I have been really slacking on here.  

I'm exhausted.

But I have news:  We heard from baby Faith's social worker that she will be moving Friday. Her 2 year old sister is also in foster care and they think it would be best to have the girls together until reunification with their birth mother can happen.  Although we are sad to see her go, we agree with her social workers decision. 

I have 2 sisters and there is nothing like the bond we share.

I have my last mom-visit on Thursday and then we will drop Faith off at her new home on Friday.  I am in the process of making a little scrap-book for her this week with pictures of her and of us and little stories about how she has been as a baby these past 10 weeks.

This experience has been the most exhausting, challenging, and rewarding thing we as a couple have ever taken on.  It caused so much self-examination and we are better because of it.  


I am now 8 weeks pregnant and starting to show already (but have managed to not break out the maternity clothes...yet).  For the most part I feel good.  I am tired and feel sick from time to time, but other than that I feel like myself.  

My first doctors appointment is on June 22 and I'm expecting to have an ultra sound done to date the pregnancy, but am certain that I'm right on.  

I had a dream the night before last that we were at an appointment and our midwife told us we were having twins, a boy and a girl.  HA!  That would be hilarious but completely fitting of our crazy lives. :)

We have decided not to find out if we are having a boy or a girl.  Since we have one of each we figured we'd keep it a surprise.  A few of our friends did this recently with their thirds and it was fun to guess and see the outcome.  

Unless we are having twins....then we will HAVE to know!  ;-D

Pics of Brody's first birthday party will be up soon!!!  He was such a cutie and loved his birthday cake! 

Also, our friends John and Taryn, took his 1 year pictures and I need to post those as well!  SO stinkin' cute!  

And, Mark's birthday was last week and yes, we have more pics!!!!  Ahhh!  I need an assistant! :)

Hope you all are well!!!!
