Bookmark for Amazon Link

Hi, guys!

I just want everyone to know how to bookmark our amazon link, so I’m going to do a couple step-by-step instructions for Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer. If you use a different browser, I’m happy to find instructions, so let me know!


  1. Click on this link
    • Depending on your settings, it should open in a new tab.
  2. Click on the star at the far right side of the URL line.
    • Be sure you do this in the tab that amazon is open in! If you click on the star in this tab, you’ll bookmark our blog. As much as we’d love that, it won’t really help 😉
  3. The star will turn blue and a box will show up.
    • In the first box label it whatever you like, we named our, “Amazon for Adoption.”
    • In the dropdown box, select, “Bookmarks Bar.”
  4. Done!


  1. Click on this link
    • Depending on your settings, it should open in a new tab.
  2. In the toolbar at the top of the screen, select Bookmarks > Add Bookmark
    • Select Favorites and name it however you want
  3. Whenever you open a new browser page, it will be there with the rest of your book marks
  4. Done!

Three months of bliss

Our first three months with Kyrie were seriously insane. We were still so shocked we had her. What am I talking about? We still are… But those first three months especially. She had colic, really until like 5 or 6 months, but it honestly didn’t even seem so bad because we were just SO in love with her and all she brought to our lives. We’d moved when she was just over 1 month old and were living with Nate’s parents until he graduated from college. Anyway, I remember that she was also having some stomach and colic issues when she was 2 months old, so we didn’t take any pictures then either.

At three months we finally got some, but most of them she’s only in a diaper cover, and I’m a bit obsessed about our children being fully clothed on the internet… but that’s for another post. In the meant time, I’ll post the few I have of her fully clothed. 🙂 Trust me when I say, they’re adorable!

We bought Joe-Joe (the giraffe) when she was only a few weeks old, and are planning on sending all of our updates to B and N with some pictures of her next to him. We sent them an identical one, so they can always know how big she is with that reference. She’s also always been very animated, and here’s a great progression of her playing with nearly any toy, but especially when playing with Joe-Joe.

Also, notice the drool… this also always happens with things she wants. She can’t even control her salivation apparently.

This included a scream of excitement.

And I forgot to mention, the blanket in the background is the one her birth mom N gave her to us in. It’s still my most prized possession.
