Life is good

We've been home together for 4 days now and things continue to go smoothly in this happy household!

Last night we got some VERY good sleep - 10 hours!!! Josiah goes down very easily as long as I am close to him, so we've been camped out on the floor the last few nights. He does like to party at around 1:00 am til about 3:00, but Mama certainly can't complain since all around he's doing perfectly!

We're working on getting into some sort of schedule, but realize it will take a while to set a routine. So far days are spent at home sleeping, eating, exploring, and playing. Life is GOOD!

Our first post placement visit with our social worker was this afternoon. She thinks Josiah is doing beautifully! Throughout the next 6 months, she'll meet with us several more times until the adoption is "officially official".

The little peanut is taking his very first nap in his crib right now! Yippee! He's been sleeping for about 45 minutes....and the only thing keeping me from creeping into his room to stare at his sweet face is our fantastic video monitor. Love it!

Here are some pictures from the last few days. Enjoy!

  2. I've followed your blog daily for some time now and have rejoiced with each step in your adoption! We are so happy for you and Josiah!! Your blog is fun to read - lots of beautiful photos and not an overabundance of writing - great for another busy mom! We brought our son Ezekiel HaBhin home from Korea in July 2008. God bless!

  13. Sounds like you are doing SO well. Yes! We get about the same amount of sleep at night...never all in one stretch. We usually have a midnight (or so) wake-up call and then back to sleep for more (after a bottle). Continue to love each other up...it is the best!
