3 weeks old...

Wow!!! I can't believe that MaCee is three weeks old... I wanna cry!  I love babies... I think that I am alot like my grandmother on my moms side, she had 12 children.  I don't think I am going to make it to 12, 4 seems pretty perfect to me, but I do love children and I think if my health would allow it I may go for 12!  It has been a wonderful, crazy, sleepless three weeks, and I have loved every second of it.  Everytime I am up with MaCee in the night I just think I am so lucky to be the one who gets to be up with her!  The boys are loving her they can't keep there little hands off of her.  Dalyn has tried to pick her up a hand full of times which doesn't seem like much but two of those handful he almost dropped her on head.  Avery and Braxton would hold her all day if the could, but Im just alittle nervous that they may forget that there holding her and jump up... dropping her on her head!
One loved little girl!
Our first family picture... not professional but cute still!
MaCee's curls! If anyone has any suggestions on what I should be doing with these curls right now I am open!
Super Daddy!
Soooo sweet.
Little Princess!!!
Cute little Dalyn... He has kind of had a hard time getting kicked out of the baby stop, but I think hes finally coming around to the idea of being a big brother!

Well I know that its not much but its alittle bit of an update on the last three weeks!  We are just soaking it all up... I really don't think that it can get any better.  It is such an amazing feeling to finally meet that little girl that you've known in your heart for so long!!!  Oh by the way I forgot to tell everyone MaCee rolled over today... TWICE!  It may be an accident but if she does it again Im gonna think that she is just a little genius... just like her big brothers!


  1. i'm not sure how I came across your blog (it may have been from AV) but your kids are darling! We have adopted an African American baby boy who has tons of curly hair. My tips are.. pick it out when it is wet so the hair does not get fussy and then use a product called Luster's Pink. I found it at a Sally's Beauty Supply and it works great. It keeps his curls soft and looking nice. Congrats on your new baby!

  2. Hi Heather! I stumbled across your blog while clicking from one adoption blog to another. I hope you don't mind me leaving a comment. I am newbie to the adoption thing. We are just waiting back to get approved through our state (Idaho) and then we are hoping to adopt a little girl. When I saw your pictures I just bawled. Happy Bawling of course. I have 2 boys, and I KNOW they will be the best big brothers just like your little guys. It made my heart all squishy.
    My blog is private but I would be more than happy to email you an invite -
    You have a darling little family. Congratulations!

  3. I'm so glad we got to meet MaCee, she is such a sweetie! You are the best mom ever!!!

  4. I love you attitude about being a mom and enjoying the sleepless nights! You are so right, we are so lucky.

  5. Hi, I too stumbled on your blog from another friend's. We adopted a beautiful biracial baby girl 4 years ago. Adoption is the best! We use a product called CurlyQ off a website called It is a bit pricey, but I'd go back to work to afford it if I had to. Everything else we've tried has dried out and ruined her hair. They also just put a line of it in certain target stores. I haven't tried that one because it's not in our target, but it could be worth a shot. Good luck. I've had so much fun doing my little girls curls. Best of luck to you!
