So last night I was reading this great book that a dear friend of mine told me about it is called Baby Wise. It is all about Feeding and Sleeping and how to have a happy baby. We I already have a happy baby...and he sleeps great but not a good napper...so I figured it can't hurt so lets read it. Well...HELLO People...I had my ah ha moment. When Julian naps he takes these 20-30 min. naps, we just thought he was a cat napper...well that is only because we start to play with him and "wake him up" So now...we are going to start a full blow routine...yes a routine! Since I am a working mother and my mother is a working Grandmother...this is what needs to be done and he will be better off with it. So today is the start of our new routine...I will keep you all posted!
***Attention all waiting or expecting moms...go and buy this book! It is a must...read this first!!! It is a MUST!!!!
I hear that there are many men and women being deployed in January 2008...do you know of any if so please comment on here for me...even if you are a lurker. I am trying to figure out what is going on here. I have heard that there is a group going from Buffalo/Niagara, South Carolina and even the 4th Bergade (sorry about spelling)...what does this all mean???? I know that in order to be safe here in the USA we NEED to be there...that is fine...I want to be SAFE...trust me...I am a mom now... a mom of a son...I see things differently now...but WE...the USA doesn't want to see another 9/11 do we? Ok...I don't want to rant on here...just my feeling.
I will keep everyone posted on when his date is posted for his leave. I knew it was coming...he told me long ago...I just didn't want to believe it...crazy sister! Hugs and Blessings

What a great weekend we had! Saturday was date night for us...dinner and movie...and we slept in until 9am! What a joy! Then today we went to Kelkenberg Farms in Akron, NY...last year we were childless and this year we have our golden boy! The ower is so nice and she remembered us! She couldn't get enough of Julian...it was really cute! So here are some pictures of our day out...pumpkin picking and a sun fulled afternoon!
Here is Daddy picking out a lot of pumpkins...and he is enjoying it!
Surrounded by all his friends...I love these gourds'

I am so looking forward to this weekend! Have a great hump day!

I got another call from an unhappy client from a local agency...asking me questions on how we went about finding Julian...I really feel like it might be my calling...I love to help others out and if it means starting a little business...then maybe that is my calling. You know how I feel about the power of prayer...so tonight I am going to pray for him to show me what my purpose in life is. I know it is to be a mother, a wife, a daughter,a sister and a friend...but maybe there is something else...something so powerful that I need his help to show me the way. I have had many phone calls from people wanting to know about our story and if I had any suggestions on adoption and how to find their baby. You know what I say..."Turn it over to the Lord...let him guide you"
It is a shame that we...infertial couples go through the pain and disappointment...but look at our reward...look at your adopted children...look into their eyes...isn't it amazing? I always feel like I am so special to have Julian as a son...I know that when his daddy holds him...that is something he would never have felt if it were not for the power of adoption...praise god!

Finally this is his 9 week old picture. I try to take a picture in the same spot every week so I can compare his growth. This was the best one I got...he was a hungry boy. I hope you enjoyed the pictures! Hugs
