Be prepared to see the cutest pictures ever!!!!!!

Okay so maybe not the cutest ever.....but pretty darn close!



We haven't been able to post anything because we are staying with my friend Kerry's brother who just happens to be a resident doctor at the same hospital that Camden was born at!!!! Yes crazy and just one of the many miracles....but the problem is we can't get wireless there so we are sitting in a hotel parking lot stealing their access to get this post out to y'all. (see we've been here to long...we are starting to talk like these SC people)..



The latest is that we are still waiting....things are moving but it just takes awhile. So thank you for your prayers, it is NOT EASY to be patient, we just want to go home! Thank you so much for all of your comments and e-mails. It means more than you know. Having the best thing in your life happen so far away from family and friends feels so isolating. Reading your comments makes it feel like we actually are sharing it with you even though you aren't here.



Camden is such a sweet baby, he likes to be awake at night but we are okay with it, we have nothing else to do but take care of him so it's all good. He loves his daddy and totally recognizes his voice. They already have a very tight bond. I decided it's okay. Aric has been outnumbered for so long he deserves his own special buddy.



So that's all for now. I will write more when I have more exciting news to tell. Until then...thank you again for all of your love and support...PLEASE keep them coming. Your prayers are what is keeping us going. The peace we feel during this crazy time is a blessing, and that is a direct result of prayer.

Yay for more pictures. I vote for the last one as Most Darling. That face is so hilarious. CANNOT wait to hold him...and I am not a not-my-baby holder, but I really hold that little guy.

Lindsey said...

I am soooooooooo happy for you. I am not sure where your clothes ended up, but I know they are in Spokane somewhere. I will check with my in-laws tomorrow. Hope you are enjoying your time with the little one. So, is it as great as it seems? To have a brand new baby and not have to lose all the weight? And not have to carried it around for 9 months.. Right now, that sounds just about AWESOME!

Randi said...

We are loving the pictures, Tessa is cooing at him already - she is complaining right now because she can't see him anymore since I'm writing...this sweet little guy will never lack for love and attention!

The pictures make me cry. I couldn't be happier for you guys! So deserving, so inspiring in the way you live your lives, and still teaching us through example that it is all about UNCONDITIONAL love! KISS HIM TWICE FOR ME! He's perfect.

Oh my word! he is so stinkin' cute! i love the look on his face in the last picture! i really is a blessing that you have this special time with him before you get back to "real" life! it is good to have this bonding time with just the three of you!

i think that is wonderful that camden loves his daddy so much and recognizes his voice! i'm sure that daddy/son relationship is so rewarding for aric. i wouldn't know first hand, but hope to someday!

The girls were so excited to see the new pictures of their brother. They were all squealing and I started crying :) Loved the pictures and cannot wait to squeeze him.

Let me tell you through experience after 3 girls and a boy. It is just as they say daddy's girls and mommy's boys. He will have you "wrapped around his little finger" in no time:)(I am sure he already does!)

Our prayers are with you!

Jean McKendrick said...

So I am thinking this baby is never going to be put down between his mom and dad, sisters and extended family?! :) He's a doll.

Ilene said...

He is absolutely gorgeous. Laura and he would make such pretty babies together... but maybe I'm jumping the gun.

Enjoy the time cuddling with him before you have to go back to real life! I'm so stinking happy for you guys!

I have been thinking about you guys all the time, I keep thinking- you have a baby for Christmas! :) Just like your song says, you truly are blessed. I can't wait to see him!!

Bridget said...

He is adorable and I am so happy for you! Enjoy your many hours of staring into his innocent little face and counting your blessings.

Jessica-
I just heard the incredible news- you have a son!!
I am soo excited for you, and I bet the girls can't wait to see and hold their brother.
He is beautiful and I love his name.
What an amazing Christmas gift!
Give him kisses for me.
You and your new family of 5 will be in our prayers.

Meghann said...

I am so happy you posted more pictures! He is precious, adorable, beautiful, cute- words can't describe him- seriously!!!

Eden had a playdate with us this morning. She is so, so, so sweet. She was telling me all about your "strike" system at your house. (3 strikes, no $ earned) It was hilarious. She did say she's excited to be home again. :) But she was so happy and excited! Lucy was too, she just about hyperventilated with excitement at having Eden over. (AND, Jack has been sitting by Eden on the bus.) :) We miss you Jess. Can't wait to get my hands (clean hands) on that baby!!!

Elena said...

Hi Jess & Aric. I wasn't able to get my comment yesterday, so hopefully it will work this time. Oh yeah he's a cutie. All the girls at work think he's great & admire you for your persistance & desire to adopt. Working where I do, we're all baby lovers here. Be sure to give him a kiss & hug from both of his abuelitas & papa Joe. I spoke with the girls last night and they seem fine. Edie is pretty exited to finally be a big sister.
