Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

Here he is

Here are some of the first shots of our little man, Griffin Allen Haughery. He was born October 18th at 5:04 and weighed in at 10 lbs 1.5 ozs and is 21 inches long. His older sister (our Alivia) was 9lbs 15 ozs and 21 inches long. We are loving every second of him.

The birth mom changed her mind AGAIN!!! We are going to pick up our baby this afternoon. We are so excited. Pray because she has 30 days to change her mind back. But we are not thinking of that and just rejoicing in this blessing.

Griffin Allen Haughery was born yesterday (Oct. 18th) at 5:04pm. He is a healthy and content baby. We instantly fell in love with all 10 lbs and 2 ounces of him. Unfortunetly, 15 min. before he was to be discharged to come home with us the birth mother changed her mind. We are so lost and undone again.

Update number 2

Things in the Haughery household are moving right along. We are 3 weeks post break tomorrow and James seems to be healing nicely. He is getting around well on his crutches and has been driving for almost 2 weeks (good thing it was his left leg). Stairs are still a bit tricky and he is really looking forward to the post crutches days.

We got some exciting news this week. We have been going to classes for foster to adoption and got a call about 2 weeks ago about a birth mother. Of course we were very interested and we met her on Tuesday. She liked us and is going to give us the baby when it is born!! She had a sonogram late in the pregnancy that said it was a boy so we are super excited. She is due OCTOBER 30th (as in 21 days from today!!!) and in the past has gone early so we could have a baby in less than 3 weeks. I think I still am in shock. It definelty doesn't seem real yet. I'll keep updating and hopefully have photos to post soon.
