A Few For Now...

We are home and adjusting well!! I will admit it is hard for me to not be going 100 miles per hour, but through jet lag, nine hour time change,the adjustment of having a new baby in the house, and the adjustment of the new baby in the house to us, God is showing me I MUST slow down! So, I am trying to listen and soak in every precious moment with our new son! He is absolutely, wonderfully perfect!!! He is our little brown sugar (his Aunt Susie's name for him...which I LOVE)!!

I have over 1000 pictures from our trip to pick up Samuel (Yacob) Jacob Koceich! I plan on doing a daily journal entry for each day of our trip, but for now, I just couldn't wait any longer to share some of my favorites. You will probably see these again in later posts. Just a few for today...more to come!!!

As always, your pictures are gorgeous. I feel like I was there with you after looking at them. I cannot WAIT to hear all about your trip! Don't kill yourself to get pictures edited and posted; you have plenty of time for that. Rest and enjoy that baby. :)
