Ollie at home

We have been home almost 5 days. Oliver is starting to throw off the jetlag and come to terms with central standard time. Parenting a grieving 5 month old is stretching. I've turned into the neruotic mom I've always made fun of. He is usually full of smiles and cuddles but I think he's starting to realize he's not going back. He has bouts of grief that are scary but necessary.

Anywho, I've noticed a few of you have yet to meet the new kid. Sarah, Brandy, SKYLER....I'm talking to you. We love visitors, drop by any time.

Well, Missy was wrong I will NOT be over today. But I will be calling to see when is a good time. I love the Worth the Wait shirt! Hope you guys are throwing off Jet Lag also!

Rachel, you are an awesome mom. It's not neurotic to be sensitive to him. I never thought about him experiencing grief. I feel dumb.

Can't wait to meet him. He's so precious.

What a handsome boy! He looks a little stunned, but I know with you as his mother, Rachel, he will be just fine!

Sorry we haven't been by yet to see him, or that I haven't called. I know am a bad friend. I haven't had a car since last monday. But I try to get by sometime.
He is so cute how are the girls doing? talk to you soon(on the phone)

What a wonderful moment that I finally found Oliver with you there!
Although I couldn't be of any help to you, I had been praying that you would have a safe trip to Korea and bring Oliver back home safely.
I'm still in my office now, but seeing all the pictures and video which you looked very happy meeting with him made me almost cry.
I'm sure you'll be a wonderful mother of 3 children.

Korea is my familiar country because it's my first place to work on my project and I've still been working with a lot of nice Korean people. There is also a pretty Korean girl here working with me now.

I really hope I can meet him and also two girls a.s.a.p!!

Love you all☆
