Niko is finally ALL ours!!!

We went to court on Monday and finalized Niko's adoption. He is now officially Niko Mays and we are so excited :) The whole process only took about 10 minutes but both Niko and Jagger managed to scream the courtroom down and the judge said "you two have your hands full don't you!!". To that i said "Yes!!!". But they are such a blessing and we feel so fortunate to have our beautiful boys. The adventure continues :)

More pics of the boys :)

LONG time no post and a lot has happened!!!!

OK so since i last posted, i had a beautiful baby boy named Jagger Dean. He is now 6 weeks old.
He was born Sept. 18 at 10:22am with 20 minutes of pushing. He weighed 7lbs 3ozs and was 20 1/2 inches long.

Niko has also gotten really big. He is now almost 19 months old.

Tim and I are definitely feeling the need for a new house with a back yard.

It's been tough having two kids under 2 but i am trying to adapt as best as i can. I've only been a Mum for 9 months!!!! Sleep is a coveted thing as all you mommies know! I can't wait to be able to sleep for even 5 consecutive hours. It will be a while till that happens. I just dream of the future when my boys can play together and communicate. That in itself would be a blessing :) But i know that each new stage will have it's pros and cons. So i am trying to enjoy each phase for it's pros. I also have to remember that this is what i wanted and what many want and cannot have. So i choose to feel blessed :)

I will try to keep this updated more often. It's hard though when someone is pulling on your pants leg or screaming for more milk, diapers, naps, house duties, etc... Until next time...

22 weeks pregnant :)

I am 22 weeks pregnant with a BOY!!!! I can feel him rolling around and kicking. I spent the first 17 weeks throwing up everyday. That was not fun!! But i didn't care because it meant everything was on track. That has gone now and i am enjoying it more. I'm still tired because i am running around after my 13 month old son who has decided to cut out one of his naps. It's getting harder to lift him as he is nearly 25lbs and my belly is getting bigger. When our baby is born in September, they will be 17 months apart. I am pretty nervous about how it will all work out with sleep schedules for all of us. I'm not sure which room Tim will sleep in at first, but because he is an ER nurse, he can't afford to be woken up every 4 hours and go to work sleep deprived. We will eventually have to move to a 3 bedroom house. So much to think about in the next 4 months. Anywho, here are a couple of pictures of the baby.
