Since arriving home from China, the last 5 days have been a blur... We have loved being home and Eva has been a gem. After getting little or no sleep, in addition to the extensive travel, etc, however, David and I are both on RX/antibiotics and still not feeling up to our best.
In spite of illness, we are loving little Miss Eva Monet. She keeps us smiling and continues to bring joy to our world. We are quite smitten with her. I still look at her and ask myself if this is Really Real... Is this precious child really my daughter? Am I really a mom? It feels so very natural to be her mom. I do not feel nervous or uptight mothering her which is wonderful. It feels really comfortable to hold her, feed her, talk with her, tease her, love on her, kiss on her, tickle her... All of it. I love that. It's very special to see how the 3 of us seem to fit so well in this short period of time. How special it is to watch my husband play and love on our daughter. David and I both feel so blessed to have Eva in our lives and thank the Lord for what we believe to be His plan for all of us.
We were surprised at the airport with a welcome by some friends and my sister, Auntie Shelly, who is more than excited. Very, very thoughtful... Eva was happy to meet the crew even after 24+ Hrs of travel! (sigh) Thank you Melissa, Carrie, Hilary, Les & Shelly!! We enjoyed watching you all with Eva. Your smiles made our homecoming extra special.
