Welcome home, Wes!!!

April 8, 2009

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!  Our family is complete!!!  We picked Weston up at 3:30 this afternoon after 51 days in the Swedish NICU – and he’s now home with his brother(s)!!!!  We are obviously VERY excited (like you couldn’t tell with all of the exclamation marks), and soooo ready to start this new chapter of our life together.  Because we will likely be busy the next few days getting into a routine with the boys, I probably won’t be posting much (if any).  So sit back, relax, and enjoy some pictures we took today of Wes’s homecoming…

    “The boys in their Boppys”— It looks like Max is pointing at Wes and saying, “He did it, he did it!” Better get used to that!

    We’re so glad that things are “as they should be” with everyone home. We hope you have as much fun with your “kidlies” as we did with ours.

    Love, Dad
