Yessireeesir - we are HOME!

We are headed to Portland for JiJi's eye appointment this morning. Everything is going very well, better than I anticipated, actually! Not perfect, but close! Inappropriate noises and behaviors are falling away as if melted snow and the beautiful child that God created is emerging before our eyes. This is NOT to say that there are not difficult moments - hee hee!

We are both sleeping in large chunks at kind of odd hours, but we are getting there. Chicka and Zabi are adjusting beautifully to having a new sister and are being graciously patient and understanding.

MissE and IBoy are beyond awesome older siblings, love JiJi to pieces and have supremely helped hold down the fort in my absence. Papa is, as always, my hero and sweetie and can't get enough of his newest daughter.

We are, indeed, blessed beyond measure by our Blessed Redeemer and are eagerly anticipating His birthday in a few days, celebrating together with a new family member in our midst.

I am supremely busy, so my apologies in advance if I don't post again for a bit - I'll try, but realistically, my time is precious and I choose to spend it with my family and not on the computer.

God bless you all and a very, merry Christmas to each of you!
