Re-Adoption! (and happenings over the last week)

On Friday, October 16th at 9am, we had a court hearing for Silas' readoption. Abrham Troy Lucht is now legally Silas Abrham Lucht! We will be receiving his Tennessee birth certificate in the next few weeks. Below is a picture with the judge who was great. Funny story ... we went up there and the judge asked if he could hold Silas. I hand him over and within 2 seconds, Silas starts wailing. Judge says, "That wasn't a good call by daddy" and hands him back to Amber where Silas quiets down immediately. I'm just glad the hearing was over by that time :) After the picture, the judge asked everyone in the courtroom to give us a hand. It was kinda funny having everyone clap for us...


And here's a recap of the rest of this past week.


Last Monday was Silas' birthday - we celebrated last Saturday but we couldn't hold out cake on his actual birthday ... think he's happy about the cake?

Friday night we went to a bonfire .... it was COLD. Here is Silas bundled up with our Bible Study leader. Silas LOVED the fire ... he would have stared at it all night...

Silas loves hoods ... he would keep them on even while inside the house and would pull it over his eyes ... cracks me up!





More hoodies ... and he's a fan of pulling my shoes out of the cubbie holes in our closet.

One of his favorite things to do is to open and shut doors ... here he is shutting said closet door.


Saturday morning we did an autism walk and it was like 40 degrees and windy. So, we bundled up and headed out ... Silas was so stoic in his stroller.

The walkers...

Amber and Silas after the walk ... he fell asleep early in the walk so he musta been warm. :)


Sweet dreams lil' boy...

We had a try-on of his costume ... we think he's the cutest cow ever :)

The cow tail :)

Silas posing with his new jeans and vest...

CUTE kid

Today, we went to a pumpkin farm with families in our adoption group at church. Silas had a blast.

We LOVE this family ... check out their blog and you'll see how cute their kids really are. "A" loved hanging around Silas. She was walking near him and her brother said 'Watch out for Silas.' And she responded "I'm watching him ... I love Silas" (insert big smile here)

Look at those eyes

How cute is she!?


This is one of my favorite pics of the day ... sibling love.

"A" wanted to hold him for the pic.

"D" then said "I wanna hold Silas"

SILLY FACE!

Lookin' up ... the boy is saying 'up' all the time now.

Tractor-drivin' Ethiopian

Hanging out with the pumpkins

Couldn't decide which picture I liked better :)

Three siblings out hunting pumpkins...

Silas loved the goats ... and chickens ... and turkeys ... and cows ...

Silas and I by the cows

So the other family thought it would be 'good' to get Silas a sucker ... I shoulda let them hold him :) ... he liked it and he wasn't too sticky afterwards...

Our new family picture

Silas in the middle of big pumpkins

Again, couldn't figure out which one I liked the best...
OK, gotta show ya a couple videos as well...


We got Silas this little climbing Little Tykes slide and he loves it. Cracks me up how he would whine at the bottom and then 2 seconds later be excited climbing back up...


Silas now has a "fake" cough ... he'll usually do it and laugh at himself :)


Silas checking himself out in the mirror and giving himself some kisses...

Alright, time to hit the hay ... have a great week!

Love the videos. We have that same climber/slide but its outside. Noah also loves to kiss himself in the mirror.
I hope at some point in our lifetime we can do his readoption.

Congratulations! So glad everything is signed, sealed, and delivered!
And we had SO much fun with y'all Sunday. I love the photos. My kids love your sweet boy...he is a frequent topic of conversations! And sorry about the sucker...I couldn't resist! But you did very well at keeping the stickiness down...much better than I ever did. Mine always got it in their hair!
