The evening we arrived home, we ordered pizza since it was so late. It was so nice to have our family of five all around the table. Noelle gets excited when it's time to get in her booster chair - that means food! She actually ate some pizza that evening for us!! She's sleeping pretty well for us, although we've had a few interruptions last night with the tornado warnings, etc..
Noelle is doing very well and starting to adjust to her new family. While in China she was quiet for us and only started opening up more right before we left. Well now that we are home, she's a lot more outgoing and very vocal! She's started saying "Mama" and holds her hands up for Mommy to pick her up and we thought we heard a "Dada" today when she put her hands up for Daddy to pick her up. I ran to the store to pick up a few items earlier this afternoon and left all the kiddos with Daddy. She was eating lunch and fell asleep at the table. Daddy didn't capture the picture (sorry!).
I'm thankful that Bobby decided to take rest of this week off. I couldn't imagine him returning to work today - we've been taking turns with naps to help balance out getting some rest from the jet lag.
Please keep checking in! We'll be posting more as well as the Gotcha video as we go along! Enjoy the photos!
We are just so much in awe that she's finally home with us and we all love her very much!!
Bobby, Heather, Christian, Savannah and Noelle
