Easter pictures

 Boys with Grandma and Grandpa

 Jordan searching for eggs.  He got a basket full.
Playing in the playhouse on the farm where the Easter egg hunt took place.  A beautiful place.  It was a beautiful day and both boys got lots of easter eggs.  Lots of fun.

Jordan outside playing

Aunt Candace, Uncle Jeremy and cousin Channing visiting

Jordan is doing so well.  He laughs and smiles a lot.  He loves playing with his big brother.  We are so thankful that he is with us now and we love him so much!

We're home!!

Well, I never got to add updates in China because I didn't know I had to have a VPN.  I've never heard of such a thing.  Three years ago when we went to get Josiah, I was able to get on the blog with no problem.  Guess a lot has changed since then!

We are glad to be home!  Jordan is doing well.  Took him several days in China to be comfortable enough to get down and walk and play.  He has the biggest, cutest smile and laugh.  We found his tickle spot on his belly and he loves it.  He is a big eater and will eat anything we put in front of him.  He is so little.  He's 2 years old and is wearing 12-18 month clothes.   

Sean has the next two weeks off which is great.  Jordan has been waking up the last two nights screaming and takes a while to calm.  He's been to two different hotels and now our house in two weeks.  Lots of changes for a little man.

Josiah is doing well.  He is being a great big brother and helping Mommy.  Sean and Josiah have already taught Jordan how to do "knuckles" and elbow bump (something Sean made up).

no news

I was hoping to get our travel approval this week before Chinese New Year.  All next week China is shut down and nothing will get done.  So now we probably won't travel to get our Jordan until late February (I hope).  I know better than to have expectations of when things will get done.  I got my hopes up and now I'm slightly depressed.  Up until now I've been cool and calm.  This wait for our travel approval just seems like nonsense to me and it's driving me crazy!  I pray to God every day that he sends his angels to care for Jordan.  I know HE watches over him.
