What a day!! We went shopping this morning...fun! It really kept our minds off of the fact that we were GOING TO MEET OUR SON TODAY! It helped even more when we found out that the kids were out of the TH getting their medicals done...
The whole day was a surreal experience and one I'll never forget. We got great video and pictures (which I'll try to upload with this). Silas is a perfect fit. He is so laid back and just a happy boy. Do not take that pacifier away, however. He's a pacifier boy for sure.
Marshall spotted him through the window and then my hands really started shaking. I couldn't even wait for his nanny to bring him to us....I went to her. I couldn't wait to hug her too...she's been a mother to our son for these months. He is loved.
He giggled and cooed and then fell asleep in my arms. Pure heaven. Pure, pure heaven.
We spent a few hours at the TH. I know all of you are waiting for pictures of your gorgeous children...they are gorgeous! Apryl and I are going to work hard tomorrow get pictures of all of the kids and video too. :) If you have not given us permission by email to photograph your kiddos, please do so and copy both of us. We want to make sure we follow the rules and get pictures to you. Did I tell you that your kids are gorgeous? Every one of them is just precious....tomorrow we'll be loving on them even more. And the care packages will be given tomorrow too...it was crazy today and I didn't want it to get lost in the busyness.
We reluctantly left the TH (emotionally drained and exhausted, but would have slept on the floor if they would let us ;). We headed out to a traditional ET restaurant for dinner and music and dancing. Remind me to tell you about the dancing...there was some audience participation. :)
I need to get out of the Harbaugh's room and get stuff ready for tomorrow. We are exhausted and elated and so ready to have Silas full time. He looks like us.
All of these children are handpicked by God for our families...it's amazing to see it up close and personal.
Love to you all!
jill, marshall & silas mezmur
