We are so in love!

Jax is doing so well. I know we are still in the "honeymoon" phase but we are enjoying every second! It breaks our heart because he seems so hungry. He can not get full and has been eating non-stop. He is so smart he has been learning to say thank-you after we give him something. He is also learning that just because he whines we won't give him his way. He pouts, we ignore him, he gets over it. I do have to say he loves Mama! hee hee. He keeps bringing me snacks and makes sure I am in the room...of course I love that. We took him to Mcdonalds this afternoon and he was so excited! Bert carried him when we crossed the street and Jax looked so happy and proud that his Baba was holding him. When it was time to leave McDonalds he started shoving food in his mouth like crazy....uhh even off the floor. I tried to show him that we were bringing his leftovers with us to the hotel. He has been eating his leftover fries all afternoon they are finally gone! I know we will have him filled out in no time. He weighs about the same as Sophie and is about 2 inches taller. The 5t shirt fits him perfect and thankfully the 5t shorts are adjustable waist or they would be too big. He wears a size 10 shoe. He is just a peanut! Oh we are so in love. Thank you Lord for answering all our prayers!!

God really knows how to put everthing right into place...Ok I will admit I am balling trying to even read the post....When I am all finished with school and we get into our own house I really really want to adopt like Laura did one day! I feel a calling but it doesnt help that Riley prays EVERY night for a baby sister! lol

He already looks like a Pierce! Love you all and praying for all of you. Enjoy your time together. Can't wait to see you. He looks so happy. He is so blessed to have a Christian Home. God is good. Look at the hope in those eyes, that is hope in Jesus. To know he was wonderfully made for " The Pierce Family ". Love, Amy
