Silly boy..

Mayer wants to play hockey….without ice skates.  He wants to participate in skating lessons…but in his socks.  He refuses to put weight on his legs when there are skates on them.  But cries “Mayer tooooo” when he sees the others skate. Oh boy…

My adorable boy in F.’s hockey gear. Minus the skates of course.

It’s almost that time…

One year.

One year ago tonight we were arriving in Uganda to meet our son. 

How could it possibly be a year?!

2010 was one of the hardest years of my life.  But it was also the most amazing. 

The year we met our son and the year we officially became a family. 

I can’t believe we’ve known this amazing little guy for a full year.  He’s grown so much.  He’s went from a baby to a big boy.  He’s so smart, so fun.  We feel so blessed. 

Now, I wonder what 2011 will bring?? :)

Mayer’s 3rd Birthday

Mayer is 3 years old!
He had a beautiful party with many friends and family. It was a “Cars” theme. He loved it.
He was the most adorable little guy while we were singing to him. He smiled shyly the whole time and then blew his candle out in one big blow like he’s done it for years.

Happy birthday to our beautiful baby boy!
