Congratulations to the New Mommies and Daddies!

It's referral time in China adoption-land. All over the world, agencies have received referrals of beautiful baby girls and boys and have given the good news to their thrilled Mommies and Daddies!

I will never ever forget the excitment of the day we received our referral for Huai Shuang, now Kelsey Frances Shuang. (See Jan 25th posting for the blow-by-blow)

Sweet days like this make me long to be in the adoption mix again...And Kelsey has been really great the last two nights and sleeping like a champ!

Days like Monday when our adorable girl threw all her dinner on the floor in a tantrum and was pissy all evening made me doubt I have any patience left to be a Mommy and I was SO happy to only have one child. That was one sticky icky mess!

Even the weather is perfect today...the sky is blue and it's sunny, but cool in the low '70's. I wish I was gardening today!

Kurt will be home this evening after almost 2 weeks on the road (he came home on the weekend). We miss him dreadfully and honestly, I need a parenting break! Kelsey wanted him last night and was calling Dada up the stairs, so I made her climb them to see if he was there. She was disappointed that he wasn't, but we changed into PJ's and snuggled and she went down to sleep at 8pm. Mommy fell asleep at 8:30 (told you I need a break!)

Take care and congratulations again to the new families!
