Blessed. So Blessed.

The King's Aunt and Uncle picked us up at the airport and took us to their home to regroup before we got on the road for the 3-3 1/2 hour drive home. Both girls were all smiles for a little time on the floor and not being held. Princess T is beginning to crawl and has four teeth! Princess B is still toothless and not crawling...but it's coming soon, I'm sure.
If I look's because I was.

Our oldest kids and the King's parents were waiting patiently for us at home with a home made welcome banner and lots of smiles.
 One little one was sacked out by the time we got home. She didn't sleep on the plane much at all.
 The one who slept on the plane...was all smiles and charm. Talking and grinning at anyone who looked her way.

 The oldest Princess has been enjoying getting to know her little sisters...
 ...holding them...touching them...loving them in person. Finally.
After a first bath and new clothes, mom and the newest members of the household less than 18 hours after arriving home. Good times. Blessings beyond compare.

As I was walking the floor with the one who did not sleep the first night home...I thanked God that this was happening in my home, in my state, in my time reality. Not dreams, not wishing and hoping. But real skin on real babies in my arms.

So blessed.

This is my favorite part of my insomnia packed life. Thank you Jesus for your faithfulness in this whole journey!
