And 1 Year Since Coppélia’s First Meeting…

And we also celebrate our first meeting with Coppélia this week as well. We did not yet have a court date for her at the time of our meeting (it actually came just 24 hours later), but the agency allowed us to meet her while we were already there in Seoul. (I think if they…

1 Year Since A First Meeting…

This month is going to be a lot of Korea, a lot of milestones, and such on the blog so get ready…. A year ago today (minus the time change which really makes it a year ago yesterday evening…but whatever), Clint and I made our way across Seoul on the subway to our agency and…

Paxton-10 Months Home!

Paxton has been home 10 months and a few days (because like usual I am a couple of days behind). He is small but mighty. He doesn’t seem to understand that he is not as big as Leighton and strongly believes he can do whatever anyone else can do and will set out to prove…

Coppélia-9 Months Home!

Sunday marked Coppélia’s 9 months home. I spent the afternoon in the ER with Caedmon (in a story to come sometime) so I’m a few days late posting this. She has been making some huge strides with her language. She is slowly beginning to put a couple of words together and while anyone outside of…

Potty Training…Times 2……

Because everything is seriously more fun if it is doubled right? Or that’s at least what I keep telling myself. This wasn’t the first time that I’ve attempted to potty train the two littles. I tried in the summer and neither were anywhere close to being ready. I tried in the fall and Coppélia was…

Paxton-9 months home!

Christmas Day marked Paxton’s 9 month home day. I of course was a few days late getting his photo and such taken. Not that I didn’t remember on Christmas, but sometimes a lot happens between the thought “oh, Paxton’s been home 9 months today, I need to get his photo taken” and the actual photo…

4 Years Ago Today….

4 years ago today Clint and I sat in an office just a short drive from our house today and officially began the process to bring Edric JoonSoo home. It was a late Monday afternoon, we had received his file just the Friday before and made our decision shortly after opening and reviewing his file…

Coppélia Home 7 Months and Paxton Home 8 Months!

Maybe it’s because I’m lazy maybe it’s because life has been busy, maybe it’s because I’m exhausted from chasing tiny humans around all day, but for whatever reason I’m combining these two posts into one this month. Clint and I have said it both a number of times, these two are more “two-year-old” than any…

Dedication…

This past Saturday we got to celebrate child dedication at our church for Edric, Paxton and Coppelia. We did baby dedications for Leighton and Caedmon when they were born and had planned on doing Edric’s dedication after he came home but somewhere in the midst of everything it got put on the back burner and…

Paxton-7 Months Home!

Last week we celebrated Paxton being home for 7 months. The weather was not very nice outside and he was rather crabby from his nap when he woke up so we took the photo inside.  Paxton loves playing outside. He loves playing and riding in the red truck. He also loves riding his little strider…

Coppélia-6 Months Home!

Coppélia has been home 6 months. It was a super windy day on Saturday so I took her 6 month photo on her bedroom inside out of the wind. Surrounded by her butterflies. And just in case you are wondering the bow lasted all of about 5 minutes in her hair. She is starting to…

Paxton-6 Months Home (and a few days)….

Paxton has been home for 6 months as of last Monday! It took me a few extra days to get his photo taken because life happens and I always remembered at the wrong time. But we got the photo and are celebrating that he has been with us 1/2 a year! I think I’ve said…
