My Husband the Beauty Consultant

I just had to post these. I came home from work the other night to discover my wonderful husband had "attempted" a haircut on our poor little man. Here are pictures of the result. Needless to say - Brady is now a baldy!

Happy Easter!!

We had a quiet Easter at home. With our abundance of snow we decided to stay home this Easter. We spent the weekend making a "Easter Bunny Snowman", having an indoor egg hunt and brunch with friends. Hope you all enjoyed your Easter!

More Updates and Prayer Request...

So many wonderful people are heading to Russia to meet or bring home their children. I feel really fortunate to have met so many great individuals through blogging, emails and the occassional phone call. I wanted to ask for your prayers for one of these fellow adoptees - Randy and Susan. They are supposed to go to court very soon to bring their little boy home but one small piece of paper may hold them from it. You can read their story at

Brady is continuing to do well. He has not gained any weight yet which is still a concern but as he is so incredibly busy I feel he is just burning it right off (what I wouldn't do for that problem). We cook him seperate meals, put him back on formula, etc. but nothing seems to be working. He has however grown two inches since coming home. I promise to post more pictures and an update soon.

Wow, am I a bad blogger. It has been a while since my last post so here is what's new in our world.

Brady continues to be adjusting well. He and Allison appear to be loving being brother and sister very much. We certainly have many of the moments of any parent of two toddlers and take the good with the ummm...not so good.

Good things: Ryan is enjoying his new job, the kids get along SO well and love each other (they give hugs and kisses every night), Brady has been sleeping better and his rash is GONE (Thank You Prescription Hydrocortizone!), Allie and I are going to Disney on Ice (Finding Nemo) this weekend (can't wait), we now know that our kids will have two new cousins within the next year (we each have a brother with a pregnant wife...yeah!!), we have many pre-adoptive friends going to bring their children home or meet them for the first time (Congrats Patti & Matt, Norm & Carire, Carrie & Micheal, Troy & Rachel).

There are certainly "other" things going on in our lives. When we started this blog to track our adoption journey we intended on keeping it fairly positive. For now I am going to stick to that with a promise to post an update with other changes and things soon.
