Round Here....

We have had a computer virus, (I never will understand what that means!) I have been MIA around here. I'll try to cover the past few weeks in pictures:)

The peanuts are 6 months old!

I cannot believe how quickly they are growing and how quickly time is passing by!
We could just eat them up! Eliana is quite the little chatter box, and "talks" constantly. We switched Jordan to soy formula....and he has been a happy boy ever since! That little butterball is a busy baby, and is happy when there is a lot of action. (He's come to the right place for that:)

We are still in awe of the Lord's placing them in our lives.

Eliana's smile just melts me:)

The first thing people say when they see Jordan (after they have asked if they are identical...he-he), "Look at all that hair!" then a gasp and, "Does he have a blue eye?!?!"
Yes, Jordan's right eye is crystal blue, and his left eye is part brown, part blue. Eliana's eyes are both blue on the top half, and the bottom half of each eye is brown. I've never seen anything like it! They are sooo beautiful!

Easter was especially special this year. Celebrating our new life in Christ and His rising from the grave while holding these precious babies who were given life by their birthmom, and then a new life through adoption was amazing.

We spent the afternoon at my parents with my family. I am one of 5 kids, and my older brother and his wife have a 20 month old son and 7 week old baby girl. I loved watching these sweet cousins take an afternoon nap together:) My younger sister and her husband are expecting their first baby in December....which means my parents will have gone from 4 to 8 grandkids in just 11 months! (And they still have 2 kids at home!)

I am so thankful for my wonderful husband and 5 precious blessing!

....sleepy headed kiddos on Easter morning. Evangeline wanted to know why the peanuts got chocolate in their baskets.......that would be for me:)

My favorite.......It's strawberry season on Georgia! We have planted a large garden with: blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, tomatoes, okra, peppers, green beans, cantaloupe, watermelon, squash, onions, lettuce, cucumbers and muskadines....but did not do strawberries this year. Ours just don't compare to the u-pick farm down the road! We have been busy picking and canning jam.....yum!

Ha-ha! If you know me....I'm all about convenient and cheap:) Making an appointment, taking 5 kiddos with me and bouncing 2 babies on my lab while getting a haircut....and then paying for, not too interested! The hubs cut my hair for me last night! I keep telling him if cabinetry and ministry don't work school could be in his future:)

We cracked up the whole time! I think he may be the new barber for the family:)


That's a quick recap of the past few weeks. Yesterday marked the 4th month since the babies came home! We watched their video again, and cannot believe how much they have grown.
On a sewing note....I have been posting sale dresses over on the Flitterbugs facebook page. There are a few left, ready to ship!

A few new fabrics are set to arrive today, and I will post them soon. You can choose your fabric and place a custom order anytime. This past week we finished up the paper work to finalize the adoption, and hope to get a court date in the next week or so! Whoo-hoo!


  1. Yay! I have been anticipating a post for awhile - I love to follow your blog and watch these little ones grow!
    It's funny, but I thought that both of Jordan's eyes were blue from some of the earlier photos...
    They are both very beautiful! Have a great Mother's Day!

  2. I could just eat your babies up - they are so precious! Makes me eager to get the call for the baby God has for us. (We're pursuing domestic AA adoption.) I thought your family Easter photo turned out quite well!

  3. I know I sound like a broken record but your posts and photos of the twins give me flashbacks. They are 'eat em up' cute!
    Happy Mothers Day Wishes from Hong Kong,

  4. Oh my word. Talk about two beautiful blessings!
    All of your children are cute as can be. I just want to kiss the twins' cheeks! I had to go get my hubby and was like, "Honey, look at the babies!" LOL
    Thank you for such a beautiful blog post, can't wait to read more!

  5. You have a beautiful family, Julie!!
