Ben is home...

And lots of work! I would say he's as much work as a newborn baby, without a diaper on!

But boy, he's a little sweet cuddlier. Our first night home was awful, he cried for hours and hates his crate. We got about 4 hours of sleep.

Last night was much better. He was up to potty twice, a little crying and back to sleep in his crate!

He's slowing adjusting to being away from him Mom and 9 siblings.

He is a nipper so Jadyn tries to stay away from him. She's up on the couch out if his reach alot!

Jadyn and I are going camping this weekend with a group called "Families with Children from China" (FCC)

We are super excited as we have waited months for this weekend. We do all activities we are able to, as I want to keep her in contact with her heritage.

We are also getting to finally meet some long time Internet friends, Angie and Raimey.
Raimey shares the same heart condition as Jadyn. She has had 1 of  2 surgeries so far.

Us Mom's, we are looking forward to sharing stories of our girls.

We are also cabin-mates this weekend!

Shoo Bears, here we come.

Her Car

Jadyn is pretty much obsessed with this car!

She can spot them blocks away. We play slug bug every time we are in the car and she usually wins!

A photo with her standing by the car is a must, if possible.

Someday I may be brave enough to ask a stranger if she can try out the drivers seat!

Yes, she's only 5 and has picked out her future car!
