Sneak Peak

OK, yes, I'm alive. For the 3 of you that still check in on us, I'm not even going to explain what has been going on the past few weeks. I'm even getting called out by people for slacking. November has been absolutely crazy for us ... I hope to have a picture review soon. I hope.

And HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We have SO much to be thankful for....so much! We are so blessed. I am so thankful for the family that God has given us ... and for the gift of His Son so that we could be ADOPTED into His family. Adoption is His story ... we've just joined into that story for our family.

Oh, and just a quick tidbit ... our boy is walking! If he's up on his feet, that is his choice for transportation now ... it's so fun to watch him stagger around and he's so proud of himself ... and it's not like we give him any praise for his amazing accomplishment or anything :)

A couple weeks ago, Amber met up with Angela and did pics for Silas. Angela is part of Celebrating Adoption and she does free sitting fees and proofs for adopted families ... pretty cool give-back by her. Nevertheless, we got some sneak peaks yesterday from her....he was not feeling good that day ... in knowing that, she did an amazing job. He ended up with a virus that caused blisters in his throat, fever, etc, etc. Thank GOD we're passed that and our boy is back to normal now. OK, enjoy....


"Seriously, mommy, another photo shoot?"


I think this one is our favorite picture cause she caught him in a expression that we haven't gotten previously

He's got his innocent look going on here.

See why I'm so blessed?

I really like this one too....
