all our blessings
the little girl finally came along. We have had a very busy year. We are blessed to welcome a precious little girl into our lot of testosterone. Hadley Joy is a happy wonderful little girl who is growing up way to fast.

The picture doesn't really do his feet justice but they are huge, and his hands are big and beefy too. He is a big boy, closing up on the same weight as Hadley. He may eat us out of house and home.
The first time Mathew got to see Grandma. He was so smiley. I think he may like the attention of the camera.

This was the first kind of play time that the two babes had together. This was a good ice breaker for them. Hadley was a little less threatened by him after this. She was just talking away to him and he ended up bouncing around the circles a couple of times. He loves to jump. On Monday Hadley was mimicking his cries and wanting to be held a lot (understandably). The second day was a lot better she even played peekaboo with him during a short car ride. Mathew has such a good personality,very easy going. I am really enjoying him.

This is little Mathew at the airport, with grandpa, on what would be our first attempt at leaving San Luis. I looked at the wrong flight time and as it turned out we got to spend another night in lovely California. It was nice to be able to get to know the little man just a little bit more before bringing him home. As the fire raged on and fire truck, police cars roared onto the seen of the accident at In and Out this is how the event unfolded for Mathew. Someone who new him called his foster family to ask why he was at In and Out, I thought that was great, so many people looking out for him.
Mathew and Uncle Walter at the airport. What a precious boy.
We finally made it home on Monday. A day later then we had planned, the second attempt went off without a hitch, we are so happy to be home. The boys are having fun with Mathew and we let them stay home on Tuesday because we missed them and so the could get to know Mat a little bit. Zane did the introductions for the dogs, so now he has formally met everyone.
