Tomorrow is a big day for us. We are taking a trip down to Waukesha to Bethany Christian Services, the agency that has worked with us throughout our adoption process. It is our final visit with them. It's a chance for them to see Joshua, and for us to fill out all the paperwork involved with the upcoming court date.
On top of that, it's my 32nd birthday tomorrow...and we both have the day off. We're planning on a nice leisurely day, marking a milestone in the creation of our family.
Joshua is 7 months old now, and doing so well. He's started babbling a lot, and while we know he isn't saying actual words, hearing "da-da-da-da" sure melts Chris's heart! He goes back in on March 12 for a flu shot and weight check. He loves his food, enjoys playing, and practicing standing. He is a great sleeper. We have yet to see any teeth, but he shows all the signs of teething.
We are blessed. I am supremely blessed, as my mom reminded me tonight, to be a wife, sister, daughter, granddaughter, niece, friend, teacher, and most of all, a mama and a child of God.
