Medical Exam Day!

Day 4......still happy!

No meltdowns, no tears, just lots of hugs, fun, games, playground, food, snuggles, and smiles.

I think there are a few things working in our favor that has made this transition be the very best it can be.
Praise the Lord for that.

Today was their medical exam.
All went well.
There appears to be some remaining issues medically that we will need to address but I am not the least bit surprised about that. I anticipated this especially considering Joey's size and some things that seem unresolved with Jacob's cleft issues.
But all in good time.

The clinic here cracks me up.
It feels a bit like you have been rocketed back to the 1950's and I kinda felt like I was in an episode of Leave it to Beaver.
Anyone seen the Beav?

The kids are being rockstars, we are all happy,(though exhausted), healthy and having fun hanging out together away from our normal everyday lives......and I for one, have loved seeing my husband out from behind a book for a day or two.
I had kinda forgotten what he looked like.
8 Days till home!


  1. The ring pops are cracking me up! ;) It sounds wonderful to spend some time as a family away from normal life while bonding and getting to know your "new family". ;) Hope you get a bit of rest soon. Enjoy!

    BTW - is there a story to go with the sign?!?

  2. I love the boys matching outfits!! Do it while you can!! I am so happy to hear how well things are going and I agree with the clinic there--very odd compared to here. You'll be home soon.

  3. So glad to read that all continues to go so well. Praising the Lord with you! You all are an amazing family--and your boys are simply precious. Praising God for the miracle of adoption.

  4. oh yes the lovely clinic visit. our poor little girl had to get 6 or 7 shots last year when we were!

  5. Are you going to run out of ring pops while you're there? :) Thanks for the bed reminder, too! :)

  6. Glad it went well and that ya'll are able to enjoy yourselves. But that sign! Sonia, I thought this was a family friendly blog?! :)

  7. So glad for the great update. It's wonderful to be there as a family (almost) on vacation, but not really. I'm so happy to hear how well things are going for everyone. The boys are just too precious dressed alike, too.
