Seven Months

















Sitting, trying new foods (starting with veggies, of course), discovering, and rediscovering are at the very top of our little girl's list of 'likes' this month and we just can get enough of her cuteness.































Eli is enjoying having his little sister around. He may start to change his mind when she starts scooting around and slobbering on his toy cars and such. He is thrilled to finally be outside more and I'm noticing that it isn't as difficult to go places with two toddlers, at least not as difficult as I had imagined. We're all learning.

Sandy (CASA-court appointed something aid) gave Eli some super-fun sandbox toys AND a train whistle! WOW!

Court appointed, and monitored, visitations started up again after a few months of not happening. Birthmom was kind to let one of the court aids take a few pictures for us since these moments in history are important for children in this situation as they grow older and start to understand more.




























Six Months

Doctor appointment. Kayla's CASA was there for several of them. Very nice of her.
















We also had a visit with Geneal, BF's mother, and Jennifer, biological older sister. Jennifer thinks Matt is an awesome brother, BF's younger brother.



















Five Months

Aaaaand we're back! For a few moments. Never stopped taking pictures though and now there are a TON to sort through. Except for March 2010. I unknowingly deleted those before I copied them to my computer (kicking myself).

During Kayla's visitations (since BP were working on adequate parenting skills) Eli and I would go to different places like the Littleton Museum, House of Bounce, raquetball court, different parks close by, and out to eat.

There were also a few good snow falls (early spring 2010) and Eli really enjoyed helping Vern plow and shovel the cul-de-sac sidewalks, walkways, and driveways. As well as taking breaks to catch the latest on sports and munch down some popcorn or apple slices. Those two sure do miss each other.
