How to Come With Us and Meet #BabyTex

November 6, 2014


We are so excited about the upcoming adoption!!! 🙂

Both of us express this enthusiasm in different ways though….

Have you seen Home Alone? Remember when the mom calls 911 about leaving her son at home? They keep passing her back and forth, describing her as “hyper on (line) two?” 

That’s me.

I’ve washed, dried, folded, and organized all my cloth diapers by color. I’ve dusted every visible and non-visible surface of the house. I ironed a curtain with one wrinkle. I vacuum constantly and wipe down the kitchen counters at least three dozen times a day. Then when I have nothing left to clean, I pick a fight with Jonathan just to stay mentally preoccupied.

Jonathan has burst out in laughter and screamed with excitement. Or jumped up and down.

His version of handling excitement mixed with nervous energy seems much more fun and lovable…

But before I start over-analyzing about how I’m not as holy or fun as Jonathan is, let’s turn back to the adoption! We leave for California THIS FRIDAY!!!

Many of you don’t have too much experience with adoption, or perhaps you even donated via our Adoption Puzzle.…so we want to bring you all along with us on this cool adventure!

How do we plan to do that? Well, we will be updating our trip here on the blog as wi-fi and time permits. More often, we will share photos via Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Below is the information on how to follow us via social media for the play-by-play updates while we are on the road::




#BabyTex is what we’ll be using as we document our adventures 🙂 Feel free to join in the fun or just tag along for the ride.

We will also be including our Adoption Puzzle progress (79% done) while we’re away for those who want to jump on the bandwagon in the eleventh hour. Stay tuned!

      Apparently I am 🙂 I wasn’t sure if that instinct would kick in since I am not pregnant but it came like a fury! Haha.
