Well, that was fast.  Remember this post about getting the visa process started?  Well, I managed to get all of our vital records ordered and they came yesterday!  That was super fast!  I was expecting them to take weeks and weeks.  And aren't they lovely with their special stickers?

It is fun to have the special stickers with the seal of Michigan on them all.  I love the state motto, "Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam circumspice"  which is Latin for, "If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you."
Yep, that's Michigan.

Now we have to wait until we can get Quinn's birth certificate and then we can start on his passport process, which requires a photo of him with his eyes open, on a white background.  Hummm...that is going to take some doing.  And it has to meet certain dimensions too.  I think it would be better if I try and do this one myself instead of enduring the torture, like last time when we took the big boys to get theirs done.  I am a bit concerned about the timing of that all.  Right now the State Department is saying it's going to take 4-6 weeks, which we have about 10 weeks before we leave, but we also have two weeks to go before we can get his birth certificate.  Anyway, pray with me about the timing of this all!  And for a decent passport photo for the kid.

  1. I hear you on the passport thing. We have to get one for our son when we go register his birth with the US embassy next month. Umm, have they ever tried taking a passport photo of a 4 month old wiggly baby?!? :) Probably not... Good luck!

    The multi-shot setting will be your friend!! ;)


You are clever, tell me whatcha think!
