Sydney's Two Brothers and Two Sisters

The other day Sydney was holding up her fingers and telling me she wanted two brothers and two sisters.  Well, yesterday we took care of the two brothers part of her request.  We adopted two little brothers. Two miniature dachshunds.  We haven't figured out their names yet, maybe I will try to figure out the poll thingy that so many of you are utilizing on your blogs right now.  If you have any suggestions, please post them.  I will try to post some pics of them once we download some from the camera.
And we are working on the two sisters part of her request, as well.  We are jumping through hoop after hoop trying to get to her baby sister in Kyrgyzstan.  And just when we think we have cleared all the hoops, more appear.  But the Lord is in control and He will get us through.  He has already gotten us so far.  This will get us to one of her sisters. The other sister will probably get here first. 
We are pregnant.  We found out the same day we got our letter from Homeland Security; boy was that a pretty exciting day for our family.  We go for a sonogram on July 2nd to find out our due date.  So far everything is going pretty well with the pregnancy aside from A LOT of morning sickness.  I wasn't sick once with Sydney, so this is a big change for me.  We did an early gender detection blood test this week and we found out that we are having a baby girl. Please keep both of our children in your prayers as the days we will meet them draw nearer.

Ok, so I WAS confused as to who Tony was...glad you clarified!

How exciting that you are pregnant and one step closer to your baby girl in Kyrgyzstan!! That is fantastic news.

Alex LOVES to go potty in public, so I feel you about stopping what you are doing (several times) to take Sydney! Hey, progress is progress!
