June has been my favorite!!!!! We had so many fun things going on this month, friends visiting, our first date night since bring him home, our first road trip/family beach trip/sleeping away from home trip, building a playset in our back yard, preparing for Davis’ 2nd birthday party, potty training, and family coming into town to celebrate! It was a busy but awesome month! Again, Davis started talking more! His latest words were “more” and “help.” His “more” sounded like a muffled “ma ma” and his “help” sounded like a yelping puppy, but I love hearing his little voice.
Our friends from Illinois came to visit us for a weekend! We got to hang out for a few days in Korea while they were meeting their son for the first time and going to court. Their court date was one week before ours, and they brought their son, Deacon, home one week before we brought Davis home! It was so great to have them here, and have both our boys HOME! Last time we were together, we cried, we prayed, we wished, we dreamed about our boys finally being home. So this trip, to actually see them together was pretty incredible! We cannot wait until our next visit!
We went on our first road trip to Hilton Head so I could shoot THIS
wedding! It was amazing once we were there, but Davis is not on board for long car rides yet. He doesn’t really sleep well in the car and our little fella with no nap = no fun! We broke the first trip into two days and visiting with our friends in Georgia. The next day however, we had a grumpy boy who got a random bloody nose and tons of traffic. It took us forever to get there! BUT we did get there and we took Davis for his first walk on the beach!
He Loves the ocean, but hated the sand… see his grumpy face on the far right… that is his thoughts of sand on his hands or feet. My thoughts too bud…
The ride home was MUCH better! We were on the road by 6:00 so I think that really helped. ***Note to self, leave for road trips EARLY!!
Daddy and Uncle Brad built a pretty awesome play set for Davis in our back yard! Davis loves it!! We got to see our friends Lori and Davis again twice this month!
We ordered art canvases for our den of our amazing family session and hung them up!! We are in love with them!!! More on our family session with Chesley
My sister and her kiddos came down for Davis’ birthday celebration!! Loved our time playing with them, and so fun to watch them all play together.
Birthday party fun!! Our boy is 2!!!! What a fun day with our friends coming out to play and celebrate with us. I remember this day so well last year. So many tears shed for our boy since we couldn’t be with him. So many tears shed for Davis’ birthmom. Such an incredible day for our boy but so hard on us to not be with him. In Korea, their first birthday is a really big deal, and it was so hard not being able to celebrate with him. So this year, we wanted to have a big celebration together to celebrate our little guy being HOME, for good!
Oh, and we started potty training…. What was I thinking! But no, really! He did so well!
Such a good month! All around! We are making it! Learning how to be parents. Learning how to meet his needs. Learning that our hearts are more capable of love than we ever knew! Our boy is simply amazing. We are so tremendously lucky that out of all the babies in the world, God choose us to get to love, cherish, and parent this one. My heart may just burst with love for him at any moment!!
