a new little brother

We've had a wonderful Christmas, and I'd love to share more about it, but mostly I'm just so excited to introduce you to my new little brother, Jamie.  My parents have recently felt very strongly that this little boy needs to be a part of our family.  The adoption process has been speeding along and although it'll still be many months before he's here in Spokane with my family, we feel so grateful to know that it's not "if" but "when".   And that is the best Christmas present we all could have asked for.

And although we're not together today, I know I have an eternity of  
anniversaries with this wonderful man of my dreams.

so big

Well we made it to Spokane after a long day of traveling.  Last Saturday we woke up at about 4:00am (Eastern Time) and landed at 5:00pm (Pacific Time) and finally went to bed around 11:00pm.  It was a seventeen hour day.  {We're so glad we don't have to do it again for another month}  But we survived and we're oh so happy to be here.  Jeremy is still in Baltimore and will be for another week and a half... :(  Stinkin' finals.   We miss you babe!

Madeline is absolutely loving all the attention she's getting from Grandmas, Grandpas, Aunts, Uncles and cousins.  And if you don't believe me just watch the video:

{Big Thanks to my dad for catching it on video}

Happy Tuesday everybody!
