We are super excited, Sam's birthmom is coming to stay for 2 days in just four days!!! Can't wait :)Christmas was fun, Sam was sooooo excited he loved all his presents, especially his fire truck woooo woooo woooo!! That's all he says, sooo funny! My Dad is doing really good, he made us all cry on Christmas by crying himself, telling us all how much he loves us. I love my Daddy!! Kenny got me a camera Yay!! I love it. I am always with my camera so mine is trashed, but not anymore!! Pics to come, I'm just too tired tonight. Need to go to sleep, gotta get up early for bath and body works semi-annual sale tomorrow!! Rice flower and shea lotion Yay!!! sweet dreams
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! Life is good, I cried as I laid Sam down to sleep because this is our 3rd Christmas with him. I remember all to well crying because we wanted a baby so badly for so many years. So many years I hoped to have a baby for Christmas, God is good, Sam is here! I know he will work his miracles again, maybe next Christmas I will be holding our new baby. Until then I will hold on to our little miracle and thank God everyday for him. God I love him!!!! Merry Christmas my sweet baby boy, Mommy and Daddy love you! xoxoxo
That's right sad! Christmas is here and no baby. I know it will happen but it doesn't help sometimes when you want to hold your baby. I love you so much baby, I can't wait to meet and snuggle and kiss you. Good night sweet angel, wherever you may be. We're waiting for you! Love, Mommy
We had so much snow! It was cool to wake up and see everything so white and clean and pretty. Kenny did the snow blower for our whole block and I shoveled and cleaned the cars. Sam played in the snow. He LOVED it this year. We even made snow angels. It wasn't the right kind of snow for a snowman (when am I ever going to be able to use my snowman making kit?)
Its the funniest thing, I came inside and Sam was calling "momma, I'm on the potty!" I go in he has chocolate cookie all over his face and he is sitting on the potty and trying to wipe himself. (very proud of himself) It was the cutest thing, so of course I ran and got the camera.
We then went down the block to our neighbors house for a Christmas party. Good food, man, I am still full. Next was Scooby Doo movie, Sam loves him some Scooby these days! I will leave you with some cute pics of Sam and I will throw in the ones of our tree and house at Christmas.
I know I have been slacking, but its been a busy week. Today my daddy came home from the hospital YAY!!! He's doing really well. Santa came by on the fire truck to my mom's and Sammy ran right up to him yelling Saannntttaaaa!!!!! So cute, I love him. We are supposed to get snow tomorrow, up to 2 feet! Snow angels here we come. I hope the snow is the kind to make a snowman with. Back track a little, Sam made sparkly pinecone ornaments for christmas presents. They came out realy nice. We had sparkles and glue everywhere, but we had so much fun. Talked to Sam's birthmom "B" today and we are trying to make plans for our christmas visit. Can't wait to see her. Not much else going on. Going to try and get some more shopping done tomorrow before the snow. Then I will wrap, wrap, wrap!!! OHHH and my friend that visits 4 times a year is here and I can't wait for her to leave!!!! who ever said it was your friend??? ttyl
Well after the amazing show Sam pulled of today he is definitely my hero! We had a great day. We did some shopping for Daddy, shhh Christmas presents. then it was lunch and nap. We all took a walk to the park and played on the slides. We like to race down and see who wins. Sam's fast! More Christmas cards and more shopping, picked up a really cool rocking horse for Sam, he's gonna love it. Now for the exciting part. I have been emailing with a really nice woman considering adoption, and she likes us! Sounds promising, so we will see, but I know all too well the other side of that. I am gonna try and get some sleep tonight but....my mind will be working overtime. tick tock, tick tock.....
I just had to write quick that our son is a super hero!!! He got his flu booster spray today and he got his blood drawn for a lead test and he didn't cry AT ALL! He is sooooo cool. ok, I will be back later.
Well, I guess what better way to start off than this. It's not an exciting blog post but...its real. I am tired! It is 12:20 pm and I just finished getting this layout together and I am ready for bed. This is a rundown on today. Sammy slept til 8 am yay!! Went to Starbucks for coffee with our friends Will,baby William and his sister and his mom. Then off to Toys R Us. We hit two today. This will definitely be the last year we will be able to shop with Sam along for the ride. Next we had lunch at Applebee's and watched football while Sam played with balloons and ate ice. Rainy outside today, we all took a nap. I never take naps but I couldn't resist. Sam watched Rudolph for the first time, of course I had to watch it too!! Christmas cards are half way done now. Talked to my mom and then some tv and here I am now! I will say sweet dreams for tonight, catch you tomorrow. zzzzzzzz....
Quotes I loved and borrowed from the Birth Mom Buds FB page
"I am too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated."
" The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way"
An amazing blog, by an amazing birthmom and friend!
A mother's love is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, it never fails or falters, even though the heart is breaking ~ Helen Rice

The special meanings of the songs we picked!
"I knew I loved you before I met you" :
This happens to be our wedding song, but also has a new meaning since we have been blessed with Sam. We loved him wayyyy before we ever met him.
Sometimes we didn't understand the broken road, from infertility to the wait to adopt, until we held Sam in our arms. It led us to him and now we are on that road again. We cant wait to see how God blesses this broken road!
This song just makes us think of some of the wishes we have for the birth mom in our life, will be in our lives and all that have touched our lives. We are better people for knowing and loving you. Thank you! ♥ M,K,&S
I cry everytime I hear this, thinking of Sam's birthmom.
Kenny's fav movie. We watched it on our second date and he knew every line. :)
"All I want for Christmas":
While I know she is talking about a man in the song, I can't help but tear up and think about wanting a baby by Christmas. I did before Sam and now I did it this year too. And ya know...they play the song all the time during Christmas!
Talk about tears! This song is dedicated to Sam's birth mom and our future child/childrens birthmom, and to all birth moms who are brave and amazing to us. We love you! ♥
