Boss

As is typical, Mae was holding Enoch in the sitting room, and talking to the boys while I did some picking up.  I saw Oscar pick up Fletcher and haul him in there too - also not wholly atypical.  Soon I hear him hollering at me 'MAMA! We ready! MAMA WE READY!' - I go running in to see what's going on and here's what I find...

They orchestrated a picture for me.  Hilarious!! They then insisted that Josh and I take turns getting in it too, and we were happy to oblige.

Travel

IMG_9210.jpg
A whirlwind to get our boy.  Waiting on our layover - marveling at how easy traveling without children is.

On the plane!  Story: Enoch is our first baby who we had to name before we met.  I usually take a day or two (at least) to choose a name, but when our contact called and said that if we had a name chosen for paperwork there was a chance we could have custody on that Sunday instead of Monday, you better believe I bit the bullet and we chose right then!

Landed - eating at an Outback after a quick stop at a baby store.  This was hour 12 of travel for the day, and we were hangry - so much that when the waiter came to greet us we basically held him there until we decided what to eat and then decided we shouldn't talk at all (to save fighting) until food came.  It was a good decision.

Face-timing the kiddos while we drove from Orlando to where the agency was.  Seeing their smiling faces helped ease the mom guilt - a little.

We didnt' end up getting to take custody on Sunday - but spent the day at the beach together and tried to view it as the date day we seldom get.

Our first meeting!  We couldn't believe how tiny he was.

Back at the hotel - in clothes that fit :)

Introducing him to the big kids!! You can tell how close they were to the camera - two foreheads.

2 week doctor visit!  We were thrilled to be able to get in and see our old NP from when we lived in Florida.  We love Nurise!!  She's probably close to what we miss most about living there ;)

Josh was only in FL briefly so he could get back to our gang - and only got about a day with Enoch.  He was soaking it up though, working from the hotel and snuggling the baby.

Museum

Reeeeeally close to our house, there is a museum that has an awesome children's section.  We went one morning when my mom was in town, but as is common - it was crowded so my kiddos were glued to my side and having NO fun.  Thanks to a tip from a mom who had been there before, though, we went and found a little childrens area in a different section.  What a hit!! It was an old country house and chicken coop set up, and they played and played.  I watched and watched - and my dear mama chased and chased Fletcher through the museum while the others played.
