My baby has finally lost a tooth!  He has been agonizing about being the only second grader who has not lost a tooth and now he has finally joined the ranks of the the toothless crooked smiled kids ;o)  He did have to have the dentist pull it because the tooth behind it was really coming in and he was kind of reminding us of a shark.  Here is the after shot ...

Zoo and Pumpkins

I worked a half day today so I picked the kids up early and we went to the zoo.  I know this is something our North East friends can not do right now given all the SNOW!  (hey got to hold something over all your heads)       We had a wonderful time and there  was a couple of new babies and an addition
                                                    to the play area!                                              

                            We also did some pumpkin carving.

More Referrals!

Our blog buddies Kane and Dawn Webber received their referral for a 7 week old baby girl!  I am supper excited for them they waited 6 1/2 months.  We have now been waiting 6 months and 4 days I am feeling very anxious that we could be next or very soon, but at the same time I feel it may never happen...  I know it must be close because even Jon my cool calm and collected man is jumping whenever the phone rings :o). This wait is making me a little nuts!  I know after we know who she is this ache will finally subside, oh but wait then I have to wait to go get her.  I am guessing this wait will be just as tough or even harder.   

Our Tucson Family is in town so we are going to the Pumpkin Patch today.  I will post pictures soon.

Referrals have come in this week 4 were baby girls and one baby boy.  Congrats to the families!  Two of the girl referrals were for families that submitted their dossier 2 weeks before ours.  I hope that this means soooooon!  I am kind of bumming today this process has been a lot harder than I thought, with all the emotional up and downs of the WAIT.  My boys keep me so busy but I find my mind wonders often when it comes to when will that phone ring and it be OUR turn.  I know the wait is nothing like other countries but it is still a tuff one.  I feel at this point she is out there somewhere needing me and I don't even know her yet.  It is also hard on the boys they ask all the time when is my sister going to be here, can I put this toy in Hasina's room for her, when Hasina is here  I am going to show her how to play this, or when my sister is here she can sleep in my bed or I will sleep in hers :O)   They are just so sweet and are going to be amazing big brothers to their sister!  That's all for now but cross your fingers it's soon, I don't know how much more I can take... (JK)  It's all in G-d's hands and I know he has the perfect match for our family somewhere out there.
