I first heard of this lullaby from my friend Britney. Then I open a big book of lullaby's and children's stories to read to Sam and I see it there. I love it!!
I see the moon, and the moon sees me The moon sees somebody I'd like to see So,God Bless the moon and God bless me God Bless the "somebody" I'd like to see
Of course I can't help but to tear up because of the meaning behind it for Britney, and then I think of the meaning for me. There is "somebody" out there I would definitely like to see!!! We're here waiting for you! ♥
Yesss today is my birthday! I'm 38. Thank goodness I feel 28! lol:) It was a good day. Got to hang out with Sam all day and see my family. Kenny and Sam got me new charms for my bracelet, a shamrock, a coffee cup, a birthday cake and a camera! I love them...soon I will need another bracelet. :) Sam made my birthday cake and boy was it good! He also made some brownies. Man....he will make a great catch when he gets older(if I let him go)lol...he cooks, he sweet and he's so adorable!! :) :) Anyway....still no news on the babies! I thought they would want to meet aunt Meggie already! Nan, Thursday will be here soon. :( :) ohhhh btw I think it's going to be a boy and a girl! just a hunch, we'll see if I'm right. Here are some pics of today and one of the house with the Easter decorations. Sweet dreams!
Yay!!! It's the first day of spring. I love spring! It was sooooo warm and sunny and beautiful out today. We spent the better part of the day outside, playing at the park. Sammy played baseball with one of the big kids at the park and actually hit the ball and far!!! He's a natural, and it's so cute because he's so little. After nap, the ice cream man came around for the first time this season!! Sam was sooooo excited, I quick shut off the water (I was doing dishes) and we ran out without our shoes on to get SpongeBob ice pop.You will see by the picture he was very happy! :) We were on our own for the day, Kenny made an arrest and hasn't been home yet. He had to stay and go right to work for tonight! Sammy and I went to the precinct and he got to drive the police car!! He loved it. He also loved getting to see Daddy at work and to give him smookies, he missed him all day. Thanks for working so hard for us Daddy! Nancy is still pregnant! 38 weeks and counting..... Off to count sheep I go. Catch ya soon! p.s. it's really nice getting to know you L!
We went to the parade in NYC. It was fun but, not the same with out you B! Sammy loved the train rides. We did the railroad and the subway. Choo-choo!!! We met our friends Steve and Jerry after they marched in the parade. We also got to see Uncle Phil! He was working, his post was at the Plaza. Sam had his first walk thru Central Park. It was such a beautiful day, it actually got a lil hot. Sammy passed out on the way home, which was good because we had to go to Ava's birthday party that night. As always we had a great time with Aunt KK and Uncle Johnny, Jalen & Ava. St.Patty's Day came to a close, may the luck o' the irish be with us thru the year!
Another rainy day! ugh! We just stayed inside and played. Sammy and I braved the rain this morning, we had to get out for a while :) to get a bagel. Then we were cuddled up warm in the house. We played choo-choo's and fought some monsters. Ohhh and don't forget fighting the fires...woooo woooo woooo! Then Sam drew a picture and we made a card for his birth momma for St. Patricks Day. Finally it was time for meatballs. The kid loves him some meatballs!! And today marks 2 wks since I met a new friend, Hi L! Nancy is stillll pregnant. Babies are BIG, come out, come out wherever you are!!! lol She's missing her belly button, if you see it around let me know. This not such an exciting post but I have some cute pics from today!

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! ♥
