Today marks 4 weeks of having Inna HOME!!!

Over the past four weeks we have seen Inna grow so much emotionally, physically, and socially.  We are excited to finally have her home in our arms and a part of our family.  God has blessed us richly in so many ways and we can't get over just how much He has perfectly arranged for our family to be together!

Here are a few days of pictures smushed together into one long blog:)  There are a few miscellaneous pictures in here and some of our trip to Deanna Rose Farm, Todd's work baby shower, and a gathering we had with Todd's friends from childhood.  More pictures coming soon!!

Inna seeing if Obi will talk on the phone...he is such a gentle giant!!

Just taking a closer look:) 
Last week we went to Deanna Rose Farm with some friends.  Inna sportin' her shades:)
Look Mom, a cow!!!
Baby calfs nearby as we waited to see the cow milked.

Inna loved the tractor but her little legs couldn't reach the pedals so Momma pushed her around the track. 
Down the long slide...so fun!

Jean and the gang planned a "Welcome Home" party for Inna at Todd's work.  We had about 30 guests and Inna really got out of her shell after a few minutes!

The spread:)  This was Inna's first piece of cake...in America anyway!  You guessed it...she loved it!!

Daddy and Inna opening up some gifts!

Inna loved her bubbles while opening up some more gifts.  We had a wonderful time and were blessed with so many beautiful gifts!
At Zona Rosa outside the Smoke Stack after a yummy dinner with "the gang".  Todd has known some of these guys since he was 5 years old...that's a LONG time:)

Such cute smiles!

More cute smiles!  Little Parker was adopted from the U.S. in December.

  2. So as I was reading your blog Arianna came over, sat down, tilted her head to the side, smiled big and said in a little sing-song voice, "In-na! In-na! Hi In-na!" Maybe if you all are interested we should have a play date sometime when you are free.

  3. I have been meaning to text you all day! I wanted to see how you all are doing. And, isn't that the dress Jess and I got Inna in a the last pictures. :)

  4. She is so cute! I just love seeing her beautiful smile.
