2 months home!

2 months ago, Emersyn, my brother and I, were stepping off the plane from Korea and had a welcome party ready to greet us!

While I'm sure they were all happy to see my brother and I, they were really there to meet this cutie!

Love this moment as she takes it all in!
(and how dirty her hair was after the many hours of traveling!)

We have such a loving and supportive group of family and friends!

Which is why I believe that Emersyn continues to do well and she could not be loved more!

2 months in, she still only responds to Hui-a, still only parrots a few words in English, sleeps thru the night, loves swimming, still enjoys bath time, loves being outside, still eating lots of Korean food, but finally starting to like more Americanized meals, loves the dogs (calls all three of them 'hiloh', also known as Shiloh!), enjoys toys and car rides, addicted to her bottle (now filled with lactose free milk!), likes to pick on her brother and sister, enjoys screaming at the top of her lungs, likes to have her hair fixed, has a slight shoe addiction, calls both me and my husband, mama, and both my mom and dad, papa, unfortunately likes to hit and scratch, but gives unsolicited kisses and hugs, and seems to genuinely enjoy life...

We are blessed to have her and while it's only been two months, it seems as though she's been here all along!

And just for fun...
our first moment being united as a family of five!

The sisters taking pics of each other!  Zoey took this one!

Emersyn took this one!

After our first day of all three kids home, I can tell you it's going to be a looooooong summer!!  I love having them all home, don't get me wrong, but boy is there a lot more fighting and complaining of boredom around here!  Most days I think you'll be able to find us out at the pool or in an air conditioned library. :)

So let me ask, what are you doing with your kids this summer????
