living the american dream...

We now have a girl...and a boy. What more could we ask for?



It's amazing how just adding one more child to the clan makes our family feel so complete - well maybe complete isn't the right word, because we are far from being done - but it suddenly feels to me like we're a real family. There's nothing better than that feeling...knowing that you are part of a special unit of people who love you...and having people to love and care for in return. I can't think of anything better than this "american dream" I am living. I feel so blessed.

I'm so glad that you told my family about your blog, so we can see how little Asher is changing. He is a perfect baby!!! I'm so happy for you all! Thank you for saying such beautiful things about my sister! I also could not be more proud of her - she is amazing!! And this little guy is incredibly blessed to have you two as his parents!
I posted about this on my blog, but I didn't post any pictures of Asher, or put your names. This has been such a bittersweet experience for us, but I don't think there could be a happier ending! I admire you two so much for your faith, and endurance through the many trials you've suffered. If I wasn't able to raise my children, I would also want you to do it.

Oh! I 've been thinking about you guys so much! I'm so glad to see the pictures. He's perfect. And Ruby looks so happy to have someone who understands the "binkie" thing. :)

You're right. Nothing brings happiness and fulfillment into our lives like posterity. We love you guys and send you lots of well wishes as you enjoy these first magical months with your new little one.

I so feel the same way about feeling more family-ish (which you probably already know since I wrote about it too). Isn't it the best? Such a darling photo!

Nicole he is absolutely beautiful. It was so good to see your family and meet little Asher. As for the sleeping 8 hours you are one lucky lady I don't think Bosotn did that untill he was 3 months.
