Exciting times!!!!!

Well, it is official!  We have locked in a file for a little girl (2 years old) with a repaired cleft lip/palate!!  We are so excited, but it is still early times yet.

We hope to be able to post her precious little face sooner rather than later.  Stay tuned!

Welcome to first grade!

The first few days have already come and gone.  New school.  New friends.  New babysitter.  LOTS of changes in one little person's life.  Not gonna lie--it hasn't been all roses...but hopefully the nerves (from both parents and child) are subsiding!
Oh yeah, that is another cast that you see.  I'll save that for another day.  Suffice it to say that this one won't be coming off nearly as quickly as the last one.  And yes--same wrist....and she's right handed.

Just checking in..........

 We've been pretty MIA around the virtual world lately, which is o.k.  I've been making a conscious effort to really be present and in the moment.  Especially since summer is quickly slipping through my fingers.
Taking time to just sit and enjoy the breeze.  Or listen to the Noodle chatter on.  Or linger after lunch down at the park and watch the water.  Or catch up on some good books (both with the Noodle and just for myself).
This past weekend, while J was ripping down wallpaper, the Noodle and I headed down into the Valley for a fundraiser for their therapeutic riding program.  Gorgeous weather and lots of smiles.  It does this mama's heart good!
***Update on the wrist--it wasn't broken and after 2 weeks the cast came off :)  Better safe than sorry, especially when dealing with growth plates!
