To say I have personally had ups and downs the past month or so would be an understatement. I never in a million years would of thought that being a new parent to a 2yr old would be so hard. My boy is a good boy, we just need time to figure each other out. His personality is so different from my other children and I hope he becomes the happy go lucky child I'm used to someday. I can say that each and everyday he does something that just makes me love him a little more. He will not talk so this makes the fustration for both him and me extreme sometimes but I'm slowly learning what certain faces or body movements mean. He wants to please I can tell, everytime I scoop him up and tell him how proud I am of him he smiles from ear to ear. We will get there I know we will. For now though I will take every moody day, every mean look, every smile, laugh, shaking no of the head when I say "say momma" I will take it all because he is totally worth it. And someday I will have the child that every parent would be proud to say THIS IS MY SON! and he will have a mom that any boy would love to say THAT'S MY MOM, but for now we are a work in progress.

I can hardly believe it's been a whole month since we came home. All those long months of waiting longing to be with these boys. Time always seemed to just stand still and now I can't get time to wait a minute or two. In the last month the boys have had a lot of first, first plane ride 26hrs to be exact, first time to meet their brother and sisters who had been waiting forever, first time to ride in a carseat which has been going really great they love it, first time to sit in a REAL highchair where they can't run away while your trying to feed them, first time to go to the movies even if they did sleep, first icecream, the first can go on forever at this point. These boys have come a long way they love to be rocked constantly which is great but my house has went down hill and it's driving me insane.
