Watch out Duggars...

HERE COME THE Hurleys!!!  We are super excited to announce that it looks like baby #2 and baby#3 are on their way!  This will be a very different and equally exciting situation.  We are adopting this go round and have been matched with an amazing birth mom.  We know that anything can happen in this situation and are remaining cautious... actually that is a big fat lie.  We are so over the moon and excited that we can barely sit still.  And yes a little terrified, but ultimately we are in LOVE with these babies already.  I will post more later!!!

9 months

I can't believe our little Zozo is NINE months old.  She is absolutely amazing and we just stare and stare at her.  Evey little accomplishment is amazing to watch her figure out.  She has decided that crawling is boring and would prefer to just roll everywhere.  And that kid can roll across the parlor and living room before you finish sneezing.  She has also inherited some of Tony's less endearing qualities.  I am referring to her complete stubborness.  Whether it is changing her diaper, or her clothes, or even feeding her, if she doesn't want to do it she is not going to make it easy.  She also can't seem to get her clothes in the hamper either... JUST like her Papa.  SHE at least has an excuse.  I love them both though and have decided to keep them.

We went to the park to celebrate her 9 month "birthday".  We live in a pretty progressive city and there were plenty of the gays at the park.  Even other gay families.  We DO tend to get the strangest looks from other "bear" types.  It is a phenomenon I have noticed lately.  Probably because I am so butch and they can't figure it all out.

 She is absolutely Papa's girl.
 I LOVE those cheeks!
 She REFUSES to wear shoes or even socks, another thing she gets from her Mississippi roots (cough Tony)

 Celebrating her 9 months!
Not quite sure how she feels about the teeter totter.
In OTHER news we have started talking about child number 2.  We're not quite sure how that is going to work out yet, but we would both LOVE to add another kid to our family.  We live in a state where surrogacy is only okay if there is no money exchanged (stupid) so more will be revealed.  Maybe adoption?  Hey are cabbage patch kids still a thing?
