one week :)

Naomi has been home one week!  Here are some things we know about her:
  • She is very loud :)
  • She loves to be held
  • She is B-U-S-Y!
  • She is very afraid of animals (our dog in particular)
  • She is extremely girlie :).... Loves purses, nail polish, lip gloss, & shoes
  • She LOVES babies :)
  • She loves water..... bath, pool, etc
  • She seems to favor blondes when we have visitors??
  • She loves peanuts (gets giddy even:), fruit, and meat
  • She is extremely hot natured.... She sweats sitting still in our air conditioned house
  • She is so much smarter than I ever dreamed! She knows some sign language & understands almost everything we say.
  • She is SO loving!! She gives lots of hugs & kisses!
  • And... she loves her MAMA :)
She has brought lots of life into our home.  It's a very surreal feeling to have her here after this very long year.  I wish I could say this week has been a breeze, but we all know real life in NOT.  We have had our challenges.  The boys are working on make-up work from school.  We have had lots of obligations to keep. We have had lots of visitors.  And while Naomi, for the most part, has taken it in stride, we are all pretty tired.  We have had meals brought to us all week & I honestly don't know how we would've made it without them.  They have been truly a God-send. (We LOVE our church family). Our brains don't seem to be functioning correctly (lol)..... They say that it is the jet lag.  We forgot Jeb at Dayschool one day..... And I have forgotten a number of other things this week.  Oh well, thank goodness for grace :) 

We went on Jeb's last Dayschool field trip :( ....  Naomi played like she was one of the group! :)

They played themselves out with our sweet neighbor Lilly! :)

She loved playing with friends visiting...

Our sweet Sunday School class had her a welcome home party :)
It was like Christmas!!

It took about an hour, but then she was all warmed up!

Our class got her this precious bike :))  Miles wants to ride too!

She can drink out of a big cup pretty good...

She got quite the loot :)

Then more visitors...

Aunt Lisa

And Mamaw :)

Then our first trip to church! She did great:)  Even played in the nursery WITHOUT crying a bit!

 Then our first swim at Nana's :)

Thank you Lord for such a great week!

"I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus" Philippians 1:6


  1. Its amazing how it all works out. She just seems like she goes with the flow and has been there forever. So happy to see how well things are going.

  2. It sure sounds like this week has been a crazy whirlwind! It is amazing how much help your church family can be, and just how God puts the right people in the right places in your life for every need. We can't wait to meet your family next week, our boys are SO excited they are going to get to meet some new friends, and have already begun talking about what toys to show everyone first!

  3. These pictures bring my heart such joy. She looks to HAPPY! I especially love the one of her with her hands on her hips, such sass :) Please hug and kiss her for me...we miss her.
