And Breathe...

I've said it before....but this whole past year while waiting for the boys, it just felt like I couldn't breathe, like I was just holding my breath waiting for them to be here. So finally, now I can breathe again!!! Surreal - that's how best to describe our life right now. That these two precious angels are here at home, in our arms, just a few feet away at any given time just seems 100% completely surreal to us. It just hasn't sunk in yet.

Every day, every minute with them just seems like such an incredible blessing, the best gift God could have ever given to us, to think of all we went through, wondering if this day would ever come and all we have to do is open our eyes and see them, or listen to their (quite constant thank God) pitter-patter of little feet around the house or their (again, constant) peels of laughter - and just keep telling ourselves over and over again, they're HERE!!!!

We'll never be able to thank all of you for your faithful prayers and support. And so many of you I've never even met - but I know you're out there. We felt your presence and your support through all of the battles. THANK YOU all - God is Good, All the Time...All the Time, God is Good! And He has Blessed us, indeed!

Okay, so for details.... Logan is ALL better! Yippeee! He is quickly gaining the weight he lost during his sickness. We weighed them at the airport (on the baggage scale, he heh he) and Austin weighed 21.5lbs and Logan 19lbs...;-( But, now Logan's cheeks are puffy again and it's getting harder for Mommy and Daddy to tell them apart!

Austin and Logan LOVE their big brothers, Mason and Evan. And Mason and Evan have jumped right into caring for them. It's amazing to watch them all play together. Austin and Logan also adore their grandparents and spent their first day over at their house today (meeting their four-legged brothers, too!) and had a blast! I have SO much more to write, but it's getting late and I know what you really ALL want is PICTURES....so here's a few...
