Our baby is 2-years-old today!

It has been almost 11 months since we first saw Seth's beautiful face. We were certain that we would be celebrating his second birthday with him at home. We have watched him grow from a baby to a boy through pictures... And on this special day, instead of giving him birthday cuddles, we are blowing kisses to him from across the ocean.

We may not be with him today, but that is not going to stop us from celebrating his birthday! Sara and I are about to make very special birthday cupcakes, and Sara's instructions are very clear for the decorating - "The cupcakes will have LOTS of candy hearts on them so Seth knows how much we love him. And I'll eat two cupcakes, one for me and one for Seth - I think he would want me to do that for him, right?"

Oh Laura, he's so beautiful! (as I've said already, ha ha). This update must have been full of joy as you that he will be in your arms soon!
I asked Sid if he saw any of the kids in the transition home (Sophie was moved on Thursday) but he said he hadn't. I was hoping he had seen Seth. :( Boo.
