6 months in photos

Yesterday marked our 6 month anniversary with Davis!! Can you believe it? I can't!

6 months ago yesterday, we picked up our little boy halfway across the world. I am so thankful for our little man who 6 months ago hated me! Now, that same little boy would like to be held by me at all times. He loves to be cuddled, snuggled, hold hands, everything. Such a lovebug! He loves to play that game, "Who do you love most?" and teasing us by shouting eaither Ma or Daddy just to get tickled. We are so blessed with this boy. He has the sweetest heart for his sister and brother and fits so perfectly into our family. He plays ball with Brayden and chases Gracie around like nothing else. He has a smile to light up a room and loves to play and tease. We can't imagine our lives without him. Thank you, Jesus! Here are our last 6 months in photos.

Oohhhh he is soooo precious, handsome and adorable! I can't believe its been 6 months!!! I love the pic from today with Davis' hand on your leg...such a 'possessive' gesture signifying your his mama (if that makes sense)!

yay! I love all these pictures! Congrats on your "anniversary"!!! God is so good. Oh, and don't worry if the potty training fails. I'm a total slacker on that front :).
