catching up







Wow, I don't even know where to begin. I feel like I'm on one of those " When life comes at you fast"" commercials. We are home & doing well. Still in survival mode for now. Trying to establish some sort of routine & finally putting away our luggage today :)

Vania is a joy ! My oldest son Zane said it best the night we brought her home."We are so lucky to have her in our family ! She is just a perfect fit. I am so happy. "

I thought I would post some pictures of the last few days to share a little of what Vania has been up too. She also had a pediatrician appointment last Tuesday. Weighing in at 22lbs. 5oz and is 32 3/34 in. tall. After all she's been through since October she has still managed to gain a little weight & height. We have a referral to the Columbus Children's Hospital International Clinic Feb. 12th where they will do a more thorough assessment of health, development , nutrition etc.

The kids are doing great with her ! I love to sit back & watch them play together. It is still hard to believe that she is finally here. Her name ( which is her given name ) means God's gracious gift & that she truly is !

Once we actually get sleep & get better at multitasking our now family of SIX I'll try to update more :)

Okay ... one funny story. I was making Vania rice today in our rice cooker & when I went to add my 1 3/4 cup of water she snatched the measuring cup out of my hand & there it went down the hatch. Lov'in the H2O :)

Zane was absolutly right...she is the perfect fit for your family! She looks like she is already feeling like that is her "Home Sweet Home"! I love the pic of her in her high heels! Looks like she loved her Haitian spaghetti meal. Can't wait to see her again! Also, can't wait to see more over-the-top-cute pictures!

Still doesnt feel real to me either that she is HERE!these are just some of the adorable pics of that little sweetheart. We had such fun hanging out with you all last night. You guys just swooped her right into that great family bond that you have and she is so happy! Those little hands are just quick as a snake striking whenever there's food near her. Bless her little heart.
