Ok, so my "turning over a new leaf" didn't really work out... so, I'm trying again! We have been pretty busy - here is a little catch-up in photos.
Giving the thumbs up at the doctors office... such a trooper!
Looking suave on Easter
Hangin' out with Grandpa
with Daddy at the Tulip Festival
Mommy and Reeves at the Tulip Festival
Trying on some wooden shoes at the Tulip Festival - which is held at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm... hence the wooden shoes :)
A quick family photo from a very special spot on the Oregon Coast...
There are a lot more... but hey I gotta start somewhere! :)
Tomorrow is a big day for us... our first post-placement visit!
