loving it

I promise that more pics and videos are coming but there is so much to share. So much is on my heart, the people of China, LynnMarie's past Its been amazing. The whole experience in general has just rocked.

I don't want to be naive. It will be hard. But I am going to enjoy these moments. Things are natural. She laughs and smiles so easily. She has gotten irritable a total of 2 times and both times tylenol has helped. I think she is still teething and has a cold so she hasn't felt good. Pray that this cold clears up. We bought a bulb suction thing yesterday and pretty much filled it up this morning, not too be too gross. She loves to eat bananas and steamed rolls. She takes her bottles at room temp.

How am I? This really could not have gone better. Michael and I share everything, diapers, bottles laughs and cries. She goes to bed and on her own and this morning woke up at 730. She woke up just 2 short times last night which really is no big deal.
It is heartbreaking to see the older children grieve. Its easy to read and prepare yourself but its hard. We have beautiful kids in our group.

I know our lives and hearts have been forever changed. God' hand has been on our journey since it began and it will be amazing to see what He does with LynnMarie's little life. So much to tell you, maybe later though. Right now I want to stare at the beauty in front of me.
Keep praying!!! Some of the babies have some yuckies in their noses.

When we had the "grieving older child" in our group, there wasn't anything anyone could do for us. AA wouldn't go to anyone else, she clung to us, even as unhappy as she was. They are probably very tired, so if their child will play with anyone else for an hour or two, these parents need sleep (it seemed like we didn't sleep at all the first week and very little the second).
You sound so wonderful! So glad for the frequent updates! Enjoy!
