Life as We Know It… (Where’s Frank?!)

Remembering back…

As some of you may remember–we did all kinds of fun and crazy things last Fall as we were jumping through the hoops of our home study and our Ethiopian dossier. One of the many crazy things we did…was jump in a movie! So, we’ve waited an ENTIRE year for it to finally come out! While you might only see the rest of us in the birthday part scene at the end of the movie…you just might see Frankie baby a bit more at the end. I just couldn’t help but share this commerical advertisement with you all;). See if you can find Frankie baby in this one…

They pulled Frank and my bestfriend’s daughter Lexi for a little more shooting time. And we ended up hanging with Katherine Hiegel and Josh Duhamel a few extra days…as well as getting to go to the after filming party with the entire crew. It was so much fun…and just a fun memory to all do together! Here are a few pictures (taken with my phone) from our time. No cameras on the set–so these had to be taken incognito:)

Here is Laney-Loo pressed and dressed for the birthday party scene…

Not sure the face she is making here with Katherine…but this was at the after filming party late on the last night of shooting…

And here is Frankie baby during shooting…

Frank was a HIT among all the cast. Here he is bonding with the director…

And here momma was stuck as a background person in the living room…while if you look closely you can see Frankie baby being passed around the cast…here in Josh Duhamel’s arms…
Oh wait! You can’t see him? I could hardly see him either–and it was almost MIDNIGHT when we were filming…but he was a rock star and was as happy as a lark! I think he was actually in shock with all the lights and people. Okay, so this comes out October 8th…and you’ll have to sit there all the way to the end to see him in the movie for I’m sure just a few minutes;). BUT so fun none the less!!!

This was SUCH a fun memory to do with my bestfriend Kelly (WHO lives just about 20 minutes from me now…and who I have been friends with since the 7th grade!!!) The two of us are ALWAYS up for anything fun…and so thankful to have a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants side-kick!

OKAY…and on to BIGGER and GRANDER THINGS…TOMORROW is our BIG debut at the PHYSICAL THERAPIST!!! Are YOU as curious and excited as I am to see what our physical therapist has to say about our crawler?! SOOO can’t wait to show her our little miracle! And we are still delighting here in the newness of this fun phase!!! He is ALL over the place making new discoveries…and I am so, so, so thankful for his continued progress and healing. Thank you for being a part of our lives and for praying!!!

I remember the post. Hard to believe that was a year ago?! Loved the trailer and spotting baby Frank! How cool is that?!
I am also sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for that PT report. If Frank is your MOVIE STAR … that makes ITY your ROCK STAR!
Cheering you on from Hong Kong,

So fun! I was actually thinking of you on the way to India. Sitting in the airplane on the way there w/time to watch a movie, I was trying to remember the title. Ended up watching a good movie (can’t remember the title now) but it obviously wasn’t yours…LOL!
