Girls Night Out

Tonight I got to hang out with a bunch of mom's. This group of mom's had 2 things in common. The first was that we were all mom's (or soon to be mom's) and the second was that we are all in the process of adopting or have already adopted from Ethiopia. It was so much fun hanging out with this group and meeting some new people. It was also fun to see pictures of those people who have already received their referral or are already home with their child(ren). Hopefully we can all get together again soon and enjoy another night together.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...


This afternoon (after dealing with the mall crowd just to buy nothing) we went shopping for our chirstmas tree. Micah picked this one out (with mom and dads help), so now it is in our living room.

I was looking through some pics of Micah to print out for his grandpa and found this one. I took it when I took him to John Ball Zoo earlier this fall. He is such a ham for the camera.

We are still here :)

I got a little "in trouble" from a new friend (who is also adopting from Ethiopia) that I have not updated our blog in a while. Just letting you all know that we are still around. We do not have anything to update on the adoption front. We are still awaiting a referral and still predict it to take another 11 months.

Micah is starting to like his toilet. (hopefully that means potty training will happen soon) He learned the word Pee Pee this week and does tell us after he has gone. However, he doesn't want you to just change his diaper, he has to sit on his toilet for 15 mins before hand. So I have been spending much of my days sitting on the bathroom floor waiting for him to finish. (He is probably going to get after me by posting this on this blog, but that is what mothers are for:-))

It is getting late, so I will post some updated pictures of Micah shortly.
