A new post . . . Finally!!

Sorry for taking so long to add a new post to the blog. We have suddenly found ourselves with much less free time on our hands than we were used to having! Wonder why??

Paul William is adjusting wonderfully. We are truly blessed to be this little guy's parents. We stop and pinch ourselves every day asking, "did we REALLY go all the way to China and bring him home?". It truly has been an amazing journey and it just keeps getting better.

Paul William is now sleeping with Mama, loves to take a bath, likes to change clothes and wear new clothes and is just as happy as can be. He loves to play with all his new toys.

We recently had our first photo session with a professional photographer. Her name is Carla Blankenship. We did the session at the Green Mountain Nature Trail in Huntsville on Sunday afternoon August 5th. It was hot as blue blazes outside and Paul William was not wanting to cooperate. I can't believe that Carla was able to get the pictures of him that she did. Some of the photos are posted in an online gallery. Click the link below to take a look.

We will try to post more later as time permits. HAH!!!

Greg and Mary Louise!! The pictures are Wonderful!!! He is so precious! The one with all four of you is so good. Reminded me of a rainy night in Guangzhou, China and a certain "red couch"! Love, Monica

He looks so happy, content, and so full of energy! Imagining your photo session just made me smile! I took my boys (who will be 4 on Sunday) to have pictures done last Friday, and it exhausted me! (We were inside in air conditioning too!)
I can't wait to meet him! I'm so sorry that we didn't make it to the New Citizens' Celebration!
