This afternoon we went to court to officially make baby boy a permanent member of our family. Whoo hoo! And that means, no more heart stickers on his pictures :o) Yay!
This morning started out with some sweetness courtesy of Sunshine. She brought me a letter to "the judge" she wrote last night after she went to bed :o)
I mean, how sweet is that? She is such a great big sister. I am looking forward to letting Baby Boy read it one day!
We were all very excited that the day to adopt baby boy had finally arrived. The girls talked about it all morning and kept asking if it was "time to go 'dopt' J yet." Both sets of baby boy's grandparents came up for the hearing along with two of his cousins...
The hearing was short and sweet. Hubby and I both "testified" on the stand, along with baby boy :o) Yep, he kinda liked the microphone :o) All in all, the hearing lasted about 10 minutes. We were so thankful it ended with the judge declaring baby boy our son FOREVER!!!
And yes, he is holding the gravel :o)
Today we became a family a SIX...although we have been for 2+ years :o)
After the hearing, we celebrated with yummy yogurt with lots of yummy toppings :o)
On the way home from church tonight, Sweet Pea kept saying, "Hi to my new baby brother" and "Guess what J. Your 'dopted forever." Seriously, I bet she said those two phrases at least 15 times...music to my ears!
