Well, we're here now.
Here being "home," our new home. A state away.
I think maybe it's partially my post-delivery hormones, but my emotions are rolling. I tear up very easily and have to focus on the fact that we are together as a family and that is what "home" is.
I got to spend a fun weekend with 40 of my closest friends at a wonderful last hurrah- the Ladie's Retreat with our church. I am SO thankful I got to go and that
Lanman was a cooperative one-month-old.

Speaking of the little man- (I'll share a photo soon) He smiled at me last night! Three or four times he raised his eyebrows really high, scrunched up his eyes and did an open mouth grin- I hope he has a more natural smile, too, cause this one was a little like a dog or horse's smile on a cheesy greeting card. He was cooing and looking right at me when he did it each time- so I'm pretty sure it was purposeful.

Today we are settling things. Bella and I did a bit of school and are now trying to find places for lots and lots of things... It may be a long-term goal. :)
We are also catching up on a couple weeks' worth of laundry and hoping to venture out for a walk. It's a nice day and Lanman has new wheels thanks to Grandma and Papa K- I will share a photo after the assembly process. :)

For any friends checking in- I miss you all so much. I feel like I've been in a fog since I left. Please keep in touch! :) Love you!!!

I can remember baby Mudge's first smile to Mama. It was in the middle of the night, and we were laying on the floor, basking in the glow of the Christmas tree lights. I hope I never forget that little grin! We miss you guys! Now you've made me tear up! : )
