Big Things for July

July was a busy month for our family. We bought a new house, and moved from Alabama to DC. Leo turned 6 months old. We finalized his adoption. We painted every room in our new house, and unpacked a LOT of boxes. We went to Utah for a week for Leo's sealing and baby blessing. Jack started his new job. It's been a wonderful and busy month.

We'll post some photos of the new house, just as soon as we're finished with a few more projects...

Families are Forever

Last week we took Leo to the Salt Lake Temple and were sealed together as a family. It was such a special day. We thank God for blessing us with Leo, and that we are now an eternal family. We are so blessed.

Oh Happy Day

Our adoption of Leo finalized today. We could not be more thrilled! We are so blessed.
We thank God for all the little miracles that have happened over the last week (and months) to make this day possible. And we thank all our friends and family for their prayers and support.
We love our baby Leo, and are so happy to be a family.
Happy happy day!

Videos of the boy

Jack has been busy with the video camera the last few weeks. Here are some of his favorites:

Leo has become increasing ticklish lately, which is really fun for us. Sometimes just the anticipation of being tickled will make him laugh... it's so cute!

Leo goes through phases where he'll blow raspberries... and then forget about it for a few weeks. Then he will suddenly rediscover the art of raspberry blowing, and will do it all day long!

Leo still goes crazy in his jumper. He's learned to really get those arms pumping, and legs jumping... he gets a major workout.
