Done...for now

Well...I'm done blogging for now. There's a lot going on, but nothing really to say. I dont't feel comfortable talking about it all because the princess's birth parents are out there, and I just worry about them stumbling upon this blog. Honestly, they scare me a little, so I just don't feel comfortable risking it by sharing too much info or pictures.
Our adoption is final, princess is 100% ours, legally and forever. They will NEVER get her back, but they still worry me, so I'm going to cut myself off from blogging for a while. If things settle down, I might come back. I might go private, I'm just not sure.
If you still want to read if I go private, please leave me a comment and let me know.

Bad, Bad Blogger!

Sorry it's been so long since I've blogged. Things are going great, we have some stuff going on that I'm not at all ready to talk about. Nothing bad, actually, could be pretty great, but I'm just not ready to discuss it.
Baby girl is getting so big, climbing on everything, new words every day. I get so caught up in loving her that I just don't have the time to get on here!
Hope all is well in the blog world. I keep up with all your blogs even if I don't comment!

Blog Abandoned?

For now...I/we have so much going on right now that I just haven't had the time or desire to update this blog. I think I might open up a new blog for our family...I'm just not sure yet.
Things are going great, we are a family of 3 and will stay that way, birth family skipped town so we will not be getting the new baby. We should finalize in the next 6 months-1year. Hopefully sooner than later but only time will tell.
I'm not working from home for my inlaws. I love my new job and I'm very very happy. Things honestly couldn't be going better. Maybe that's why I don't feel like blogging, I have nothing to complain about! Haha.
Hopefully I'll be back up to it soon...I don't know if anyone is even reading anymore...

Wow being a mommy is very time consuming. I can't believe how much time has past since my last post. Not much has changed that I can talk about. There are some things with the new baby that may end up speeding up the finalization of our adoption of baby girl, but we won't know if the birth parents follow through for another couple of weeks.
I can't believe she's has been home for over 2 months now. Life has changed in so many wonderful and amazing ways. She'll be 1 in 6 weeks. We are going to have a huge party. She loves people, we had a big welcome home party for her and she loved it. We are so overjoyed by her.
As I was rocking her to sleep tonight, she reached up and put her hand on my face. In that moment I realize that there isn't one single thing I would change that led to this point in my life. Everything, the pain of infertility, the pregnancy loss, the saddness, the process of adopting...none of that would I change for anything in the world. All of that led us to our daughter. And she is the light of my life. She warms my heart and soul in ways I never knew a child could. She is worth all of that pain, and more. I would do anything to make her happy. Anything.
When she giggles, I giggle.
When she cries, my heartbreaks.
When she tries to walk, I hold my breath with nervous excitement.
Every step, growth, accomplishment, fills me with so much joy. I'm so proud of all the things she has done in the last 2 months.

I only hope we've made her as happy as she's made us.

Our Princess

So, she is 9 months old today. She is standing on her own for short bursts of time, speed crawling, and walking with a walker. She's also progressed so fast since she's been in our home that it'll give you whiplash. She's started talking so much more, and mimicks like crazy. When we first got her home she barely made a peep, and was hardly pulling herself up on furniture. She's changing so fast.
So, we took her to the dr yesterday for a checkup and to get her caught up on her vaccinations. I cried longer than she did! It was horrible watching her hurt and not being able to make it better! Her 9 month stats:
23lbs (97th percentile)
32 inches (off the charts by 2 inches)
Healthy as a horse and right on track developmentally.

So, she's going to be a very tall girl. She's going to tower over her mama.

As for me, I'm enjoying every minute. It's been 2 weeks since we brought her home. It's amazing how easy it is to forget what life was like before. How quickly we've morphed into parents. I've never felt so fulfilled.
And this may not be the end. Birth parents are preggo again, and we've been asked if the new baby can be placed with us when it is born. She claims she's due in Feb, but she's already showing, so we're pretty sure she's lying about that too. We shall see.
God has a plan for us, and we'll just wait and see what that plan is. We're more than happy with just our princess...but if we have another we'll be thrilled too. Only time will tell...

Oh the joy

My heart is full. My daughter is home. Things have been great, she sleeps 4-5 hour stretches at night, 2-3 hour long naps during the day. We are adjusting well.
I never knew being a mommy could be this wonderful. I'm overjoyed.
