5 Years Ago Today.....

Five years ago today, our little family of 3 became a family of 4.
Landis had my heart from the first sight!
(Ok, sorta of added this picture for the background. Yup, those mountains would be our front yard..... why did we move? We are still wondering :)

You can't tell from this picture....but colic IS NOT a myth. Babies can cry for 11 hours straight. Consecutively. Without a break. For 8 weeks.

Had he been a girl, Landis could have sported some major hairbows.

Do we look young? Couldn't even rent a car at this point. Life was good. (And for the record...that is a size 6 month outfit Evangeline is wearing :)

I was..and am...pretty proud of my little fella!

Did Evangeline ever not have her "thing-thing" in her mouth. Nope. We love those plugs.

Happy Birthday to our funny, sweet, kind, loving, courageous Landis. We love you!!
(We have some exciting, wonderful new adoption news to share...but it will have to wait unil tomorrow...because we have a kiddo to celebrate today! But to raise your curosity...the Lord has been working. And there is a bun in the oven...nope, not my oven. And we are still headed to Africa. And I need to get a carseat and diapers pronto. And the diapers...need to be size NB. Curious? Tomorrow :)
