Brady's Referral Day, Emily's Been in our Arms 5 Months and a Major "Breakthrough"!!

April 19th is a busy day here at our house!! Three years ago today we saw Brady's face for the very first time!!! OMG, I remember that day like it was yesterday! Brady has brought so much joy and love to our hearts and house (and a few gray hairs!!). He's such a sweet "big boy" and I can't imagine life without him!!

Today also marks 5 months since we first held Emily in our arms!! I can also remember that day like it was yesterday. She has changed SO much in just 5 months, it's really unbelievable. We get so many laughs, smiles, and giggles out of her now, especially Brady. She LOVES her big brother and wants to do EVERYTHING he does...and most of the time she does!!! LOL. I can only imagine all the good things ahead of us!

As for today's "major breakthrough"......Brady, Emily and I were in the car on the way to the grocery store and Brady and I had the following conversation:

Brady: "Mommy, I love Emily! Can we keep her?"
Me: "Of course we can, she's your baby sister"
Brady: "I'm gonna love her everyday in my heart and kiss her and hug her and kiss her and hug her and kiss her and hug her everyday!!!"

This brings tears to my eyes and is MUCH better than what he said on day 25 of having Emily home, which was: "Mommy, PLEASE take her back to Taiwan". LOL

Brady Says:

Brady and I were just talking about my birthday, which is coming up in a few days. I was trying to get him to get Alan to get me something REALLY good!!! I know, that's wrong on SO many levels, but mostly I was just playing around!! Anyway, here is part of our conversation:

Me: Brady how about getting mommy some diamond earrings?
Me: you don't think mommy would like diamond earrings?
B: no, how bout some crinkly shells?

Yeah, that's JUST what I've been wanting!!!! LOL

Me: How about getting mommy some wine?
B: No
Me: why not?
B: because you like wine in stores and in restaurants, you have enough!!!! LOL

I guess he's looking out for my best interest!!!
