Christ the Savior is Born

Merry Christmas everyone! We are about to pull out of the house to drive to Birmingham and then catch a plane to ice-and-snow-covered Chicago. We always enjoy seeing our family up there, and it should be an exciting trek with a 2 year old and a 3 month old on the plane. Anyway, that's it. Just wanted to say we love you all and hope that the reality of our Savior's birth fills your thoughts, hearts and minds today and all year.

Fall Update

Many of you will see this post and say to yourself, "wow, it's been a long time since the Adams posted a blog's about time". Or maybe, "Man, the Adams must have been busy lately". The truth is, we just haven't cared enough about it lately to give you an update. The good news is, we do now! So without further adieu (sp?), our Fall, with brief explanation for each.

Mo Klein

Klein's home, things are great. Especially when all of our caring family members drop what they're doing to come spend time with us, help around the house, and love on Bethany. We (Steve and Bridget) so far agree that while having 2 kids at home will definitely bring future challenges, the absence of uncertainty and anxiety the 2nd time around is refreshing. It's nice to know that eventually he WILL eat, he WILL stop crying, he WILL develop a routine, and we WILL sleep. It's sort of like that phenomenon that happens when you're trying to follow directions to some new place: for some reason, the return trip home (once you know your way) always feels much, much shorter. Doesn't it?

The most beautiful mommy I have ever seen.

He's Here!

All 8 Pounds, 11 ounces and 21.5 inches of Stephen "Klein" Adams, Jr. arrived on Monday, September 8th at 5:19pm. I'm sure we'll provide more insight later. But for now, pictures, and then a nap. Bridget and Klein are both doing very, very well.

Awaiting Baby Klein's Arrival

Well, we are now about 10 days from the big due date!!...Bethany can't wait for her little brother to come and Steve and I can't wait to experience raising a SON!!...
Pregnancy is such a wierd thing; i am surprised to be so close to having Klein here but at the same time it feels like i've been pregnant forever!!...I'm having a lot of pain that i didn't have with bethany but i'm also not having the symptoms of labor being close that i had with bethany, which is a little scary; am i going to go beyond my due date while being in such pain??????????? Oh well, he'll come when he's supposed to :)
This will probably be our last post until Klein gets here, and even then, you might see birth announcements before you see blog updates!...Until then....

fun recent pictures

who says i can't use my hand as a palette? might want to turn around now Steve!

I told Bethany to go get clothes and shoes on so we could walk Oscar; this is how she returned :)

Bethany's 2nd Birthday Weekend

Bethany turned two July 11th!! It's just too hard to believe! We started her birthday with a trip to Pine Mountain Wild Animal Safari with Nah Nah. It was too much fun! You drive through the park, feeding animals that would get in the car with you if you let them! It actually got a little scary at times. We didn't even roll down the windows for the "Guar", the huge animal in the 2nd pic. That night we celebrated with Bethany's closest buds at Burger King. It was a Nemo theme of course! Bethany wouldn't blow out her own candles but she had a great time on the playground, her favorite one to play on here in Columbus. The next day we headed down to Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra Beach, because Steve had a band gig there, so we had a little mini family vacation. It is definately all the traveling I want to do though!! I'm getting very big these days and I pretty much just want to be in a pool or on the couch with my heating pad!!! We all can't wait for baby Klein to be here!
Thank you to all our friends and family for making Bethany's birthday so special this year. We love you!!
