Life Lately

Forgive this discombobulated post of random happenings around here lately.  And by lately I mean over a month and a half.  I know, I know.  It's been awhile since regular posting!

Hayes went to his first friend birthday party.  His older, wiser friend Porter turned two in February.  It was probably the cutest party I've ever seen.  My friend Beth is SUPER creative and with Porter's love of dogs, the doggie theme was quite appropriate.  See more pics of the puppy bash here.  It was appropriate that this was Hayes's first party to attend because I've been BFF with Porter's mommy since first grade!  Hayes enjoyed helping himself to some of Porter's cake.  Can't wait for these two to be big buds!  We love you Port Port!  You're going to be the best big brother very soon!

Our sweet boys with their mommies!

This kid LOVES bath time.  The other night at the dinner table the hubby and I were talking and I said "I'm not going to give him a bath tonight.  He just had one last night."  (you know the conversation: "Does he REALLY need a bath tonight"  Then it's time for the sniff test!)  Hayes said "bath, bath, bath" and proceeded to have a minor tantrum until I decided to let the kid have a bath!  That night was also the first time he said "bath," so we were pretty impressed! We're definitely going to have to start spelling words now!

In addition to bath time, Hayes loves to be outside.  And it being March in Tennessee, the weather around here is quite unpredictable!  So needless to say, we take full advantage of pretty days around here!  We took a blanket and our snack outside and play play played on Friday.

We even love being outside when it's not so warm!  Love this picture of my silly boy!

Saturday was another beautiful day, so we headed to the park.  Hayes enjoyed his second time on the swings!  He cracked us up with how he was leaning forward.  We didn't leave him like that too long because it looked a little painful!

We are enjoying all of the many firsts with our sweet boy.  And I couldn't be more excited to be going to the beach with my two favorite guys for Spring Break in just 3 1/2 days!!!  More on that later.  Happy Wednesday to you all!

Happy 5 Years!

Today the hubby and I are celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary.  I can't even believe it's been that long.  I love reminiscing about our wedding because it was just the perfect day!  Here are a few of my favorite pictures from our special day.  2 years ago I did a longer post so click here for more pics.  I didn't want to put up ALL of the same pics (and bore those of you who have seen them before), but I wanted to share a few for you newer readers.  Thanks for letting me walk down memory lane...

To my hubby: what a journey the last 5 years have been!  And who would have thought we would have been to Africa and back with our precious first son!  I couldn't ask for a more wonderful husband to walk through this journey with.  Thank you for your constant encouragement love, and support (not only for me now, but for Hayes as well).  You are an amazing husband and father!  We are so lucky to have you!  Happy Anniversary!

Court Date Anniversary!

Today marks one year since our case was submitted to court in Ethiopia.  Read all about it here.  (January 27 marked our "referralversary"-the day we saw Hayes's face for the first time.  But being the sporadic blogger that I am these days, I didn't get around to blogging about it!  Read our referral announcement here).  

The nervousness, the constant checking of email, the wondering when your child will be home are definitely NOT things that I miss.  So my heart goes out to you waiting mamas (and dads!) out there.  Praying right along with you!  It's definitely not easy.  

Today I'm thankful for this precious face!  I am so blessed to be able to call him my son!  

So, how ridiculously old does he look in this picture?!  I can't even believe that he's 15 months old!  My baby's getting big!  Happy Wednesday, Wayman Family Nesters!
