Funny story about our ‘waiting walk’.  We arrived before the babies so our group headed across the street to walk off our nerves.  The picture is of the C~ family & P~ & I’m standing next to Alison.  You can see a cow in the background.  The cow felt it was as important of a day as we did so she left us a present on the sidewalk which J~ stepped in.  You’d think a guy raised in Dairy Country MN would know better…

They're Here!!!!

They're Here!!!!

The babies arrived laying across the back seat & the nanny attempted to stack a couple of the babies & take them into the building.  We didn’t get a picture of that 😉

There she is!!

There she is!!

It's official, she's ours!

It's official, she's ours!

What a whirlwind day that was.  We had been expecting our G&R for days & then we finally get the call.  The trip out seemed to fly & take forever, all at the same time.  The arrival of the babies, the discovery of how bad T~’s cradle cap was, the ceremony, the trip back – it was such an exhilarating day.  The anticipation, the excitement, the joy of finally having our daughter in our arms.  Wow.

What an amazing journey.
