sleep more than a few hours...long nights make for a crazy mommy!! plus, I am really antsy as to when baby girl will get to come home.

BLESSED- This little boy is such a sweetheart. He loves to share with Leeda, and likes to have him around. I know that my own son being independant and Spike being lax is a great advantage. We are also blessed to have so many of our family and friends supporting our decision to help these kids. I know that the Lord had his hand in all of this- the things that led up to and have happened since make it very clear that we are doing the right thing. We are so blessed in Heavenly Father's love.

MESSY- Oh my. My home will never be the same lol. Thank goodness I was too lazy to pack up Leeda's baby things... like bassinette... and that we opted for a 4 bedroom home. Funny how fast they filled up! Oh...any suggestions on where to have the toy box? Bedroom or living room?

EXCITING-I am excited to have these kids... my sister in law has/will have two kids the same ages and gender- yeah cousins!! I am excited for christmas this year, one little boy to love his toys, the other to love the wrapping paper! Leeda has been cutting more teeth- and STEPPING! We'll have two walkers on our hands soon... he is anxious to keep up with Spike! I am finally over most of my sickness and M'Adam is excited to have a little girl to hold...all day. :) (He's also excited to plan a backyard- we'll see how that goes)

So that's us for now- not a lot happened before that. But now that I'll have more to write about- I'll keep you updated :) plus, I have some catch-up pictures of Leeda to post! LOVE!
