I am literally playing "CATCH UP" on my blog!

I have been SO behind.


Blakely came home from the hospital to a crowd of happy siblings!

I TURNED the big 4....0!!
The Captain says I'm holding my present :)
Here are the kids and I on my b-day-some happy, most not.

We survived lots of "FIRSTS"

 Her first Bath at home..

Her FIRST wheat harvest..

Slept through her FIRST trip to the driving range...

First Visit at home from Papa and Grandma...

Her FIRST babysitter so mom and dad could go on a Harley ride..




She is a true miracle and joy for our entire family!

I WILL catch up on everyones blogs EVENTUALLY-I PROMISE!

It's just being a DAIRY QUEEN has me wore slick!

Still so very happy for you guys!

And so grateful to you that now when we consider adoption we'll be able to consider adopting an embryo as well. Thanks for blogging about your experience and shedding some light on this new and beautiful form of adoption!
