LiFe WiTh EvErEtT

I can't believe our little man is 2 1/2 months old - where does the time go! Everett is such a good baby and we are extremely lucky and blessed. My siblings are jealous. ;) We tell them that we went through heck and back for 3 years to get him to our family. We deserve it, right? ;)

He really is our little miracle and we count everyday with him as a blessing. We continue contact with Kelbi and Dylan - once a month now. We send them e-mails and LOTS of pictures.

Everett had his 2 month check-up on January 7. He had to get 5 shots!
Length: 22.25 inches (the RN didn't stretch him out so he's probably taller)
Head: 16 inches (he kind of has a big head)
Weight: 10 lb 2.3 oz
He is on the smaller side, but perfect in my eyes. He doesn't go back into the doctor until March at his 4 month check-up (where more shots will come).

The Department of Human Services has already approved our adoption (yay!) in record time. It got approved near the beginning of January. We were really shocked at how fast it went. LDSFS has to have 2 post-placement visits and our second one was this past week. Our case manager comes and checks to see how everything is going. She asked about Everett's general health (eating, sleeping, health, etc). It's also to see where he sleeps and how we're adjusting. We do love our case manager and have loved working with her. Now that the final visit is done, LDSFS has to write up a report. Something else happens and...voila! It's done. I'm really not sure exactly what else needs to happen, but there are a few things that still need to be done (not on our part though). We are hoping everything will be done by the beginning of March so we can be sealed at the end of March. Cross your fingers and toes!

And that's life.

We just couldn't be happier to count Rev amongst our family. Sometimes I forget who's adopted and who's not!
