About Me

My photo
My husband and I, the Dynamic Duo, have been married since 2003. We've weathered the storm of chronic disease (diagnosis 2006), infertility (diagnosis 2007), turning 30 (2006/2007 respectively) a first adoption (2009) of a tender hearted, compassionate Ukrainian BIG boy (born 2006), who has told us he'd like a baby sister, baby brother, big brother, and REALLY big sister. We recently completed our second Ukrainian adoption journey, which brought us a daughter (born 2005). We'll see what else God brings our way!

I can't believe it's been two months since I added pictures last!! Sorry about that. Time kind of slips away from me sometimes.

Here are a few pictures from our visit to Buffalo. Eli spent a lot of time at the beach. He was terrified of the ATV at first, but ended up crying when we left because he wanted to get back on the ATV. The second picture is at dinner. Can you tell he's a little tired?

This is Eli with his adorable cousin, Ethan. They did pretty good playing together. We celebrated my Grandma Stobie's birthday...I won't mention her age :)

This is Eli's favorite toy at the playground at the mall. We've been working on sharing this with other children. He's gotten a LOT better and even moves over so other kids can "drive" the car.

Lovin' life in the tub. Isn't he funny?

Eli and his new car slippers.

This is one of my favorite moments. Dave and Eli working on the race car ;)
