I can't believe that we got to bring Mia home one month ago!  The first night was a little crazy, but we LOVE having her in our family.  This month has flown by, but don't worry...Caleb and I have taken LOTS of pictures and video in hopes to always remember this sweet time.  Our friend, Rhonda, took pictures of Mia this week and asked us what we want to remember about this age.  

Some of our answers:
The way she holds her thumbs, her sweet noises, her CRAZY hair, her tiny features (Caleb still can't get over how small she is), all of her faces, her frog like sleeping position, and TONS more!

God has blessed us so much that it is sometimes easy to focus on the "gift" and forget to acknowledge the "giver".  I was challenged and encouraged last week by one of our friends who said "God lives inside of you.  It is hard not to spend time with the One who is always with you."  Since then I have really cherished all of the late night feedings and quiet car rides.  Finding the "time" to spend with the Lord isn't as hard now as I learn to stop in the midst of the craziness and acknowledge Him, talk to Him, and begin to rest in His presence.
