One Month Home and Halloween

Emma Day was one month ago today!


In some ways this has been the longest month, but a lot of the time it seems that Emma has always been a part of our family. She really tries her hardest to mesh with whatever we might be doing, and apart from the sleeping, she is the easiest of all three of our children! Emma is such a loving child. She seeks out hugs and kisses, and we do feel that these are genuine and not like the transparent smiles she once gave us. Emma is such a sweetheart, and she is a beautiful little girl. We have been so blessed to have been chosen as her forever family!
In the first three weeks that Emma has been home, she was able to celebrate her first Halloween! As mentioned before, we were in Wilmington with friends. It was such a nice night there - temperatures in the 70s with no clouds in the skies...perfect for trick-or-treating. It was dark by the time we got everyone in costume and somewhat chaotic. I did not get one good photo of all three kids in costume. On top of that, my NEW camera stopped working Thursday night while taking the jack-o-lantern photos. Apparently it is part of a Nikon lot that needs to have a part replaced...that means I have to mail the camera in to have it fixed! At least it happened in time for JC to bring our old camera to the beach with him. The problem with that camera though is that the flash doesn't work half the time. It was VERY difficult to get good Halloween photos in the dark! Emma especially was hard because she would not keep her witch's hat on! But I did the best I could and just kept snapping photos.

The last picture is my favorite...she is really checking out her brother to make sure it is really him! so funny. Those costumes are wonderful. Great pics...even with the old camera. At least you captured the moments which is what it is all about.
So glad things are going well.
Wished I had more bedtime help. I know we have to give our little one a bottle to hold on to still, even if it just has water in it. It really comforts her.
