Ok, so my blog will become private soon, I swear. It's a bit more of a project than I thought it would be and blogger only lets me have 100 readers and, to my surprise, my hotmail inbox is pushing that amount of requests! It's been so heart warming to hear from all our readers and thanks for all the sweet notes you put on your emails. :)
So as you guessed from my title, I turned 27 yesterday. We had a great day with Declan. He had his first check up and weight 7 lb 6 oz already (he was 7 lb 1 oz at birth, lost a little before discharge from the hospital). So he's a big, growin' boy! He still has what the doctor considers colic and our hot button screaming crazy times are in the evening and night time. He's happier during the day. No sleep for us, but sleep is overrated anyways.
Our Bible study had a little get together last night. Here are the cakes that my friend K made:
Here's Declan and the birthday girl:
It was nice that Dec met everyone in Bible study. We were the only couple without kids so now the day care is complete!! (that's a joke for those in our group) ;)
More later...we have a busy weekend...b-day party @ my parents tonight, Husker game tomorrow (not sure if we'll watch it here or not), my nephew's b-day party Sunday and possibly church that morning.
*EDITED later to add...* I forgot to address Declan's name in this last post. People have been asking about it. First of all, it's pronounced "Deck-lan". It's Irish and mean's "full of goodness". Mark was watching a movie a couple years ago and heard the name Declan. He told me about the name and it's been in our heart ever since. I always felt like we'd have a son so, all through fertility treatments and the adoption process, I prayed for him by name. :)
