Airport Homecoming

I just realized that I never posted our pictures from our airport homecoming! We ended up getting stuck overnight in Detroit due to one of our flights being delayed. It was a complete bummer because we were SO ready to be home. And also because we didn't have our luggage so I only had the bare minimum of makeup and we didn't have enough clothing for the inches of snow. YUCK. We ended up being gone a total of 17 days.

None of it mattered when we arrived in Birmingham and b-lined it off the plane and straight to our friends and family waiting there for us! We were SO happy to see our people!!!!


These two missed each other SO much!

Two Months with Mia!

Wow! Two months already! After looking back at the "one month" post, I feel like we have made STRIDES in a short month! I didn't start these posts for myself but man, that helps me feel so much better! It's hard feeling like you are doing the same things over and over and not feeling like you are getting anywhere, but we are!

Food is still Mia's absolute favorite thing. She LOVES to eat. I did find a few things this month that she doesn't like and, just last night, she wouldn't eat dinner! We had hamburgers and I politely told her that she's an American now, she better learn to love them! haha! She is doing better with not eating anything and everything she can find. That's good because she's starting to realize that food is always close by and she'll never go hungry again! She's not doing the "grazing" thing she was before either, so that's good.

This and That!

Time to attempt a little catch up around here! 

It snowed a little a few weeks ago! If you know me then you know how I HATE HATE to be cold. Well, my babies drug me out into the snow for some fun! We had a blast! Mia liked the snow for about 2 seconds. Brooks liked it until his feet got cold. He really is mine! haha!

 Hot chocolate to warm back up!

Mia's first mani at the office! haha!

Brooks has this little monkey in his class at school. Each of the kids take turns taking it home. We had a fun weekend with Marvin the Monkey!

There aren't many pictures in the post of Griffin and Peyton because they are always doing this...

We went to the circus with our cousins! It was fun, the show wasn't as great as it usually is. I'm kinda sad it's over for good.

Before the circus we had to have labs done. Reece tagged along this time!

Then it was pizza time! These two!!!
Sigh. Then we had another transfusion day. They will be every 21 days right now. It's a very long day. Even longer this time because this time about an hour in we received a call from the daycare that Brooks goes to and he had hit his head and had a gash that needed stitches. Josh and I were an hour away. Talk about stabbing a momma in the heart. I quickly called my sister who was at our office and she was there to get B in less than 5 minutes. Josh rushed back to town and was there just in time for our little buddy to get stitched up. He is one tough little dude. He never even flinched! When they were finished he said, "time to go to Target!" That's my boy!

 We took Mia to the beach for the first time! We needed a little break and it was perfect. She didn't love the sand but would have jumped right in the water! She's going to LOVE it this summer!

 That profile!!!!!!!!

 This past Saturday was China's New Years Day! This sassy pants right here had a great day celebrating! 

 We also went to The Factory while we were at the beach! LOVE this place!
I think that somewhat gets us caught up! Toodles!
