The Best Laid Plans...

Sam pushing Kate in the "Baby Train"
Since bringing Kate home we have been doing a lot
of just this: hanging out in our p.j.s


Dan on diaper duty.


"Why yes, I can sit up by myself"



"Do y'all do Pilates?"


My master plan was to wrap up Bao Bei Baby on New Years Eve and begin a new blog dedicated to the whole family beginning January 1st. You've got to admit, that would have been so perfect right? And yet...Somehow I just have not found the time to pen a meaningful farewell and launch a new era. Sigh ~ So my NEW plan is to keep this blog going until Kate's first birthday (June 6th) and begin working on a family blog in the meantime. So, here are a few pictures of Ms. Kate. We have been home for 2 weeks now and she has been settling in very well. In fact we are surprised by what a seamless transition this has been. She continues to be a very sweet easy darling baby. She eats and sleeps well and has a very happy disposition. I am so grateful that JOH required the education plan because we felt it prepared us for how to handle Kate's transition to her new life. We have mostly stayed around the house with her and had limited interaction with other people. We have kept things VERY low key and I am thoroughly convinced that this is the way to go! She sure is a fun baby! Once again, we have been incredibly blessed!

What is Dan dressed up in? If that's a diaper in his pocket I'd say he's ready to do battle with a stinky diaper. Glad to know all is well with y'all.
