Five Minute Project || Waking the Baby One Year Later

Lifestyle Personal

The other morning – at 6:45am – my littles were being especially sweet and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to sneak in and complete a little 5 minute project photo session with them. These photos were taken almost exactly one year after the photos from this post – and I really can’t believe the difference that one year makes.

These two little ones have certainly changed in that short year, but I can honestly say that they still adore each other as much as they did one year ago. Briggs still loves to sneak in a greet his sister as soon as he hears her stirring and he often insists that he must be the one to give her her first kiss of the day. As time keeps marching on, and these babies grow and grow, I hope that their love for one another is one thing that never changes.

So it seems that we are well into the month of May. Around here in the Kyle house, that's pretty significant - because this month, Mr. Briggs will turn two. Missing his birthday last year was a little bit hard for me, so I've really been looking forward to celebrating WITH him this year.

While you are sleeping
Tonight, while you are sleeping, we will be meeting our boyand kissing his cheeks, and counting his toes, and measuring his eyelashes, because I swear they are six inches long. If all goes as planned, he should be in our arms at about midnight Colorado time. So, all you mamas who are up in the middle of the night "playing" with your little ones, know that you'll have me for company tonight. :)

So, what now?
Many have asked us what the next steps are from here. Well, the counting continues as we are now waiting for a court date. Our best guess is that it will be 3-5 months from now. We will travel to Ethiopia for that court date, appear before the judge, and officially adopt this little guy. At that point, we will come back home (without baby!) and then return to Ethiopia 3-6 weeks later to bring. him. home. For now, we are playing the name game. We haven't made any decisions yet, but if you are looking for a baby name book at a library in our area, you'll have to come to my house. I have them all. Sorry about that.
