Happy Birthday Sweet Princess

August 6 - Our baby girl turned 2! Yes...another birthday...4 of our kids are within 5 weeks of each other and daddy ends the birthday dash on Sept. 18. It's crazy, exhausting but lots of fun!

Our little 'S' has quite the story...she was our surprise baby...yes, surprise adoptions do happen. We were fostering for our agency to pass the time as we waited for the referral of our sweet C (We needed some babies to love on :). LOTS of amazing miracles later....S's amazing bmom was certain that we were S's parents and she wanted us to adopt her. She was fully aware that we were waiting for C to come home but she had so much peace with S being our daughter. We were so blown away by her confidence during this difficult situation. We are blessed by this amazing mama and love her so much. We are able to have an open relationship with her and it's absolutelty priceless!!

S is an unbelievably happy little girl. She has the best sense of humor and is just about as ornery as they come...she is such a blast. She has a precious, precious heart and has the sweetest personality!! The joy and laughter she brings to our house is amazing! Baby girl, we love you so much and can't imagine our lives without you. You are our perfect little peanut...our perfect little miracle!

How many mommy's can we have in one house?

So, we (well...I) attempted potty training the girls.'s impossible to potty train 2 at once! S was doing pretty good but C would not sit still for nothing. She was practically doing gymnastics on the potty. So, I decided to just do S with the hopes that C would follow behind.

Well, long story short...we are going to put if off for a couple more months :) The girls just turned 2 so I'm hoping they'll be ready soon.

Soooooooo, yesterday I walked into the sitting room and saw a naked S, a diaper laying on the floor, and next to it a puddle of pee. I told S she needed to use the potty soooo mama C hurded S to the bathroom...literally pushing her...C sat S on the little potty and said, "Go potty." Then C jumped on top of the big potty (seat down), picked up a book to read and encouraged S to go 'peepee'. I wished I had my camera, it was hilarious.

Then last night, C told S it was time for her to go to bed. She gave S her binkie, blanket, prayed with her, and tucked her in. C is only 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They are too much!!
