FIRST…I updated my blog a little with new colors and new headers:). AND after being with WordPress for almost a YEAR now (oh I miss blogger’s ease!) I finally figured out how to add the “follow me” thing that is so easy to use in blogger!!! SO…my computer illiteracy keeps me from knowing how to have a side-bar…BUT it’s in the footer (that big ole space at the bottom of the page)! SO…even if you already keep up with our blog–if you want to just make me smile knowing that you are out there reading (bloggin’ can feel one sided so often!) just click on the members tab–I’m not sure if it even works–but try it and see if it does.
AND by the way–I’m not sure how you like to read your blogs–but if you sign up to follow all the blogs you DO read–then did you know you can go into www.google.com/reader and read ALL of the blogs you follow in ALL at once in ONE convenient location! It updates it daily and you can just go login to your google reader and you don’t have to keep opening and closing all the blogs you like to keep up with!
NOW…those were to just make me smile–because my day started off with poop. Seriously. I had to collect MORE poop samples from BOTH babies—and send them off once again. Now we are crossing our fingers they are negative and there are no extra living organisms in our babies poop. This is something that just comes with international adoption. SO…if you are getting ready to adopt and bring home your baby–get ready to dig through poop and collect samples. Just sayin’…trying to give you real life people.
After delivering poop to the lab, we journeyed to Wally World—a very diverse Wally world…where ITY decided to scream…and Frankie joined him–and I looked like I had kidnapped both babies as I ran through Walmart throwing in formula and baby food. THEN…got to the checkout and realized I didn’t have my wallet–because I had taken it out at the lab to give them our insurance cards so our poop is covered. SO…I proceeded to run out of Wally World with everyone looking at me and my screaming babies–and BACK in Wally World with my wallet…and then back out to the car once again. Are you tired yet? And THIS my friends is why there is no need for me to go to a gym.
After carpool, lunch and the babies went down for a nap–me and the older kiddos played outside. Parker built a ship out of sticks……this is what you get when you don’t have a playset in your backyard and your kids have to use their imaginations. It may or may not be a good thing. Just sayin’. SO…that’s a ship JUST in case you couldn’t tell;).
Parker and Laney both wanted to play with my camera–and Parker (6) took these of me and Loo-bear in my NEW tshirt that Jenny Wallace surprised me with!!!I LOOOOVE the message on it! It says: Live Simply – so others can simply live This tshirt is JUST $15 and the proceeds go towards their adoption!!! You can buy yours here on their blog!

Last but not least—has anyone seen this months Target ads??? I mean SERIOUSLY…who does their new baby model look like??I mean, Frank is already in a movie that is coming out THIS week—we might as well sign ITY up for modeling;). If you look closely you will see this model is a GIRL (she has on teeny little earrings). No wonder I get the comments, “What’s her name??” Richard told me I need to grow ITY’s hair out again like this baby’s.
Now…sign up to win that t-shirt! And have a great week!
