When Expectations are Low, it makes SURPRISES that much Sweeter!

I've been super busy trying to get orders out from my last sale, and trying to get started on the big order for my new account. So while I'm spending every waking minute watching the clock, and surveying how much I've gotten done, I've discovered that it's also a blessing as I don't have time to obsess over where we're 'at' with our adoption process. My care package for Charlie should be arriving (via a super cool friend) in Korea in the next week or so. So I figured that my next chance of getting updated photos of Charlie will be when he in goes for his August WBC. Which puts it at maybe the end of August as the soonest for getting photos. Also, I've heard that some 'key people' on the Holt Staff in Korea are actually visiting Holt in Oregon... which again, would slow things down. 

So image my surprise when I got home from running some errands
and found an email titled: 


sitting in my inbox. 

awesomeness beyond awesome.

So without further adieu, 
here is my Charlie!

I'm thrilled to see that he's learning how to 'sit' as we know he's a couple of months behind developmentally. My sweet, sweetie baby is getting so big! (okay, so he's still only 15.5lbs, but I think that's technically bigger than Claire was at this age) Anyway, it's so nice to have a glimpse of what Charlie's like 'now', instead of just wondering, you know? 

Okay, so that's all the 'break time' I've allowed myself
for the moment, so it's back to work!
