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.

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.

Also, I started selling art work on-line if you would like to check it out. My site is www.emilyhaughery.etsy.com

I can't even tell you how thrilled I am for you, James and your entire family. No baby will ever take the place of Alivia...never...but you will love this little one and he will fill your empty arms. God is sooo good!! And this little guy is going to be so blessed being yours. I can't wait to see the photos!!
Rejoicing with you,

I keep thinking of since you stopped over the other day - since our "second" kiddos will be close in age it will be fun to have them get to know each other. Talk to you soon - still power praying for everyone involved in this blessing!

WOW! Unbelievable!
Y'know when I usually think of God's timing, it's that we have to wait for something...but this! This seems more like you have to "catch up" to God's timing instead of "waiting for it"! HA! Such happy news! Looking forward to more happy news about your son!

Still Praying!

Mary Ann K.

P.S. So good to hear that James is healing, too!
