Week 1 in review

What a week! it is crazy to think we have only been home for a week! WOW! Seems like the 4th was forever ago!

The week has had it's ups and downs, but all in all, everyone is adjusting to being a family of 4! It is amazing to me how tired I am at the end of the day with 2 kiddos! I'm thankful it is summer and we can have no real agenda!

This week we celebrated our first 4th of July as a family of 4 with family. We didn't see fireworks this year due to jet lag and yucky weather. Maybe next year we will be up for some fireworks! We took Hannah to PT therapy (which went horribly! Hopefully next week will be better!) and took Mila to the IAC (International Adoption Clinic). We saw friends, and they got a chance to meet and spend some time with the girls. Doug and I celebrated our 7th anniversary on the 6th of July. We purchased a better feeding chair and stroller for Mila. We walked trails and played at the local park. We have had movie night, and had a wonderful week being a family that consists of a Mama, a Papa, a Hannah, and a Mila!

Here are some pictures from the week:
On the trip home- sitting in Munich airport
Loving the swing! She giggled so much!
First pool experience! She was cold within 10 minutes and ready to get out!
Movie Night! They were too excited to hold still for a picture!
The girls in the "truck car". Hannah was so happy to have a rider!
