6 months...really?

It is not easy taking such a long break from blogging and then trying to jump back in but here goes.  I haven't been blogging because I have chosen to not miss the moments.  You know...the moments when you see your child swim on his own for the first time.  The moments when you are asked if The Hulk is stronger than God and Jesus which leads to more in depth truths.  Moments of scavenger hunts while taking a walk and building sand castles at the lake.  Moments that I would never miss to stop and write words.  I do like to share our lives especially with family who live far but we have had too many adventures to take a break.  We have been quite busy with birthdays, weddings, trips to the mountains, a trip to Mexico and many playdates with new friends.  Those of you who are friends with me on facebook have seen that I finally dumped all my pictures on my page to get caught up.  It has been so much fun having all of these experiences and now we are trying to squeeze in a few more adventures before my Sawyer heads off to kindergarten in August (tear).

Aunt Lyn's wedding

I am so excited for the experiences he will get to enjoy while in school but he has been my little at home buddy for 5-1/2 years and thinking of him going off to school makes me a little sad.  He, on the other hand, is so excited.  We had his kindergarten assessment and he did great.  Now whenever we pass by his school he tells us he's going to school there.  He will do amazing I just know it, but until then I'm soaking up every bit of him I can get and trying to schedule little family trips before our life gets a little more hectic.

My sweet and lovable Sawyer

So while I've been busy with my own family my little surro-girl has gone and turned 6 months old already.  I can't believe it has already been 6 months since I gave birth to her and handed her over to her parents.  It is so true that days seem to go slow but weeks, months, years seem to fly by.  That has never been more apparent than when I watch children grow.  She is such a little cutie and I wish I lived closer but I will take what I can get.  Fatima is great about sending me pictures and videos to keep me up to date with what she is doing.  She is trying to crawl and will be up and running in no time, I'm sure.  I was able to make a trip down to see all of them in April and it was so wonderful to get to hold her again.  They are hopefully going to be coming up to Fresno in July so I'll get to see them again.  Until then, I'll keep enjoying pictures and videos.  Here are some pictures for you to enjoy:

Finally, I had previously talked about things that might be coming up for our family but couldn't share them yet.  Well, that was because we were slowly taking the necessary steps to get approved to do another surrogacy.  I am so thrilled to announce that we will be embarking on another surrogacy journey with a couple who live right here in Fresno!  Tune in to the next post to learn more about them and surrogacy #2.  Haha!  Teaser so you have to come back :)
