A Year Ago . . .

today Naomi and I landed in Seattle via China (after an ungodly amount of travel). We were finally a family of five.

Picture 12/3/08

I thank God daily for the gift of my family. I also pray daily that it will be easier soon. This sweet little Naomi is giving me a run for my money. It feels like we are back to the first months home. . . she is back in our bed at night and needs to be with me almost %100 of the time. I am sooo TIRED. This to shall pass. Please tell me it will.

P.S. Yes, I was crying in this picture, children do CRAZY things to a momma's emotions.

You looked a heck of a lot better than I did when our plane landed. I am still in awe that a year has passed and how much your sweet angels have grown. You are one lucky mama and they are just as lucky to have you! Happy 1 year anniversary!

Hi Amy,

I left you a message on my blog, but that probably wasn't the right way to do it! Can you email me at I'll give you the full scoop on what we'll be doing in Seattle, and if the planets line up, I'd love to visit with you!

That little girl has had a big
adjustment this past year. I'm
hoping for both your sakes that it's the tail end of that adjustment, culture shock, or what ever. With a year under both your belts, things are bound to look up!
Hi to the "boys."
