Happenings at our house....

Let's see...what's going on in our house...right now Halle is sleeping...HOORAAYYY!  This afternoon we have our VERY LAST home visit with our social worker.  After May 21, 2009 Halle's adoption can be finalized....WAHOO!!  We need to meet with a lawyer for some paperwork and then have it finalized at the courthouse.  YIPPEEEEE!!  Can you tell we're a little excited??  Then...watch here for our amazing Texas adoption journey with PICTURES!  That's right...you'll get to see our beautiful little girl you've heard so much about.  Miss Halle is 7 months old and still a little peanut.  She weighs 14lbs 10oz and is 27 1/4" long.  Still long and lean.  She is crawling all over the place and starting to get into everything.  She has her two bottom teeth and is really working on the top ones.  We don't think it will be long now.  She LOVES solid food.  Forget that silly old bottle.  In fact, the Doctor told us today to feed her anything she wants, well, within reason, no honey, shellfish, eggwhites...you Mom's know the drill.  She says "baabaabaabaa" all the time...Daddy's working with her to change it to "dadadadada" and "mamamama".  We'll see how that goes.  We are looking forward to a few things coming up:

-- Miss Ellie's birth, hopefully, for Dena's sake sooner rather than later.
-- Colby's graduation (we can not believe this kid is old enough to be graduating...sheesh)
-- Camping with the TenKley's & Miss Kristin
-- A visit from Grammies friend
-- The 4th of July (Halle has a really fun sundress to wear)
-- Auntie Heather & Uncles Shaun's wedding in Montana...hopefully, a visit with the Hochhalter's
-- Camping with Mor Mor, Bopa, the Dunn's and Dena's Nana & Papa 

I went through the summer...hopefully, the warmer weather will come soon...Halle has some fun stuff to wear and I'm getting really tired of this rain!!!
