And another 3 1/2 months has gone by without an update.
And there is lots to share.
April was pretty low key but May brought big changes. May brought us our sweet baby girl, Annie Hope.
Rewind - in early February we were notified by our agency that were chosen by another set of birth parents. We met them toward the end of the month and it was considered an official match. We had a chance to meet up with birth mom again in April and met a couple of her children.
And back to May...
Our sweet girl was born on May 16th which also happens to be my sister, Roma's 40th birthday. Happy Birthday, Aunt Roma! We were both present at the birth and birth mom had the nurse put the 2nd bracelet on me so I was able to go in the nursery with Annie. We spent a lot of time visiting with the birth parents and her family and children and their social worker.
Twenty-seven hours after she was born, we were on our way home with our daughter.
Annie is now 11 weeks old and is the sweetest baby. She pretty much only cries when she is hungry and we haven't gotten her bottle to her in a quick enough fashion. She is sleeping 8-10 hours a night and loves her sleep! She is cooing like crazy and smiling. She is trying so hard to be a thumb sucker but can't get it to stay in her mouth - which is just fine with Mommy.
Next up - Annie's adventures!
