Another week of FIRSTS...

This has been another week of "firsts" for our small family...

Reid attended his FIRST community group at our church...
As you can see...he learned a lot...haha! =)

Now...we had to swallow hard for this next picture... It was Reid's first time to wear UT parafanalia...gulp.  
Before our Baylor friends crucify us...a little background.  My parents plus one of Ben's younger brothers went to UT, so our little man has received quite the orange wardrobe.  And...last night was our FIRST time to leave the little guy while we went out to dinner for Ben's birthday.  Since my parents (Doc & KK) were keeping the little dude, we thought we would be kind enough to dress him in something they would like.   If it's any consolation... Ben pointed out that it looks like Reid is doing a Sic Em' Bears in the above picture.  That's our boy!! =)

As I just said, it was our FIRST time to leave our sweet baby.  It was definitely much harder on us (especially Mom) than it was on Reid...  there were definitely a few tears shed.  But, of course, he did great and didn't even know we were gone.  Thank you so much Doc & KK!  We really enjoyed our fabulous dinner at Bob's Steak & Chop House...YUMM!!

A new pic of our little family...one day Reid will learn to look at the camera...he's still pretty stinkin' cute, though!!! =)

Love the sic em' bears (which I TOTALLY agree that is what he is doing- way to rebel against the orange Reid!) If it makes you feel better- we left Aubrey for Valentines day and cut our evening short after dinner because I missed her so badly! It just isn't the same without our babies with us, is it?!?!?!

Great pics!

Look at you hot momma! Ahh the benefits of adoption! I love em!

It is hard leaving the kids behind, but oh so good for your marriage to take time out! Glad you enjoyed your time!

Yes, I think Reid is very "stinkin' cute!" :-) It seems like he's adjusted well! He's so lucky to have parents like you and Ben!

Hi there,

A friend of mine here in the Woodlands/Baylor friend :) sent me your blog since my husband and I are interested in adopting. I live in the Woodlands north of Houston and would love to talk with you about your attorney experience out of CA. We went through a private adoption last year in Feb. where the birth mom changed her mind after the birth. I was so glad to read your informative blog about adoption, it was really an answered prayer. You can contact me via my e-mail so we can exchange info. I have never blogged before :)
Congrats to you and your husband with the birth of your new baby boy!
Sincerely,
Alicia (Ali) May
