Tyler has determined that “HO-key” is a game that is played with a round, orange ball. You score when the ball hits the front door, without hitting the floor first. The game is played using “ice skapes”, made by standing on alphabet refrigerator magnets and sliding on the tile.
Tyler’s first time sledding. What fun we had!
On November 20, 2011 Carter was placed with us for adoption. He was born November 14, 19 1/4″ long, weighing 6 pounds 3 ounces. His birth mother didn’t pre-arrange to place him for adoption, so we found out he would be ours on Friday night, and picked him up Sunday morning. Very different from the month’s notice we had been expecting. He did have to spend a few days in cradle care (a foster home for newborns about to be adopted), while a few issues were sorted out, before we could bring him home.
He’s been home for two weeks now, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Tyler is infatuated with his baby brother, “Tarter”. The first thing he asks each morning is “Where is Tarter?”, he is eager to share his most precious toys, and always wants to be in the same room. They are going to be great friends!
I am taking 8 weeks off work to be with Carter, then Ed is going to take a couple, before he starts school with the same teacher Tyler had at that age. I’m loving the time we’ve had so far, and looking forward to a magical holiday season.
