Our Beautiful Boy!

Here he is!  The most beautiful little boy!  He will be 9 months at the end of this month!  This is his 8 month picture.  Hopefully there will be more to come :)

These are his newborn pictures!  He was a beautiful 6 lbs 5 oz., 19 1/2 inches.

I praise God for this amazing little guy.  We are so blessed to be his mommy and daddy.  I just can't wait to hold him in my arms.

It's a BOY!!!

I am so happy to announce that we have a son!!! I was in walmart shopping with my two baby girls when I got the call.  I almost didn't answer it not recognizing the phone number but I am so very glad that I did. Here is a little of how it went:
Social Worker:  Are you driving?
Me: No, just shopping in walmart.
SW: well, you may want to sit down because you have a baby!
Me: (something like) Oh my goodness.  Are you serious?!  Praise the Lord.  Thank you Jesus!
I was definately turning some heads because I immidiately started crying.  I was so overwhelmed with joy, I was shaking.  After I got off the phone with our SW I told the girls that they had a baby brother!  They were excited of course!  I tried to call my husband but wasn't able to get a hold of him for THREE HOURS!!  Finally he called and I told him that it wasn't an emergency but I needed to go pick him up from work.  When he got in the car Brooklyn said "Addison is going to be a big sister!".  He was so surprised and so happy.  And then she told him that the baby was a baby brother!  I am so happy for my husband that he has a son!  And the really great part is that they already share a special day, their birthday September 28!  Our son is 8 months old and the cutest little guy in the world.  He actually looks a lot like our girls, the button nose and big round cheeks that you just want to kiss all day long.  He has beautiful pouty lips too.  We sent off  the acceptance paperwork to Holt (our agency in Oregon) Thursday but it's not going to get there until Monday morning.  Hopefully everything will be filled out right and it will be sent onto Korea in the next few days. Once it's on its way to Korea, we can post his picture!!!
