Sorry about the silence! Here's where I've been....

**Alex got his body cast off on Wednesday. He's not walking yet, but I hear he's crawling a lot and standing a little. Woohoo for a cast-free summer!!! ;)

**I used to think that 2 weeks of VBS would be AWESOME.... Then I helped with the toddler class, and realized why all the teachers thought that would totally not work. I enjoyed helping Lauren teach (actually she taught, I kid-wrangled), but I was happy to sleep in this morning, and Jason and I are about to get ready and head out for some adult fun. (Relax, we're going to Haagen-Daz and J. Alexander's. That's about as wild and crazy as we get, okay?) Between Body Cast Boy, Colby's surgery, Heather's house, fire class, and VBS, we haven't had a date in forEVER. Sorry, no nieces, nephews, or even friends allowed. Sorry, Coldstone gang!!

Now back to semi-regularly scheduled adoption-related stuff. As soon as we go have a little fun. :)

Plugging along :)

The cast comes off in 9 days!! ;) And nephew "C" had his tonsils and adenoids removed successfully, along with a biopsy. He's on the road to recovery as well. Things are slowly returning to "normal" around here, so maybe I'll have a chance to return to "normal" posting.
We're now less than 11 months away from the beginning of paperwork. Jason and I baby-sat nephew "B" for 3 afternoons/nights last week. I thought I'd be done spoiling and ready for him to go back home, but when I got home and sat down on the couch by myself, I was a little lost at what to do next. Granted, he's just a little guy who can't crawl/walk, get into things, back-talk, etc just yet.... But it made me want one 24/7 even more!
Right now, I'm trying to focus on getting my house back to order. Our niece and nephews have needed/wanted us a lot lately, and as long as I am able, I will go whenever they call. My house will still be there when all of our babies grow up and think Aunt Nessa isn't so cool anymore. Here's to more order and less clutter! :)
