Exciting News

Well today we just got news that the hearing will be on June 19th at 7:45am.  We are very excited to finally be offical.  We will be having a busy week because on June 20th the moving company comes and then we are off to PA on that Friday.  So lots of exciting things going on in the Lechman Family.  Greyson’s GAGA is coming to Nashville to help with packing and visit with her new grandson.  She is really excited to see him again, he has gotten so big since she last saw him.

Greyson is doing so well, he will be 3 months in 5 days.  WOW where did that time go, so fast.  He is starting to keep his head up so he can sit in the Bumbo seat, he is sleeping though the night, and loves to laugh.  He loves to talk and make noise.  This past weekend he went into the pool, he enjoyed it so much he feel asleep.  We are looking forward to spending a week at the beach with him in July.  I will attach some pictures so you can see how big he is getting.

Thanks so much for all the support and love from everyone.  All my Nashville Friends you will be dearly missed, thank you for everything.  If you want to see us before we leave let me know, we would love to see you.

Life with Greyson

What can I say I love being Mommy, Greyson is the best thing ever.  He is so much fun to watch.  Greyson loves the morning, he is so smiley and loves to talk.  I think he feels fresh from sleeping most of the night.  On Wednesday night he slept for 6 hours the first stretch of the night, which is really good for him and then he went to sleep on his own and slept in the pack n play the whole night.  Sometimes he would wake up early and not got back to sleep in the crib. So that makes one happy momma.  So ever since then we have been staying in the crib the entire night just up for feedings.

He is also growing like a weed, he is growing out of his 3 month clothes and he isn’t even 2 months.  He has his next doctor appointment on May 7th for some shots, my first shots with him.  I am scared for him.  I hope it doesn’t make him to upset.  At his last appointment he weighted 9 lbs 12 oz and 22 1/2 inches long.  So we are excited to see how much he has grown since then.

We had our first post placement about 3 weeks ago and our next one is this Thursday.  We have to have 3 before they can start the finalization of the adoption.  Post Placement is when our social worker comes to our home to check on Greyson and how we are doing.  After the 3 are completed they told us they would put a rush on the finalization because we are moving to PA.  They said it usually takes 4-6 months but we will get to be done in the middle of June.  Otherwise we would have to do another home study in PA which is a lot of paperwork and money.  So they said that they would do this for us.  So we will pray that everything goes into place.  Since Greg will have to start his job in PA on May 7th.  He will be gone a couples weeks at a time until we can move up with him.

We are very excited to move up to PA, we have found a house to live in and it will be 9 mins from Greg’s Parents home.  The house we are going to live in is a log cabin.  Can’t wait to take pictures and show you.  It’s really cool.

So if you can continue to pray for a smooth transition, that would be great.

Thanks for all your support

I am so in love…..

I am the happiest mommy ever because I have such a wonderful baby.  He is such a blessing and I can’t thank everyone who supported or prayed for this miracle.  Everyday we bond closer and closer.  So far we have had my aunt dody come from Maryland and stay a week with us.  We were sad to say good-bye to her today, but look forward to seeing her in July at the Anglin Family Reunion.  One of our favorite things to do is go for walks and check out what Nashville has to offer.  We are looking forward to checking out all the sites before we move to Greensburg, PA.  Our plan to move is the middle of June.  We are waiting until everything is finalized before moving.  Greg will be going to PA to look at the house we might be renting so I can’t wait to see pictures.  So we have lots of plans in our near future and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for us. While we are still in Nashville I will love to see everyone before we leave.  Let me know if you want to meet for lunch, or if you want to come over and keep us company.  I want to start writing in here more often but as you know its hard to get some free time with a little one.  I will try my best to keep up.   Thanks again for everything.

Heading Back to Nashville

It has been a long month but a great one for sure.  I finally was blessed with a child.  As you all know that was a long road and it all paid off for sure.  I always wondered if this day would come and sure enough it did.  I just prayed everyday and waited patiently and God blessed me.  It taught me to be patient and think, pray for other people in need.  Sometimes when you want something so bad you only pray for yourself but the last 6 months I have been praying for my friends and family most, I did pray to be matched but not everyday, I know in my heart that GOD was working on that for me and look I got such a beautiful baby boy.  I couldn’t be more happier.  Greyson has opened my heart so much and I can’t wait to watch him grow in to a young man.  Just remember when you are going though a hard time to think about others and not just yourself and GOD will see you in a different light. 

WE are sad to leave all our family and friends in FLorida but really looking forward to getting back to Nashville so Greyson can be with his daddy and meet his new dog Tommy.  We are going to be very busy when we get back to Nashville,  Greyson will need to have 3 post placement meetings with our social worker before we move to PA.  So lots of packing and preparing before we move away.  Its going to be a crazy few months, but looking forward to everyday. 

I can’t wait for all my friends in Nashville to finally meet the little guy they all have been praying for so long. 


Thanks so much for all the support and love from everyone.  We are so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives.   Love you all….

Ashley, Greg, Greyson and Tommy (dog)

Life with a baby

Parenthood is the best.  I never thought how wonderful it would be, I love watching, holding and cuddling him.  I have gotten some great shots of him and of course I have already took over 400 pictures.  I love Greyson so much and thank god everyday for this buddle of joy.

Greyson’s First Doctor Visit

March 16th Gaga Birthday

His First Walk in the Stroller, he loves being outside.  Just like his mamma.  One of his other favorites is sitting on the back porch.

I love when he lays on my chest.

Wow motherhood is the best!

I am so in love with Greyson he is just the best thing that ever happened to me.  We are so blessed to have such a great baby.  Today we went to our first doctor appointment and he didn’t even cry.  He was perfect, she poked him and he didn’t care.  He checked out great and he gained 6 oz since his birth and is 21 inches.  I did the announcement this week and they came out great.  We have been on a walk, had a bath, sat outside which is his favorite, we have said our prayers, he has meet so many people and has been loved on so much.  HE is one happy boy.

Today is Gaga’s birthday and Sunday is his daddy’s birthday so we are having a big birthday bash for them on Sunday night.  So lots of great things happening in the Anglin household.  We are so happy and thank everyone for all the lovely messages.

Love, Ashley, Greg and Greyson

Today was a beautiful day because we got to meet our little boy.


The Big Day

The day has come where in 3 1/2 hours we meet our son for the first time. Still can’t believe that I am a mommy in a few hours, I have been waiting for this for a long time and never thought the day would come.  I am feeling all kinds of emotions.  We arrived to my parents house and my mom is such a wonderful lady she got so many wonderful things for the baby, it made everything come full circle for me.  ITs so great to be in my hometown and to be with my family during this wonderful experience.  I got a good night sleep and woke up and sat outside on my parents porch which is my favorite spot when I come home, and read the bible and did my morning prayers.  I prayed that today will go smoothly and peacefully full of love and happiness.  I also prayed for all the people that have been part of our journey.  We feel so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives that care so much for us and our son.  Can’t wait to post a picture and his name for everyone to see and hear.  I can’t wait to meet the little guy and pick him up and give him the hug I have been waiting for a long time.  I love him so much and I don’t even know who he is, and looks like.

Thank you so much for all our support and we will keep you posted.

Love, Ashley, Greg and our little boy.
