Almost There!

On the days that we've both been home with Steven, we've been working with him on walking, and he is getting the hand of it! He's gone at least 4 steps before either falling down or reaching his destination. We might have a walker by Monday!

My temp. job is done now too. Yay! I didn't mind the work, and I'll definitely miss my new friends, but our house definitely reflects the fact that I've been working full time for the past month. A two week part of the project starts on Monday, and only 10-20 people were invited from our room (60ish). I was one of the ones invited, which was cool, but I had to turn it down because it requires 100% attendance, and I have too many doctors' appointments that we're trying to fit in before the baby comes/end of the year flex spending expires. It also would have been crazy since it would have finished just one week before the due date!

We had a nice time celebrating Thanksgiving with my family last night. Yep, Friday night. On Wednesday night my parents and sisters ordered in, and the girls got pizza and my dad had wings. My mom and sisters got horrible food poisoning, so we delayed Thanksgiving. I'm so glad that they're all feeling better again!

Steven thoroughly enjoyed his first Thanksgiving dinner. Mashed potatoes are one of his favorites, and he certainly didn't turn down the turkey, stuffing, and rolls either :) We got a few pictures of him feeding himself mashed potatoes (I wanted to eat too!), and once I find/look for the new memory stick adaptor, I'll post them.

We've had a lot of stuff going on the past few weeks, mainly with work or the adoption, and I am so glad to be "slowing down" a little since work is over. I've been busy sorting and washing girls clothes, and our pack and play in the living room is now filled almost to the top with clothes that were donated to us. We didn't get too much in the way of hand-me-downs for Steven, so this has been an amazing blessing. Thank you so much, Jessica and Lilly!

I'll try to do a better job of keeping this updated. There's nothing quite like a neglected blog :( I'll have another baby update Tuesday evening after Steven's birthmother and I go back to the hospital ultrasound. Please pray that baby girl's stomach is growing so they don't have to move up the due date. We truly do appreciate all your prayers as we go through this process!

I would love to donate some girl clothes as well.....please let me know what sizes you need. With a new baby boy, it is looking like we may never use the 20 or so boxes we have. Please let me know!

Yay! Glad you made it through such a packed month and can slow down a bit for a few weeks before life gets really busy again. :-) Let me know about the stuff for Ebony. I had a pile on my front porch but moved it to the garage for fear Purple Heart would take it! If Ebony does not need them I would like to find another home to bless or sell them to the consignment shop. Specifically, a little tikes table, very nice doll stroller with doll, girls bike in excellent condition, 2T and 3T Lands' End coats, assorted toys.
