July 6th ~ A Mother of Three....

Today my husband Keith did one of the most loving & sweetest things ever...

Tonight after getting my shower, just before the kiddos were tucked into bed...

I was presented with this...
Each figured represents not only me but my three children...

There is "the mother" "the son" "daughter #1" and "daughter #2"....

I can't begin to tell you how much this simple gift means to me...

It will truly be a gift that will represent what I will always treasure the most, for the rest of my life.

And here is another photo I just could not resist sharing with you all!

This is how our little man fell asleep this afternoon!
Didn't I say he was all boy (and oh so adorable)!

I don't know which one he likes better...but I am sure if we let him sleep with his shoes as well, they would be right there in the crib with him!

Hope all is well back in the U.S.

As for my family back home ~ we are missing everyone ESPECIALLY OUR ANNABELLE so very much! Only 4 more days until we see each other again..."Mommy, Daddy, Francesca and {yes even} Benjamin love & miss you so very much!"

only 4 days to go....

What a wonderful husband you have! I'm sure you will treasure that gift for always. Love the picture of your little one. He so cute! Can't believe you'll be home in 4 days. Hope you're enjoying your last few days in China.

Hugs...

Your hubby is so very sweet!! I love his gift to you....and yes, he is very sentimental:)

That picture of Benjamin in the crib is about the sweetest thing ever.......look at him holding onto his toys. SO PRECIOUS!!! I have been thinking of you every day and praying that all is well. I can't wait until you are back here in the US and we can talk so you can tell me EVERYTHING!!!

BTW, not a peep on the cut off day. No referrals have been sent out yet for the month of July. I am on the edge of my seat waiting to hear how far they get. I know they will never get to us, but it will be a good indicator of whether we will see her face in August or Sept. If you can't sleep tonight......email me:)

Luv Ya Girl......So happy to see you officially a mother of three!!
