We’re not outnumbered … yet

Well, I suppose it’s about time we proclaimed the big news: Yoli is several months pregnant! The baby is due around my dad’s birthday in August, though Yoli is hoping he/she will be born in late July (so we won’t add yet another birthday to that crammed month).

Jadzia has certainly kept us on our toes, and kept our house a constant mess. I’m not sure what we’ll do when there’s the same number of children as there are adults. I’m also not looking forward to dealing with two car seats. Somehow we will survive, though. It will be awesome for Jadzia to have a sibling to play with (though we’ll probably have to deal with the inevitable jealousy issues when the baby arrives).

Also, a little tidbit: Jadzia just got some shoes this week (she’s gone around barefoot or socked only all this time). But she doesn’t walk or stand very well in them. It’s going to take some time for her to get used to them. Another thing she’s learning to do is eat with a spoon. She’s getting better each day.

    I was just searching for blogs about Bolivia because I will be going to Cochabamba, Bolivia on Monday. I wanted to say thank you for sharing your family’s inspiring story. My boyfriend is Bolivian and I am from the U.S., so I can relate to a lot of the difficulties you’ve experienced with visa issues! But like they say, love conquers all, and the governmental instutions and their changing laws cannot keep us apart.
    Keep up the good work,
    Alia
