I am 34 years old and have suffered through 2.5 years of infertility including 2 angel babies. My dream has always been to be a mom, and I never imagined that dream would be so difficult to attain. I am married to a wonderful man who is the best husband and daddy anyone could hope for. Our dreams came true when we adopted our son, Jackson, in August of 2010. Our lives became even more blessed and full when our daughter, Addison, was born in February 2011. Please join us on our journey - where surprises are just part of the fun!
Both of my babies are on the verge of big things. Jackson has taken steps on his own in the past couple of days! He started taking about 2 steps between things and then tonight he took a full 5 steps going from the ottoman to his play table. He just balances himself standing and then takes off! It is so amazing to watch. I am continuously in awe of my little man. Addison is also on the verge of mobility. She has been getting up on her hands and knees and rocking for the past few days. She can scooch around the floor pretty competently. She is only 5+ months! Jackson did not even come close to crawling until around 7+ months! I'm sure Addison is more advanced because she spends all of her time on her tummy. Jackson could never do that because of his reflux. No matter the "whys," I am just loving every single moment of watching them grow. It is, of course, bittersweet. But to see them happy and thriving makes me love every day of my life with them. Truly. Every. Day. I give it less than a month and I will have 1 walker and 1 crawler on my hands. And then I will REALLY be busy (I thought I had been up until now!).
