Today we decided it would be FUN to measure the kiddos to see just how much they have grown...OH MY! Let's start with Sitota: When Sitota came home she was 4 ft 4 inches and weighed 59 pounds. That was January (less than 8 months later) she is 4 ft 9.5 inches and 78 pounds!!!! No wonder I can not keep up on clothes! Moving on to Delson: He was 39 inches and 40 pounds when he came home January 26th (about 7 months ago) he was 40 pounds and 43 inches tall!! That explains why his pants from last school year fit more like shorts :) Micah - Well he is now just over 37 inches and still hanging around 27 pounds.
They are all happy and healthy and we are very blessed. Things have been calming down a little and we are starting to have more good days and really starting to get the hang of our families sudden changes. We will be completing Sitota's re-adoption and Delson's adoption this up coming Friday! Going to be an exciting week!!! Have a Blessed Week - Melissa

Random Pictures (at last!)

Surgery and Court Dates

Yesterday was a big day for us. We started by heading to the hospital for Delson to have his circumcision done. Everything went well and though he was wanting to do EVERYTHING yesterday (like ride his bike!) we tried to keep him calm and resting. He is sore today, but that was to be expected.
We also got everything filed for court to do Sitota's re-adoption and Delson's adoption! Both hearings will be held on September 3rd and we are planning a BIG party on September 19th to celebrate our new Party of 5!! I will be posting some updated pics soon!

Really Bad Blogger!

I know...almost a full month without a post. I should be ashamed! We have had a very busy month. Story times at the library, a visit to grandma and grandpa Troedel's house, my grandmother's passing, camping with a fellow adoptive family, and lots of things in between. We have also been dealing with several behavioral issues with Delson that I will get into at a later date. Anyhow, I will try to post some pics soon and keep you all better informed!! Chow for now - Melissa
