A little of this and that/ Patrice won mother of the year!

Patrice won Mother of the year!!!! 

I am super excited that my friend Patrice has been nominated as one of the ten finalists for Mother of the Year at Triad Moms on Main. I went and stayed with her family for 8 days recently and learned all things EB. I wrote a super long post about why I think she should win HERE. If you have 2 seconds please click HERE and vote for her. I would love it if she could win this! 

In other news we should get our home study back any day and mail it off along with our USCIS paperwork. Once we mail them off I will start working on our dossier. We can't wait to bring our sweet boy home but we know we still have a ways to go. You can read the updates on our adoption blog.

I am super super excited that Mandy at The Lucky Seven offered to redo my blogs for me as a gift. I love what she has done to our family blog and I can't wait to show y'all the new design for our adoption blog once it is finished. Mandy thank you so much for all of your hard work I LOVE both of the blogs!

It is my new goal (okay it has been my goal for awhile) to get us back on some sort of schedule. I was a VERY scheduled person with Kenya and over the years that has faded a ton... okay there is NO schedule anymore. I would really like to get back on one though because I know it will make every ones lives easier when we leave the kids twice to go to Eastern Europe to meet (the first trip) and adopt (the second trip) Baby A. I also know it will be easier for us all if we are on a schedule once Baby A comes home. So that's what I am planning on doing starting tomorrow. I will let you know how it goes. 

And here is proof that it is almost impossible to get a good picture of Judah since he is always on the go.

 Kenya was such a good sport and tried so hard to get Judah to stand by her.

Have a GREAT day!

Vanessa, you are so sweet. ♥ I absolutely LOVED working on your blogs with you. You're such a special person.

I voted for Patrice! I read your post on the adoption blog about her daily life. Whew! I felt overwhelmed just *reading* about everything she has to do in one day. Jonah is such a lucky little boy to have her as a Mommy.
