Where has the time gone????

To all who continue to follow my blog (which is probably no one anymore since I am absolutely
horrible at updating it!), I will try and do better, but you see, I have this really amazing daughter who I am totally addicted to and could spend every waking moment with:)

My little girl is turning 5 MONTHS OLD on Monday:( I can't believe how fast she is growing up. I fall more in love with her (if that is even possible???) She has such a personality and a bit of a temper (she obviously must get that from her daddy...hehe)! And, she has this smile that melts mommy and daddy's heart. She loves to play, play, play with all of her toys. Her grammas and papas are spoiling her rotten, as well as her aunties and uncle Chris!

For the past month, we have been eating baby food (greener beaners and cereal). She loves them, not sure why. I tasted both and gag!!! She will be on the move soon....

Today, we looked at a few houses, we are busting at the seams in our current home, and I am sure by the end of this year I will have the itch to try for another baby Romine. And, that lil babe of ours in Africa will need a room (one day, one day, I promise!). I know that God would never put adoption in our hearts and then not have us follow through.

We also took Maryn on a long walk, because this weather is GORGEOUS!!!! Life is so good! I love my little family so SOOOO much! I started back to work about 4 weeks ago. I am working as a recovery room nurse at Ear, Nose and Throat's Surgery Center. I work with a great group of nurses and am loving it:) I get to be home with Maryn in the mornings and she only has to be in daycare from 12-5p on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Gramma B watches her on Fridays:)

Praising God today and always for the life he has given me!

"Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it" Mark 10: 14

Sorry for the lapse....I'm busy making memories:)

Wow, I am blessed and amazed by our Lord!!! Maryn Rae Romine entered the world on November 11, 2010...almost 7 weeks ago! I cannot get enough of her...I can gaze at her ALL.DAY.LONG! She is soooo beautiful and PERFECT! She is such a little angel and we are having so much fun with her. Over the past week she has started to "talk" to us...lots of smiles and coos and goos. I LOVE IT! She is growing like a little weed.....

I am reminiscing today....a year ago, Tyler and I had decided to shut the door on conceiving a biological child...and had decided to adopt from Africa. In our minds, we thought we would have our adopted child home by the end of right we were! God sure does answer prayers...HE is SOOO amazing. God has been so good to me!!!!

3D Ultrasound

We went for a 3D ultrasound this past Wednesday, but Maryn didn't want to cooperate...haha!! She hid her face with her little arms. We got tons of pictures of little arms, legs, feet, and hands though. Her heart rate was 145, plenty of amniotic fluid, and her umbilical cord looks great! Oh, she is also in breech presentation...little stinker!! We are going back on September 9th and having another 3D and hoping that she cooperates a little more:)

She is moving, moving, moving! I just love truly is the best feeling in the world! Dr. Davis says she's on the moderate to large size. I also had my glucose test that day, which may have contributed to her bouncing around so much for the ultrasound. I'm guessing everything was good with my glucose, cause I never heard anything....

I can definately tell that I am slowing down now...can't believe how fast the time is going though!

Working Vacation

I had the past week off work to get things done around the house in preparation for Maryn. I also went shopping in Columbus with my mother-in-la w and sister-in-law, Sara. We went to Lottie Da baby boutique, where I picked out fabric for Maryn's custom crib bedding...thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Romine. It is SOOOOO cool! I can't wait for it to be finished:) Think vintage, shabby chic. We had such a great time together shopping, talking, and doing fun girl stuff:) I love, love, love my in-laws:)

On Tuesday, my crib arrived....also in love. It is light gray. My mom and I went and registered at Babies R Us. Wow, it took us 4 hours....and I had even done my research prior..haha! It was so cool to be able to do this with my mama:) Her and I also picked out the nursery paint...its a very light pink and its called "Baby's Bottom" fitting?

On Wednesday, I had a doctor's appt....everything checking out great:) My next visit is the big glucose test and 3D Ultrasound...yay!!! I will post pics.

On Thursday, Tyler and I went shopping for life insurance, then I spent the rest of the weekend at the lake.

I can't believe how the time is flying! I'm enjoying every minute of it:)

Baby Maryn, you are loved beyond belief:) Stay comfy my love:)

Miss Maryn,

My heart overflows with love for you! I love feeling your every kick, poke, and move. You've even allowed daddy to feel you now. Four months from today I will be able to touch, hold, and snuggle with you....stay comfy until then. I purchased your baby book and cannot wait to start filling it in. I'm heading to Columbus with your Grandma and Aunt Sara tomorrow to go shopping for YOU!

Its a.......

GIRL!!!! We had our big ultrasound/doctor appt. today. We had no clue/intuition of either boy nor girl going into the appt...we just wanted a healthy baby. The ultrasound was very thorough...looking at the brain, heart, lips, etc.... and SHE looks perfect:) She has my nose. She already is very dramatic and likes to pose. We can't wait until November when we can get our hands on her!! She has already stolen mommy and daddy's hearts!! I can officially start shopping....yay!!! Oh, almost forgot to share her name: Maryn Rae Romine.

I will post the U/S pics, but they are definately not as clear as last time.

Thanks for sharing in our joy!

Sweet Baby Romine

We had another visit to the doctor today, pretty uneventful though. I cannot believe how fast these weeks are flying by....but I CANNOT wait until the day we get to meet our sweet lil babe (but hopefully not before November). Its amazing how much I already love him or her. I pray multiples times a day and thank God for blessing us with this amazing gift!

Doctor Davis listened to the heartbeat (140s) and now he's predicting a boy. But, just 4 weeks ago, he predicted girl. SOOOO, June 30th will be the big day, and I will share with all (and even the name)! All I know is I have this unsatiable sweet tooth that has to stop! Oh, and Mexican food (I will be very suprised if this babe doesn't come out with a burrito in hand):)

So, off for my nightly walk....

I wouldn't trade this experience for anything in the world! We're loving life and praising God!!!
