A Year

One year ago Cam was getting ready to leave for Ethiopia to bring home our sweet baby girl.

One year ago I was just days away from giving birth to Baby George.
One amazing crazy busy unforgettable year.

It's been challenging and tiring and busy and hard work. I worry that everyone isn't getting what they need from me...that I'm stretched too thin. I worry that I won't remember all the special things. I worry.'s been amazing...and exhilarating...and fun...and life altering. It's been a very special year. I take lots of photos...even if I don't have the time to put them all into the albums right now...I will have the memories to look back on.

These sweet babes pucker up and smooch each other...usually this is right after Sis has whacked Baby George or taken his toy;) At least she is learning the art of apology! There are moments of jealousy...usually when I'm holding one and the other baby wants up. That has been the hardest thing for me...well, and when they both cry at the same time...or shall I say scream! My hope and my prayer is that they continue to grow into the best of friends. Sis likes to feed her baby brother. She holds food up to his lips and says, "bite, bite". They are precious.
These two babies came to us the same week from opposite ends of the earth. That is an amazing thing. We are truly blessed by God's love and His plan for our family. I can't imagine my life without them.

Well, now I'm all teared up thinking about my babes and how fast this year has gone.


  1. You are a wonderful mother, Becky. There isn't one of us mothers who wonder if we couldn't have done MORE. They are loved and know it, it's enough...(the music is lovely!)

  2. Made me cry, Becky. God's blessings on each of you!!

  3. You have a big beautiful family and I enjoy reading how each one of you is growing ;)

  4. Becky- you and your superman husband are truly amazing parents. You have such patience and give so much love to all of your babes! After being at your house the other night and watching you laugh at the yelling and scoop them all up and smother them with kisses, you are my heroe!

  5. They are the most adorable sweethearts! What a lucky mommy you are! :)
