Spring: A New Beginning

While we were gone Spring sprung here (well, except for these pesky snow showers--but I'm just going to ignore those for now).  The irises and lilies have popped out of the ground, the robins have returned and peepers are busy peeping down at the pond.  Kind-of a fun time to be starting out our "new" life together as a family of 5. :)

Just wanted to post a quick update about how our first days at home have been.  M & T have been beyond our wildest imaginations amazing!  Beza is also doing awesome.  She only wakes up once or twice at night to eat (from her schedule at HH) and then goes right back to sleep. 

She had her first doctor's appointment on Monday.  She's in the 10th percentile for her height and weight--yay!  And she's also doing great developmentally (yay, again!).  Little Miss rolls over, sits by herself and can say the usual da-da's, ma-ma's and ba-ba's. :)  But the poor girl had a fever yesterday and the saddest face all day long--I think from the vaccine the day before.  Today she was back to her cheery, smiley self.

J and I are finally getting over the jet lag and our days have been very good.  We are so thankful. :)

Just a few pictures from the first days at home. 

 First ride in the car seat on the way home from the airport.  She just kept smiling.

 M and T showing her all of the toys. (Reaching for the snail.)

 M insists on them dressing alike every day. :)

The crew snuggled together (nevermind my exhausted get-up ;).


  1. She fits in perfectly! What a beautiful girl and what a good looking family! :O) Welcome home, sweet girl!

    Much love,
    Future Mama
