A little bit of recently....

Planking and drooling, that's some talent!
Figured out his name, by himself, without us prompting or showing
Some last days with two teeth...top ones are swollen and ready to drop any day.
Caleb's best bud Sadie and younger brother Tristan, BBQ on our roof
Starting some solids...so far, sweet potatoes and bananas are her favorite.
Enjoying Daddy time
Crawling everywhere, gaining speed.
We hosted and made pizza for 10 adults and 8 (young!) kids...It was a lot of fun and a lot of food. These were our 7 pizzas waiting for toppings and baking.  And this is my kitchen and computer station, smile. Now you can picture me blogging! And cooking dinner....
P.S. Don't ever let me hear you say your home is too small to host people or large groups at...we live in an apartment and we regularly have large groups over....It isn't about having "a big house," people.

First pair of jeans.
Baby jeans are just so cute!!
Sleeping beauty baby!
This is not a regular scene in our home these days, the past 6-8 weeks have been pretty miserable in the sleep and nap department...a great prayer request!
Babysitting for friends, no sleep over is complete without games we were told!
Or bedtime stories...and grumpy looks, apparently.
I have never met someone with a bigger imagination....And he's always got a plan and a story.
Check out that ladle!
He "reads" to her (aka recites the books he has memorized)!
My heart melts!
Sibling love.
 Entertaining Sissy!
"Protecting" himself from Sissy...
She's thinking, "hmmm...how can I get past this one...!?"
His suit from Auntie Renee's wedding is his favorite thing to wear...so he "can be just like Daddy." Not sure what we'll do when he outgrows it....My handsome men of the house.
And our little lady.
Keeps me laughing!
Korean American Friendship Festival 2013
I got out for an all-day adventure in Seoul with some dear girl friends.  It was great to "get away", go shopping, enjoy some nummy food (we tried Kimchi fries!! I'll take you if you come visit me!), go shopping and enjoy good company.  It was a gorgeous fall day and a refreshing, fun time "away."
You only have 13 days left to buy one of these limited edition tshirts and help us fund our adoption!
We have sold 52 shirts and have 198 to go to reach our goal.

T shirts for sale!

We are excited to announce the next phase in our adoption fund raising. Steve designed this T-shirt and we are selling it to benefit our adoption. A percentage of each T-shirt will be sent directly to Small World Adoption Agency, on our behalf, and that percentage goes up as we sell more T-Shirts. If we reach our goal, we will make almost 60% of the profits. Thank you for considering our fundraiser and if you would like, please feel free to share on your own blog, facebook page, twitter account etc. We really appreciate your support...as I write, we have 22 days to sell 220 more shirts.

Curious? Interested?  You can check out our design and our fundraising page by clicking HERE.

This is what Steve wrote about our shirts:

Design Details

The design is meant to show the importance of Child adoption to our family while also reminding anyone who is in Christ of their Heavenly adoption.

The verses placed under the heart beat are there to remind us that the HEARTBEAT of every Christian is our adoption as into God's family. This adoption was so impactful that God says our HEARTS have been changed to call out to God as father. "Abba! Father!"

The words "This Family's Heartbeat" are very dear to us. Our families HEARTBEAT has always been the place we have as sons of God, and more recently our HEARTS have been molded to what we see in scripture as at the very HEART of God; caring for orphans.

So Child Adoption has become a new part of our families HEARTBEAT! Please help us in our pursuit of our child by purchasing one of these T-Shirts!

        Then once you have purchased yours,
                   spread the word for us!
