6 months ago....

Rafael now (well a few weeks ago)

Rafael on Feb. 19, 2011. What a sweetie!


Meeting Rafael for the first time!! He initi.ally came towards me, but then ran away



It was six months ago on Friday that we first met out son. It is still hard to believe he has only been in our lives for six months. It seems like he has been with us forever! It seems to us that he is doing wonderfully. He seems to be well attached to us, he is saying more and more words everyday, he seems to be understanding more and more of what we say, and he is just the cutest and happiest little boy ever! We have been so blessed that Rafael was chosen to be our son. He is just perfect for our family. Yes, there are days when he drives me a little crazy. Like Friday afternoon when he poured the dog's water bowl on top of his head, then he marked on the walls in pen, and then he threw his supper on the floor, but I guess that's just part of having an almost two year old in your house! I'm sure there lots more of that to come so we'd better get used to it. The terrible twos are just around the corner!

Renee! He's adorable and really is the perfect boy for you! I especially love the stories of Rafael when he's being a silly boy...like the water bowl on his head! Those stories make me laugh out loud!!

Six months already? It's just amazing to see how much he's growing and keeping you on your toes. He was definitely the perfect match for you!

Congrats, you guys! Six months together is a big deal. And yes, I can so relate to feeling like it's been way longer. Rafael is clearly thriving in your family. :-)

Reading this makes me smile...yes, the terrible 2s, but each stage has its ups and downs. I can't believe how fast the time has flown. He is so cute, and yes, he looks so happy and adjusted. What a blessing!!!
