Ashton's Birth Sisters

I decided I need to journal a little bit about whats going on in our world as of late. Its been a crazy couple weeks and we still don't know for sure whats happening... but let me back up and explain a little bit.

When I was about 6 months prego with Boston, Mark and Les were over to visit and as usual I asked them how the birth mom was. Thats when I found out she was expecting a little girl a month before I was due. Mark and Les asked if it came down to it, would we adopt her? We said absolutely. Fast forward to the day she is born. She has the baby and its a little girl. Birth mom is planning on keeping her. But we didn't know what was going to happen since she is a drug addict and who knows. She gets out of jail and her and that baby are staying at a rehad/home for addicted moms and babies. She stayed there for four or so months.

She gets released from the home and moves in with the Birth dad and they decide that they can do this and they want to be a family and raise this baby. In the mean time, I have had Boston and just getting updates on her life from Mark and Les. We even meet her three or four times.

Around October or sometime like that we find out that Birth Mom is prego...again. This makes baby number 3. Amaya and this babe will be exactly one year apart. Once again, we say we will adopt this baby if it comes down to it. Fast forward to February of this year (2016) I am wanting answers as to what the Birth Parents plan is. Do they want to keep this baby? Do they want her to be adopted? If they want her adopted is it us they want? I don't have any clear cut answers at this point. But what I did know is Birth mom wants "Ashton's Family" to adopt the baby who also happens to be a girl. But Birth Dad doesn't so we really have to play it by ear until she is born. 

Easter Sunday we go and visit Mark and Les. She is kinda giving me an update and tells me BM (birth mom) is dialated to a 3 already and her due date isn't for another three weeks. Well I knew she was going to have that baby any day now cause Ashton was three weeks early and Amaya was two weeks. 

Wednesday, March 30, 2016 at 8 PM I get a call from Les. Baby girl has been born, but she was born addicted to drugs. ;( BM had been using the last two months of her pregnancy and only 12 hours before she delivered. We all up to this point had thought BM was clean and doing good. So we start thinking about making plans for this baby to come into our lives but we really have no idea whats going on. In the mean time, I am watching Amaya while Mark and Les deal with all thats going on at the hospital.

The next couple of days were a whirlwind. Emotional, a lot of breakdowns on my part. Scared for these little girls. Not knowing whats going to happen. DCFS gets involved this time around and decides that the girls should go in there custody. But luckily they awarded that the girls stay in Mark and Les' home. So for now we wait... wait until something happens. We would happily adopt both girls in a second. They are both just little angels and Ashton adores them. I don't know what gods plan is but we have to put all our faith that he knows what he is doing and that some way we can put those girls in our family. Yes I would be the crazy lady with four little kids under four. But you do what you gotta do.
Please keep our family especially Amaya and Brooklyn in your prayers.

Jakes 32nd

That cute hubbie of mine had his 32nd birthday on April 6th. I always like to make a big deal about birthdays cause to me they ARE a BIG deal.

I woke up that morning to make him breakfast and surprise him. He always begs me to wake up and make him breakfast, and I'm a mean wife and NEVER do it. So I get up and he says "I would rather you got back in bed and just cuddle." (In my head 'm thinking who is this guy? so naturally I think the next thing he wants is a little hanky panky, rightfully so on his birthday) but really all he wanted to do was cuddle and stay in bed together and asked me to make his big birthday breakfast on Saturday. Isn't he the best?

But I waas still sneaky and decorated the bathroom with reasons whIyy I love him, and filled his carr to the brim in balloons. And a cute little birthday "work outfit" complete with shirt and tie.

His request for his birthday was that I come bring cupcakes to his work and we take the boys out to lunch. Easy. Done.

That night we met up with my parents, Mark and Les, and our boys for dinner at Red Robin. It was a party

PS I have seen this Kimono on all those little boutiques Websites and they are always $25+ went on Amazon and scored it for $7!!!!!

Our little family did presents and cupcakes together and we spoiled our dad! 

The following Saturday we celebrated with Jake's family. Doing everything he wanted to do. Starting off with the park and eating lunch there. Basically Jake would have lived at the Park if he could, followed by Mexican takeout and presents at his parents.

Happy Birthday babe! I love your more then I love Diet Pepsi or Rockstar. You are my lobster and my person. But seriously you are one of the most selfless people I know. You would do literally ANYTHING to make me and the boys happy. You are my everything and I am glad to get to celebrate you for many more years. Muah!

Easter Easter

The holidays are getting more and more fun the older Ashton gets. He is starting to understand things so much more and enjoy things.

Starting with coloring eggs. EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. Jake and I get in a "tiff" cause Jake hates pretty much anything creative. This includes Egg Coloring, Pumpkin Carving, and gingerbread house making. So basically Jake is scrooge. ;) So it was another "please just have a good attitude about coloring eggs" moment. That turned into a little tiff. But once we got started Ashton was SO into it and SO excited and so happy with every egg, it instantly turned both of our sour moods around. As for Boston he pretty much only wanted to eat the outside part of the egg, and then got too tired so he went to bed haha.

The next morning we woke up to our baskets from the good ol Easter Bunny. 

Then we had a little mishap between brothers. Ashton came in and said "Boston put gum in his hair..." Uhm more like ASHTON put gum in his hair. We ended up just cutting it but luckily you couldn't even tell.
We went to church and it made for a perfect Easter Sunday. We all looked very springy in our Easter Sunday attire.

We finished our day at my sisters house for an Easter Egg Hunt and dinner. It was a perfect day!

Happy Easter from the Frahms
