valentine birth day

we had a very eventful valentine's day this year!  we woke up to a phone call telling us that our niece violet was ready to be born!  this put pete's parents in a bit of a pickle...because they were at our house in el paso.  so...they hopped on a plane and actually made it to the hospital in athens, GA on time. she was just born...16 days before her due date...at a healthy 6 lbs 4 oz!  I've only seen pictures on my phone, but she is gorgeous with dark hair and big, full lips.  we can hardly wait to snuggle her!  and I can't wait to take pictures of her.
we did get to share a meal of papa's delicious heart shaped pancakes before they left, and the girls loved that.
the rest of the day we just sort of hung around the house. we made our new guess of a wait list number out of valentine-ish things.  we think we are around number 20!!  yay!!

the girls wore bows that have the ethiopian flag symbol on them today.  I got them from a fellow adoption mama blogger that adopted with holt and LOVE them.
and we also gave pete/daddy his valentine cards and he thought they were pretty great.  thanks snapfish.

and we ended the day with five guys burgers and fries for dinner. french fries are so romantic :).
we are so loved by our Father.  so in love with our family.  and so thankful to add more love to our hearts with the birth of miss violet!  happy valentine's and birthday!
