A Month of Milestones

Well over the past month or so at our house, we have celebrated/experienced several milestones. First of all we re-did Sam's room to accommodate 2 boys instead of 1! We are all ready for a little brother and the other bed looks so lonely without little Xin in it. While we were moving beds into the attic, we decided it was time for Jiada to sleep in her big-girl bed so the crib was packed away. We did not rush this event and yes, she was too old to be in a crib but she LOVED her crib so why change a great thing? Besides, I realized this will probably be my last child to sleep in a crib. So that little task was done with a few tears shed (by me, NOT Jaida). Next came Will's 45th birthday! The kids just LOVE birthdays and numbers mean nothing to them so we enjoyed that celebration! The next day we learned our dossier was sent to China!!!! One step closer to our Xin. Shortly after that Sam finally lost his top tooth! He did not get a tooth until he was 15 months old so he has been very slow to lose them. He looks so darn cute with that big gap on top now! We also experienced our first set of stitches as Julia took that honor. She rode her bike into a mailbox and gashed her finger open-YUK! Will was the lucky parent to attend that ordeal because I would have then required stitches in MY head as I would have fainted right there in the exam room! All in all it was a busy month and an event filled month and a blessed month! Thank you Lord!


  1. Sounds like ya'll been busy having fun, except for poor Jaida's finger! We have been so lucky in that department thus far! But I'll be the lucky one to deal with stitches or any other accidents! Miss you guys! Take care and tell Will Happy Belated Birthday!

  2. Whoa busy! And I am so with you on the crib thing, but we went ahead and did it too. On my birthday weekend in October. Nadia doesn't get out in the morning or after her nap though. LOL. She still calls for me to come get her. All day she will get in and out playing, but it's great that she isn't wandering when she wakes up.
