7 Months

I can't believe how far this girl has come in her 7 months! Today she is 7 months old! One month ago, I sobbed for her, wanting her here so badly, feeling like she would never be here. I feel SO thankful! My heart is full and we are all falling so in love with her and her with us.
She is such a happy little baby. Even with an ear infection- she loves being around people and she likes to "joke". I am serious- she will laugh about something and then anticipate you doing it again and will belly laugh about it. It is so funny!

Adjustment is going smoothly. Our 7 yr. old, first born is learning how to share the drama spotlight..... ready for the new normal to set in. This week was hard- good but hard. Lots of people want to meet her and we are so thankful for all of the open arms! She loves it- It has been hard this week taking care of everyone and being jetlagged.... here's to hoping next week will be a little more "normal"- if there is such a word. She wakes up with a big smile on her face- it is so refreshing and I am loving being her momma! She fits right in! God knew just who we needed in our family- he's so good like that! So, so thankful!


  1. Oh Erin, she's such a scrumptious, jolly, sweet baby! Our town is so lucky to have her here! I am so lucky to know your family, and your newest family member. Thank you SO much for sharing her. That first picture captures her so well! I love how she looks at you and makes silly faces to see your reaction! She is SOOO amazing....I'm already dying to snuggle her again!

  2. Jillian is just beautiful!!!! I am so happy for you all! Love seeing all the sweet pics! I know that everyday will bring more and more joy to your household! Maybe sometime we will be back through Lebanon and I will get to meet her! :)

  3. Yeah! It makes me happy to see her at home with her family! I'm sure I will have more questions for you once we get home and a little settled in. Nine days and we will be HOME with our girl so be ready for the questions. :)

  4. Such beautiful little girl! Her eyes just dance! So happy you are all together ~ forever! May your transition continue down a smooth and loving road. Blessings to all of you ~
