Future Mommy

Kaiya will be a great mom!! She is compassionate and love to surprise others! I asked her if she could keep an eye on Liv while I jumped into the shower. Of course she was happy to watch her, she loves to babysit ( she is 7 and does it for me when I do small things like jump in the shower). Kaiya wanted to surprise me by having her room clean and did not know what to do with Liv so this is what she came up with ( she has already mastered multitasking!)

Officially ours!

What an awesome day! Sept 22nd 2009! Liv is officially ours! I did not realize that court would be such an emotional experience for me. We went over all of the questions my attorney would ask me and I thought piece of cake! When we were at court the judge asked me how our lives have been since Liv was placed with us! The tears started coming and I could barley talk my mind and heart were filled with all sorts of emotions and thought All I could say was " we love her so much and could not imagine life with out her." Next it was Matts turn he could not even talk he was crying like a baby and said that he loves her just as much as all of his other children.
I wish I could have shared more! I know she was meant to be in our family. Liv is a little Angel sent to us from Heaven. ( A lot of people ask me where she is from and that is exactly where she came from Heaven!) She is so sweet and good nature d. She wakes up every morning just talking and gooing! She rarely complains only when she is really hungry or when her diaper is soiled (she gets really mad, she does not like to be dirty). She is sitting on her own and rolling all around. She a lover , gives kisses and likes to cuddle. Taj , Kaiya ,and Marley love her to pieces and hug and squeeze her all the time. Liv loves this she just smiles and seems very content to let them throw her around! Taj was so cute, he said that morning " Mom I really, really want to keep Livvy can we?" My heart melted!. I am so thankful that she is official ours in the state or governments mind, but I can not wait until Matt and I kneel across the alter in the Temple with all of our children and seal her to us for eternity!
I want to thank Alice for her selfless decision to give Liv a better life! We will give her the best life we possibly can and love her unconditionally! we love you Alice thank you for our precious gift from Heaven!

The Mountains make me feel Alive

The Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the crispness of the air, the cool breeze on my face, the smell of rain and the dew. The beauty of change. I love the feeling of romance and the holidays to come! Family and friends and the beginnings of memories!
Matt and I had our first date on Oct 2nd, and the best date ever , a hike in the mountains. This past weekend when we went backpacking reminded me of our courting and all of the things I love about him. The butterflies in my stomach every time I was with him, or even thought of him made me tingle! He is tall, handsome, has big strong hands, amazing abs, and nice lips! He has a great energy about him and loves adventure , he loves to serve others and is tender hearted. I knew when I married him life would not be boring! I am looking forward to the many adventures life will bring!

Our beautiful Alice AKA Baby Mamma

First time we met Alice our birth moms real name, she is ok to share. I was nervous, what should we say, what should we talk about, I hope she likes us, what if she change her mind? We met at Red lobster funny cuz she dose not really like seafood:, but she was brave and tried some of Matts Scallops. Matt and I got to the restaurant before Alice I had butterfly's in my tummy and could hardly wait to meet her. Cindy our case worker was there and helped us feel more relaxed ( thanks Cindy you are amazing!) Alice finally arrived about ten minutes later she was so pretty and very nervous. she would not look at us until about half way through the dinner! WE had a hard time understanding her at first because she has a cute Georgian accent. She did not ask too many question! we asked most of them so we could get to know her better! One question that we did ask her is why did she pick us! She said that our profile was just like the others but we just caught her eye that there was this powerful feeling that she could not explain! ( Matt and I were both teary eyed) The lord knows where these children are going! Livvy is meant to be ours and Alice is meant to be our birth mom! Alice is so sweet and very smart! She likes to write poetry, play basketball, photography and loves the beach. My kind of girl! We asked what she would want us to tell our little girl about her? She said she would think about it and let us know! After dinner we decided we wanted to get together again before baby was born so she could meet our kids and we could meet her lilttle boy! we decided that Classic skate would be the perfect place!

We met at Classic skate. Alice had an amazing gift for us she had put together a scrapbook and a three page letter to livvey telling her how much she is loved! It is amazing and I can't wait to give it to Olivia one day! We had so much fun and instantly became friends. Its getting late and I am so tired stay tuned for the day Livvy is born!
