The rocker is finished!

We got this beautiful chair from Gavin's parents, and we absolutely love it!  Amy just got a little nervous about her decision to get a white chair, so she decided to add a bit of chevron to it.  We love the way it turned out!

Baby clothes

So I'm excited about making baby girl clothes.  I've made two little skirts so far and painted necklaces onto onesies (I love wearing necklaces, so I thought it would be cute for our little girl to wear them too).  The fashion designer in me is going crazy about dressing a little girl in my future!

We have been chosen!

We have been chosen by the most amazing birth mom named Kristen.  She is so cute and so fun and so perfect for us and we love her so much already.  We have really enjoyed getting to know her and her family.  We are so excited that we get to "keep" them.  :)  We were really hoping that she would chose us and that we could have her be the birth mom of our baby.  We couldn't ask for better people to welcome into our family.

She is having a baby girl.  The due date is June 20th.  We are so excited.  We are planning on naming her Piper Joon.  It is hard to believe that this is really going to happen for us.  It is an answer to our prayers (a lot of prayers for a lot of years).  We know that Heavenly Father will send the right baby at the right time.  And this one feels so different than all of the others.  It feels so right.  And all of the waiting was worth it to be able to have Kristen and her family be in our life.  :)

Cute little horsy.

We have been collecting things for our nursery (mostly from wonderful family who don't need baby things anymore).  I absolutely love this little rocking horse.

Biking Family Fun

We had so much fun biking with Gavin's whole family last weekend.  The is an amazing trail not to far from where we live.  We love to go there whenever we can.  There is so much beauty in the world around us!

 Gavin's parents are going on their mission this weekend, so we took family pictures of each family.  So this is ours.

Here is Amy with two of our cute nieces.  They always have so much fun together.  They were skipping rocks (or at least attempting to) just before this picture was taken.  Amy needs to bring her camera more often so that we can have more pictures with Gavin in them!

USA Freedom Run

 Gavin and I had the opportunity to be a part of the USA Freedom Run this weekend.  It is a color run where they throw colored corn starch at you while you run a 5K.  It was so much fun.  Gavin and his co-worker Ryan were hired to film the race, so me and Chantelle (Ryan's wife who is one of my best friends) got to run the race while they filmed it.  It was so much fun!!!  Chantelle and I ran the race with her 5 kids.  We made sure to get everyone as messy as we could, after all, that is half the fun.  My awesome sister-in-law KariLyn also came and ran it with us, I just don't have copies of the pictures yet that she took of all of us.

About Me

This blog is all about our desires to start our family. So far it hasn't worked out for us. We did get pregnant back in 2009. I only carried it for 10 weeks. We have had no luck since then. Gavin and I have always been very pro adoption. So here we are. We were chosen by an amazing, sweet young woman, she chose us right after finding out that she was pregnant. We loved her so much. But sadly she lost the baby when she was 16 weeks along. So we are still waiting for that special baby to come into our home. We wanted to start this blog to help you get to know us a bit better. I just think that it's different seeing a blog rather than just reading a profile. Enjoy! And don't be afraid to leave comments!
