First Haircut

Zeke got his first haircut with us last weekend. He did really well. We go to a friend's house once a month for a 'haircut party' where we get a great deal on cuts & a chance to hang out and chat for a while. We have discovered that Zeke does really well for appointments & all things medical. We had an all day appointment a couple of weeks ago with the Children's Hospital Cleft Team and they (& we) were amazed at how well he sat and took directions for the various assessments. Though we have only been home 2 months this week, he acts & blends with our family like he's been with us much longer. Here are a few photos from the cut-
He's not quite sure what to think

Handsome Boy!

Look who's 4!!

This past Saturday Maddy turned 4. It's so hard to believe how fast the time has flown by - watching our baby girl turn into quite a little pre-schooler. Last week I was going through our 2010 photos to do a back-up of them & thought it might be fun to share a few. I wish I could do one for each month, but I have to confess that we lost our camera somewhere along the way and didn't buy a new one until the few weeks before we left for China (thus I have a few 'missing months' of photos).

Thankful Thursday

Today, as I get ready to return to work on Monday, I am thankful to have been able to spend the past 2 months with my family. These last 6 weeks at home have been absolutely priceless to spend as a family of four. We have been able to have quite a few play dates, go see family & just spend lots of quality time at home. Although my ever mounting 'to do' list still has many things left undone, I know that some things can wait. Besides, those things aren't going anywhere, right?

I am also so blessed by the outpouring of support, gifts, & love from so many people that have welcomed Zeke home in a big way. It's not always easy to know goes on in the mind of a 2 year old, but I hope in some small way he knows that he is loved. We are amazed at how God has woven him into the fabric of our immediate & larger family in such a short time. It would be hard to imagine what life would be like without him.
