Update...

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.

Hi Amy-I'm glad that Brady's rash cleared up and that your kids are doing so well together! I'm sure you are very busy with 2 kids now! :) I hope you all are doing well!

Oh, those two giving hugs and kisses just sounds so cute! :-) I'm so glad Brady's rash cleared up, I'm sure that was a nice weight off your shoulders! That's great that Ryan loves his job. Please definitely keep us posted! We've missed you! :-)

So excited to hear that all is going so well. It sounds like your children are bonding so well. We cannot wait until we can see ours together too. I'm sure it will be hard as they will both seek our attention/affection, but I also think they will bond as yours have done.

I'm also thankful that Ryan loves his job. That is so important as you spend so much time there.

We are so excited for your family and look forward to your next update!! Thanks also for all your comments and help via e-mail too!

I'm glad Allison and Brady are doing so well together! I'm also thrilled Brady's rash is gone - what a relief. I know you never want to see little ones uncomfortable. Keep us updated - like Becky said - we've missed you.

So glad to hear things are going good. Too cute that they are giving each other kisses! I had been wondering about you. Did you get my email last week?

I wish that my niece IV was a little bit older so that I could've taken her to Nemo on ice - some day soon I hope! I'm glad that Brady's rash is gone! It sounds like Allison and Brady are doing well too! Can't wait to hear more about what's going on with you guys! Congrats to Ryan on his new job!

Oh good, Brady's rash is gone! I'm glad that overall Allison and Brady are getting along well. We are wondering how Tyler will feel with a new brother, and we're hoping it will go OK. I'm sure it's harder to post, now that you have Brady home.

I am so glad that you guys are doing good. I can't wait for us in MN to get together with all our boys. We will have to plan something this summer!!
