The Waiting Game...

Today has been pretty disappointing for me.  Yesterday, Jacob turned 15 months old.  The disappointing part was that we haven't had an update on our little guy in 3 months.  I just worry about him and guess I got too use to getting regular updates.  I reminded myself that we have been very fortunate to have gotten the updates we have gotten.  Many adopting families don't have as much as we do - so on that note I am thankful.  Waiting is hard and in the mean time I have been busying myself with basic nesting activities for any Mom to be.  I have been fixing up his bedroom and preparing for his arrival.  His little bed is ready for him and I also have pictures all over the house of him (just like our other children).  He even has a 1 year photo setup in his room.  I even made his adoption story book.  Waiting is hard, but I know in the end it will be worth it.  I know Jacob will come home in God's timing and it will be the right time for him and our family.

Pumpkin Patch Time

We had so much fun this past weekend celebrating the arrival of Fall at Gentry Farm with good friends.  I believe next year though we are going to have to find a bigger area to take a picture of our kids at - as you can see our children fill the bed of that pickup truck.  

The weather was great too!  Perfect weather - not to hot or too cold, just right.  Sometimes it's hard to imagine that next year Jacob should be sitting in the middle of the gang.  It will be so sweet to have him here to hold and love on - we can't wait!  We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family surrounding us during this time (thanks so much - waiting is hard).  I know I didn't give birth to Jacob, but I already feel so much love for him - it's hard to explain (he is my son).
