Today marks four weeks since we came home from China with Vivi in our arms.
And it’s been a pretty crazy four weeks.
Life is definitely different with the addition of this little one.
We can’t fit all the littles into the tub anymore.
We can’t fit into our car anymore.
We can’t all fit around our kitchen table anymore.
And Chris and I can barely fit into our bed anymore.
She sleeps right smack in the middle of our king-size bed.
But even though we’re squished in the tub, driving two cars, with extra mismatched chairs at the table and falling off the sides of our big ol’ bed…
In our family, Vivi somehow just fits. Just right.
She is beyond adorable. There are no words. What a wonderful blessing she is.
Look at that little lamby. Oh Stefanie. What a wonderful family. And she does fit just right!!

I wish I had a coupon for a 15 passenger van that I could mail you. *grin*

I am CERTAIN that the makers of the Dodge Sprinter would see YOUR cause MORE worthy than even the precious Jon & Kate PLUS Eight's!! I say you need to write a letter – or better yet- VISIT them in person with the clan!!!
I love how God delights in showing us exactly what "right" is & how it may very well look different than the world thinks it should – and sometimes, even what WE think it should…….
holy cow! it's been 4 weeks?! can't believe it. so glad she's "fitting in!"
That was the sweetest post ever. I LOVE it!

Such a sweet girl! So, here's a logistical question for you. How do you go somewhere when you're on your own with the kids? I'm trying to figure out how we can keep adopting now that our minivan is full!
WONDERFUL photos Stefanie…I am so glad you posted this…we have been "thinking" and "thinking" about IF we should add just ONE more to our family. Or are we just nuts? I have to laugh as I have thought of the fact that we have NO VEHICLE to transport all of us but you just PUT ME IN MY PLACE…as we do have TWO vehicles and that would suffice!
So happy for your family and Vivi!

You've managed to speak straight to my heart about just how perfect a "different" life can be once you get your new little one home! I've been wondering how the adjustments will work as our humble abode becomes home to a larger family, and you've done a great job of reassuring me! Thanks!!! 🙂
Wow I can't believe it's been a month already! What a happy little munchkin she is, so cute!
What a great post!! She is just so beautiful & adorable!! And yes, she sure does fit right in with your beautiful family!!
precious post of your perfect fit!
love & blessings from hong kong,
sweet momma luv u says
So stink'n cute!!! I just love her smile. Oh crosswise in the bed that is tough!! IT is so worth it though. 2 cars everywhere wow!
We leave in 7 days for Changsha!
Wow…nearly a whole month already! Yep…she is the PERFECT fit…two cars, mismatched dining chairs, multi-baths, side-ways sleep'in P.E.R.F.E.C.T.!!! 🙂
Love and Hugs,
awww…that is so sweet! 🙂 I totally relate to driving two cars everywhere and not fitting at the table. I'm just not nice enough to let kids into my bed 'cause I get grumpy from lack of sleep. 🙂
I would guess definitely, 'just right' in His eyes;-).
She's a cutie!

What a sweet post! She is just adorable! You are sooo blessed!
She is absolutely adorable and her smile looks like it is FULL of contentment! I am praising God for her and how she is adjusting so well. May God be glorified for ALL He has done!!
Sweet! I can't believe how much you have packed into the last 4 weeks. I'm tired just thinking of it all! Happy Weekend!!!
So sweet, Stefanie. She looks like such a bundle of joy!

Now you have me wondering when you said I look familiar.
My children were not 4-Her's, but my oldest was in the band.
We're in southeast GA, too, Blackshear…where are you?
