We are seeing spots!

Our sweet baby has hives! The poor thing is covered. :(
We feel so bad for her. They told us that sometimes there is no way to know why a baby suddenly breaks out in hives. She is getting 1/3 of a teaspoon of Benadryl every six hours. We are keeping everything off of her (clothes) and just laying her on her diaper. Poor, sweet girl. In three to four days, we should have our sweet baby back.

In good news, we got the final piece of information that we were waiting on for Joy's adoption. Now it's just up to the attorneys to figure out Texas and California law and make her ours!!! We are hoping to be final before the family reunion in July.

Happy Easter!

What a joyous day! Easter morning! I love the hope and promise of Easter morning!
One day we will be resurrected and be united as a family! Wonderful day!
And the promise of freedom from stain and sin - wonderful day!
Here are some pictures of Joy! They are fuzzy, but she is smiling! One of them she is playing with her feet. :)

9 Month Check-Up

Joy went to see Dr. Sandifer for her nine month check-up.
We were able to say that she says dada and makes a smacking sound!
Yeah!!! Two developmental milestones (but I won't tell you out of how many :) )!
She is 16 pounds 10 ounces and a grand 26 inches long!!
She only had to have two shots - Heb and polio. She is doing great!
