It has been a long trip for sure. I never thought I would survive leaving the boys for two weeks, but knowing they were home having fun with their friends and doing their tae kwon do, and being taken so well care of by my parents has made it so much easier. That being said, I can't wait to get my arms around them!!!! They are such troopers with all of this, and they are so excited to meet their sister. She has been carrying around the book we sent to her for the last 10 days and today she started kissing their pictures. With her smile, all the boys in our house are in big trouble! I've already told her that cute won't take her quite as far with me as it does with daddy!
|She has already learned that when she takes her bows out, she has to take them to daddy to get them back in, mommy has stopped that game already!|
For now, we are planning to take things one day at a time and see how she does. We have been so blessed here, and her behavior has been amazing, and are hoping of course it keeps up, but who knows! We are going to try to not overwhelm her with too many people, but here she has loved to go out and be around people, so I think she will be okay. No parties for a little, but we do want to see everyone!!
|These are the 5 kiddos from our travel group. This pretty much sums it up...the little girl on the left is looking for her mom, who is trying to hide behind the couch so she doesn't scream. It was just as funny to watch as it seems :)|
|This is our travel group. It was a great group of people to travel with, it was nice to have other families to go through all of this with!|
|A girl's gotta have shoes, right?|
