If you told me 6 months ago that we would be living in a one bedroom apartment for 6 months... I would have told you, "you're stupid".

If you told me a year ago that we would have to wait 6 months to go get our son instead of six weeks... I would have said, "not possible".

If you told me 18 months ago, that Arthur would only spend 2 weeks in the nursery I was creating for him... I probably would have saved a lot of money.

Needless to say, things have not unfolded quite the way we thought they would this past year. It has been HARD, scary, weird, confusing, but it has probably been one of the most important years for us. We have grown as a family and I know I will look back on this time and understand why it all happened this way.

I feel like we are almost out of the woods. We finally moved into a sweet little 3 bedroom house in Houston and I'm finally starting to feel like myself again.

Arthur is growing and talking and running and we absolutely adore him. In the last few weeks, he has really grown up! He started school, had his first visit to the barber shop and has transitioned into a big boy bed!

I hope to get back to blogging regularly, but we all know how that goes. No promises :)
