Pictures of Noah

We have recently received two updates of Noah with pictures. The first was a surprise visit at his foster mother's house on March 11th. The second was his 4 month doctor's check up on March 18th. He was up to 16 lb 3 oz. The doctor's report says that Noah is quite vocal, laughs out loud, and is developing well. Here are the pictures.

This year in preparation for Easter we dyed eggs with Joel. He had a great time dipping the eggs in all the colors. On Easter day we went to church in the morning and Jason's family, along with some visiting friends, came over for the afternoon/evening. It was a good day. There was a three year old boy for Joel to play with and he had a grand time.

Hannah's Valance

Here is a picture of the valance that Shannon made for Hannah's room. We have received and put together some of the furniture for Hannah's room, but we are still waiting on one piece.

Getting Rooms Ready

We have been getting the rooms ready for the kids to come home. We have set up Joel's old crib in his room for Noah. We have ordered furniture for Hannah's room that we hope will be in this week. Last week Shannon made a lampshade for Hannah's room out of receiving blankets that match her crib bedding. This week she is working on a valance for the window out of the same material. Here is picture of the lamp shade and we will post more as we finish things.

New Pics of Hannah

Here's the latest pics of little Hannah Faith. They were taken at her 5 month doctor's appointment last week. She now weighs 14lbs 8ozs which was the exactly the same amount as Noah at his 3 month appointment. The doctor's report said she can now roll from her stomach onto her back and that she tries to roll over completely. She attempts to grab whatever is nearby and tries to put it in her mouth.
