Avery's Birthmom...

We met with Avery's birthmom this weekend. It was our first time seeing her since the day we brought Avery home. It felt a little shy at first, but we all warmed up quickly. It was so great to see her and to see her with Avery. We got to spend almost 2 hours with her just hanging out and catching up. I've been emailing with her and sending pictures when I have new ones, but it was really great to see her in person and watch her with Avery. I'm looking forward to watching this relationship grow :@)

I had 2 parenting firsts last night...first off I officiated my very first dolphin/whale wedding. Yep, Winter the dolphin and Shamu the whale tied the knot in a quiet ceremony in our living room...complete with stuffed wedding cake and paper sprinkles. I've been told that I performed weddings when I was Mackenzie's age also so it's easy to see where she gets it from :@)

The other first was that I had to google Mackenzie's homework to make sure it was correct...It was a truly humbling experience.

"Mommy, what's a rhombus??"
"Ummm.....a shape?"
"What kind of shape??"
"Ummm....where's my phone???"

Hopefully she got it right....not looking forward to first grade...

Post again soon!
