Someday we'll find it

I’ve been a bad blogger. Work has been crazy with training and projects and home has been busy with family visiting and then getting ready for E’s parties this weekend.

He’s turning 2! Tomorrow! How crazy and amazing is that?

The Rainbow Families Conference went well. We were getting some pressure from folks about adopting again. It’s interesting that doctors, social workers and such are pushing us. This is a good thing, I think. I had to warn my friend at the agency not to send any pictures of waiting kids. I know I’d crumble.

Guatemala is a question mark still. I sense they are trying to comply with the Hague Convention but the deadline is looming. In 2006 there were 5,024 adoption cases in Guatemala and of that number 4,757 went to the US. That’s a staggering number. I hope they get their procedures worked out and that placements can continue.

E is incredible. He’s becoming this person with wants and needs and a sense of humor. He makes jokes now, trying to get us to laugh at silly things or laughing along. At the conference I tried to explain to a parent-to-be how becoming a Dad is like watching your life explode and then the pieces come back together in this wonderful new way and the puzzle is even bigger than you imagined.

Wrapping presents tonight, getting ready for the big day!

Aww... Happy 2nd birthday to E!!

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday Little Guy!

I love your description of how it changes. That is so much more accurate it is. I was prepared for "change" I wasn't prepared for the explosion. It is nice how the pieces go together.

Do we get pictures of E's birthday party? He was so adorable on halloween.

Actually, it'd be nice to know what L looks like, after all this time.

I'm not sure if I'll be posting too many personal pics. I've read about some scary incidents from other bloggers. E's safety is my first concern.

I've thought about letting some regulars see some pics offline if there was interest.

I'm still amazed by how much you resemble Hugh Laurie.
