Mike turns 51

Yesterday my sweet Mike turned 51. Wow, it is hard to believe that he is in his 50's.

We had a great evening. I made him a chocolate cake with chocolate and toasted walnut icing. Wendy and I sang to him and gave him our gifts and cards.
Lacy dropped by to wish her dad a happy birthday and Holly called. Our parents sang to him on the phone. Not a bad night.

Saturday we will be celebrating Mike's and my parents birthdays since they are all with in the month of January.

Happy Birthday to all three of you!

19 Month Mark!

Sad but has now been 19 months since we were logged in for Mylie. I should have written this the day before yesterday, since it was the nineteenth and the 19th month of waiting.

We have been keeping ourselves busy, and trying to keep calm still about the long wait.

Over the weekend we moved Lacy into her own place. She is now in an apartment and is making her little nest. I can't wait to see it once it is finished. Lots of things to put in such a small place, but I know she can figure out where everything should go.

Mean while we are enjoying Holly being home for the weekend. She must go home this evening luckily she will be flying so it won't take that long to get back. I will be sad to see her go.

Lacy comes back tomorrow to get a few things that were left behind. It will be good to see her and here how things are coming on the new place.

As for our wait.... Well, it has been a long one and I know that one day we will have our sweet baby Mylie. It is just taking longer than anyone would dream. I guess one way of looking at things is that we are 19 months and one day closer to our little one. I can't wait to see her little face, hold her and to shower her with all of this built up love we have gained for her.

I'm still hoping for a miracle though.
