Life AFTER the Airport :)

Well, as you can imagine...life has been busy since leaving the airport:We've now been home 4 days and everyone seems to be adjusting well to "baby brother" entering the home....
Wes is simply adorable and sweet!! He is mellow and calm and precious! We couldn't have ASKED for a better addition to our family.....
Little Miss Princess Pants is "learning" to like her new role as BIG SISTER!! She's still not too sure about her baby brother...but that's an excellent post in itself with some really good pictures coming up next...so stayed tuned (LOL :) ....
My life hasn't really changed....just add one more needy little person...and well....i'm pretty used to this already....Doesn't phase me much.....
We've already been up to big school to visit the older 3...we've been to Wes's first dr. appt...we've eaten out a couple of times...We've hit Target and Costco...and well...WES IS AWESOME!! I just wear him in the sling and he loves looking around and taking it all in. He won't even let Daddy hold him at this point...(which makes daddy sad)...but I'm super happy about HOW MUCH HE LOVES and PREFERS me already!!
We've had lots of visitors...Aunt Kasey came to meet Wes...Jules and Poppy came by..Aunt Julie lane..and many friends...Little Wes will tolerate someone holding him for about a 1/4 of a second.....then .....
Then you get the LEAN towards Momma with both arms and the sad little cry:
Yes, i'm eating up this LOVE AFFAIR he has for me right now!! :)

*Oh ,and Daddy had the sign out in the yard so that all our neighbors could know that WES ARRIVED!!! So fun!!!
Well...we're blessed beyond words! Our little buddy has slept through the night since I had him in my arms...crazy i know!! He takes one great nap a day (giving me time to love on my other 5 littles) and wakes up smiling!! He's already learning to walk and is just doing GREAT!! I'm just constantly stopping and praying to God to THANK HIM for this miracle in our life!! It sincerely feels like a MIRACLE that he's HERE in our home...He's OURS...FOREVER!!!

**So, that's how we're rolling on day 4 home...more soon!! Thanks for checking in on us....Happy Sunday to you all, kj

  7. I love that little Wes is home! Not sure if you remember me, but we'd chatted when I just found out we were going to have to get a FBI check and hold our adoption up, and you had hit a snag. I love that God was so quick and faithful to answer the prayers of His daughters. For us, it was a waiver on the check, and for you it was bringing your son home! I am so encouraged by your (and so many others) stories of God's faithfulness throughout their adoption journeys.

  16. Ohh! The pictures are adorable. Your husband should talk to mine :). Bekah was the same way. She wanted mommy and only mommy. It was rough, but somewhere around six months she reached up for daddy and wanted to go to the store with him (yep, we both had tears in our eyes). SOOOOO excited for you guys!!!
