Left field

This post is totally random but I was just thinking about all those unfortunate people in Haiti and my heart just breaks for them. Today I saw a picture of a 6 mos old Haitian baby that had both of his parents die in the (1st)quake. Oh, what I would do to be able to bring him here and adopt him into our family.

Adoption update

Just in case there are still a few of you out there that don't use facebook I thought I should tell y'all what's going on. The adoption agency is going to be increasing their adoption fee by more than double of what it is now. Rumor is this will take place around January so, Jason and I have decided that if Karli will have a sibling we need to take advantage of the original fee which we will be grand-fathered in at. (It's still ridiculous compared to being able to give birth myself and having health insurance to pay for it.) We have turned in our application and had our first interview. Now we will have our background checks done and fingerprints. Once we get a 2nd child (if we are blessed again) the only way we will get more children is by word of mouth so keep your ears open for birth moms looking to place. :)

What we do for fun around here.

I know it's been a long time since my last post, I think I came to the conclusion that my blog was too time consuming and not that many folks were still visiting it. But for those who did request an update, this is for you. :) These are pretty random but looking through my camera these pictures were the ones that made me smile.
As many of you know Jason is a die hard hunter so this pic shouldn't surprise you.

This one is funny to me because my nephew wishes he had a brother to play with so bad but he is stuck with Karli so my sister was over one day and she looks at the kids and then asks me if I put the "Bob the builder" goggles on Karli, I look at her and this is what Ryder had done. (she's a good sport)
Next we had Easter....

Karli's 1st birthday!!!!!! Wow, how this last year has flown by!! The video at the end is hilarious, I think she was on a bit of a sugar high.

And lastly, Karli's 1st trip to the Hogle zoo.
Oh, I can't forget to post about her first time getting her hair done by a professional hairstylist in a real salon. The stylist was absolutely wonderful with kids and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new stylist!

She's off!

video
Karli is 10 months old today and I'm excited to announce that she started crawling this last Thursday. (I was crossing my fingers she would do it before she turned 10 mos) It's the cutest thing because she's a natural, if she sees something she's excited about she does this "sprint crawl" so she can go extra fast- I love it. In this video she saw her dad on the treadmill and kept trying to crawl over to him but unfortunately for her I wouldn't let her get too close. I know it's dark but I had to share.
