Kelly loved the photos of Matthew,16 months old already. They grow so fast, I can't believe our Zachary will be 1 year old on Easter already!!! I loved the Matthew wallpaper, would love to get some Zachary wallpaper done. I have never seen it before wonder how they did it, really different. What a lucky little boy he is to have such a loving family. Thanks for sharring the photos, I have to get some up-to-date ones of Zachary on soon. Definately his birthday photos. Denise.

Kelly,

Matthew is so cute!! I'm so loving being a mommy! Now that first month well that was horrible (no sleep and the chance the bmom could change her mind). I finally feel like he is mine, and well the sleep is still lacking but I'm used to it now. I rememeber you made the comment that ppl ask why Matthew is so light when you and dh are dark. Well we get that now with Jonah only the other way around. He isn't very dark but compared to me he is :) Dh and I visited a different church with friends and I asked him how long he thought it would be before someone mentioned his coloring. He thought that no one would but just before we left someone said so how does this baby have a tan already? I laughed (inside) and said well because he is biracial :) The womans face blanched, looked at my dh and then goes oh he's adopted. I Love to do that! So how is the search for number 2 going?

God bless,

Missy

Yes, it's alot of fun I think to see people's reactions when they realize that your child is adopted. People always comments on Matthew having blonde hair and blue eyes. When he's with just one parent everyone assumes that he looks like the other parent. But when we are all together you can see the wheels turning in peoples heads.

Our search for #2 is well...I guess we aren't really searching. We have let the dr. that matched us with Matthew's birthmom know that we are interested in adopting again. He is really excited about that and says that he has had a couple of girls considering adoption but decided to parent. So we figure that when it happens again it's meant to be. So for the time being we are just praying and enjoying being parents.

Oh, also I have been meaning to tell you that we found a new church. Our old church was like 3000 people and I just felt it was too big for us. So we searched and found a place that I LOVE. Matthew is having a hard time with the nursery. We drop him off at 10:30am and he stays in there until noon. Everytime he cries and then once they actually had to come get me out of service. Last Sunday he cried at first but within a couple of minutes he was playing and I checked on him a couple of times during service and he was fine. But it makes me feel awful when I have to leave him like that...ugh.

Well, wow that was a ramble. I feel like I hadn't talked to you in forever.

Hi, Kel! Matthew's pics are adorable. The one in the hot tub with all the steam cracks me up! Looks like your trip to Canada was fun & filled with family get together time. We are going to Kansas in a few wks for my Grandma's 90th birthday party. I am hoping to do the same "photo op" you did with my Grandma, my Dad, me & Tucker, which would be 4 generations of our family. It's pretty cool to think about.

Matthew reminds me so much of Tucker it is scary (twin thing surfacing again!). Tucker is 2 mos older but Matthew looks big for his age (like Tucker) so they remind me of each other. Tucker is also blue eyed, blond-haired & very fair complected, like Matthew. Maybe they are cyber-twins too?

I'll try to post some Tucker pictures soon for everyone to see. Thanks for sharing your cutie pie with us! - Kelly (Mommy to Tucker, 18 mos old)
