what a difference nine months makes! malakai & finley

wow, wow, wow... nine months can sure change your life!

nine months ago today, this little sweet pea (Malakai Aweke) landed on US soil with us and FINALLY made it HOME!

car ride home from the airport

hotel in Ethiopia

Now for photos from today.... WOW! We were both totally getting sentimental thinking about this today... 
haircut day! he was excited! 

he picked out this outfit after his nap today... got this little jersey while we were in Ethiopia and it's about 5 sizes too big, but all they had... so we thought we'd save it for later... and I held in the tears when he came down from his nap and Dan had this on him... my baby has grown SO much in 9 short months! 

ALSO in nine short months... been meaning to introduce her to you all week! 

Introducing Finley Eden Ucherek, born 3/13/12, 6 lbs 11 oz, 19 in

  6. HORRAY! I figured you were busy having her :) did you peek and know she was a girl, or were you surprised. Just wondering if you told me, as everytime I prayed "HER" came out of my spirit. So thrilled for you and keeping you all covered with yet another big transition. Praise the Lord! love, darlene grieco ;)
