The Wonderful Years!

I woke up this morning. Watched the sunrise. The same activity as I do everyday.
Today was different, though. I walked into Tanner's bedroom, sat down next to him as he slept and whispered, "It's time to get up, Angel..."
That's when I realized it. 3 years ago today, I landed in his birth country, excited and nervous. The past three years have been definitely a learning experience! Wonderful. Exciting! I wouldn't change one second of it!
Tanner is certainly growing up. He's such the little man. Such a comedian! Ya just never know what's going to come out of his little mouth!

Updated Photo's!

Out of the Mouth of Babes...

Last night, while driving home, I was telling Tanner of all the things I had to accomplish for that night. This was our conversation:

Me: I have so many things to do tonite, Tanner. Cook supper, get your clothes ready for your Christmas program tomorrow night, give you a bath and pick up the kitchen and living room....

Tanner: Momma? Where's my phone?

Me: hmmm, I don't know, Tanner...

Tanner: Where's your phone Momma?

Me: It's right here...why, son?

Tanner: I need to call Jesus to help you...

---My heart melted...---

That absolutely made my whole night...Goodness, I don't think I could love that little boy more!

Happy Birthday, My Little Man!

I had all these plans of waking up before him, this morning, taking his picture at the exact time he was born, singing Happy Birthday as he woke up. Man, was I fooled. Instead, I woke up to his sweet little voice saying, "I just come to check on you, Mom. It's my Birthday!" So, at 4:45, I sang Happy Birthday to him over and over again before talking him into going back to 'rest'.

I can't believe how time has flown by. 3 years ago today...6:10am My precious little baby was born into the world. He's not a baby anymore--if you ask him, Momma is the ONLY one allowed to call him a 'baby'...otherwise he demands that he's a BIG BOY! The only remnants of him being a baby is when he sleeps, he still balls his little hands up in fists...i love that....

At the moment, I don't have any 3rd Birthday pics, but I was looking through all my pictures of him this morning. I found this picture--it's his 1st birthday! He came to see Momma at work! He had only been home for almost 2 months...Gosh, He's growing up! But grows more precious with each day...

So, today, My baby boy, it's your 3rd Birthday! You're growing up to be such a smart, sweet, loving BIG BOY...Momma loves you with all her heart!

I looked at the calendar, then quickly at my watch this morning. It's been 2 years...TWO YEARS since i arrived in Vietnam...
Where has the time gone?
Then, I signed in this morning ( it took me awhile, i had forgotten my email address!) and saw I hadn't posted since April! Sorry....
But, I have some pictures since then...

Happy Easter!

I've been thinking alot about Easter, lately, and the meaning of it. It always leads me back to the night I was matched to Tanner:

God sent his ONLY son, to die on the cross for us...
Could I do the same, if I was in that position?
Could I send Tanner, for you?
The answer, at least for me, is a solid N-O!!!

We have a most selfless God, a loving God!

God Bless and I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!
