Today Micah's TWO!

I can't believe it! In the past 6 months he's doubled his weight, learned to hold his head up, roll, sit, and stand, he's walking with support from fingers and beginning to cruise. He's gone from 3 months to 24 months clothes, has gone from 4 oz of formula every 3 hours to 16 oz every 4 hours. He's learned to spash and play in the tub and to follow Brianna everywhere and try to do what she's doing. He's started accepting a LITTLE food in his mouth and is moving his tongue all over appropriately. He's smiling all the time, loves to be tickled, gives great kisses (though he likes to BITE after them), and he has even laughed a time or two when playing by himself. He seeks out his siblings to spend time with and loves to explore the house. He follows the dog around attempting to get her tail and occasionally bumps her with his head-- not so good! ew! LOL He likes to slam the babygates that don't automatically latch and he likes to go into the hallway and close the gate behind himself then cry. He's my "easy to bed, early to rise" kiddo but is beginning to learn to play for a few minutes instead of waking up crying. His sweet personality, chubby little cheeks, and his great big smile are showing more now than ever before.

Today is the first time that his birth will be CELEBRATED and we are so glad that his birthparents chose to have this little guy and to have him made available for us to adopt him. He has blessed us so much and we look forward to all the future years of fun and excitement we know are in store for us with our sweet baby boy.



  1. Happy birthday, Micah! What a wonderful journey you are on, with all kinds of things to see and do and learn, and so many achievements.

    Keep on growing and learning and loving, with your wonderful family there to love you and cheer you on.

    Today is truly a day to celebrate!
