Well, I did it

I never thought I'd give Tessa bangs. I've just never been a huge fan of bangs. Well, after battling her hair in her eyes for a couple of months now, I gave in. Her hair grows straight forward into her face, and it's just not thick enough yet to really hold a barrette. So, we trimmed her up. I think she looks pretty darn cute! :) Also...snapped this picture with Jake last cute is Tessa playing DS with her big brother? :) And Sara is my little love bug...lovin' on her baby sister.

Six Months Home...

I can't believe Tessa has been home for six months. On one hand, it feels like we were just in Taiwan yesterday...on the other, it feels like we've been a family of five for a long time.

Tessa melts into our family like she was always meant to be here. And I believe all of my kids were meant to be ours. They each fit so perfectly. So different, yet so ours.

This past month has been one of sickness. Nothing major, just constantly battling one snotty nose after another. Some sun would be helpful. :)

Other than that, life continues on at a good pace...a blessed pace...and I am at such peace with my family and my role as a mom. It's what I was meant to do...

Here are a few cuties of my cutie (I really need to add pics of Jake & Sara too, huh)!! First pigtails! Aren't they CUTE?? :)
