A New Addition to our Family

We are celebrating Molly’s 8th birthday today by taking a trip to Cleveland, Ga to adopt a baby from Babyland General Hospital.
Molly wanted to get up while it was still dark, so we did! And we were eating breakfast by 7:15 am, a good 40 minutes from home.

This nap happened after filling bellies with pancakes and eggs. But we finally arrived.

Boys pretended to be asleep while we waited for the hospital to open.

Mack played around the entire time.

He stared this cow down and then punched it in the nose. ?! Boys!

This is the doll I would have chosen, but Molly had her mind set on a newborn baby boy.

She carried this baby around most of the time until she found one with a cuter outfit. She quickly decided to exchange baby boy #1 with baby boy #2. As we walked away from baby boy #1, Josh said to me, “You’re having a hard time with that, aren’t you? You feel bad for him.” And I said, “Strangely, I do. ”
But Molly was happy with her second choice.

Molly and Josh talked through names for the baby…Bartholamew was all Josh offered. Molly decided upon “Drew Lee Dorminy.”

Taking an oath to care for Drew and love him forever

Welcome to the family, Drew!

We went to Anna Ruby Falls, and despite typical newborn rules, we let Drew come out and explore with us!

He is eating well.

And this was a cute pic of Ruby from the day.

Bear with us as we adjust to a newborn baby in the house again….Molly is taking this quite seriously. It’s sweet. And funny. 🙂

  1. Love the last picture of Josh and everyone doting on the new baby!:) Hope ya’ll are doing well. Tanner and Rachael said they saw ya’ll in Helen this weekend, what a small world. We miss you guys!

  2. Just finishing some school work and saw this. I’m wondering if anyone is up feeding the newborn right about now.

  3. This entire thing is too funny….I remember Babyland GH being MUCH smaller…maybe even like a 3 room building…when did they get so fancy?? And the oath? I seriously laughed out loud at the pic of Molly with her hand raised…I know baby Drew has already been face down on the floor at least a time or 3, right????
