I love my Family

I remember life before I had kids

(the good ol' days)


but seriously...
 there was something nice about being able
 to sleep whenever I wanted, 
eat a meal non-rushed, 
and feed my purse obsession...

but now I have these two in my life.

and when I see him smile

and take in the new 'world' around him

and call me Omma

it absolutely melts my heart.

And when I see my Big Girl

acting so grown up

and full of life

it makes me wonder where the last three and half years have gone.

I am so thankful that this is my family
and while we continue to grow closer to one another
I simply cannot imagine my life without them.

I love reading your posts! Charlie and Claire look amazing and I'm so happy to read about the joy this little one has brought you...hopefully I can convince my DH of another one too!

What a precious post. It is neat hearing an adoptees experience. As a parent about to bring home a child from Korea, I wonder how she will feel one day. I hope it is a lot like your thoughts. Beautiful post and beautiful family.
