Hello ! Wow....amazing how a small eight month old can consume all of your time ! It is so worth it though !!! Ella is a dream come true. She honestly is. She is smiling and babbling all the time now and really seems comfortable with her new family. Praise the Lord ! She loves daddy and her brothers and she's crazy about our cat, Ivy ! She loves playing with her toys in her room and looking at books. She's eating mashed potatoes and her favorite food right now is good ole biscuits and gravy ! A true southern gal ! Enjoy the photos and thanks for all the well wishes for Ella !

Thank the Lord we are home !!! Considering all the changes Ella has endured the last 7 days, she's doing great !! She is still very clingy with me, but will sit in her highchair or on the floor and play now with Carter and Cole. She just will not let anyone but me hold her....which makes Carter and Cole so frustrated ! We introduced Ella to Elvis our Cotswold sheep yesterday and she didn't know what to think ! It was so cute ! Please pray that Ella continues to transition to her new family. She's been through so much in the last week. Until next time !

Finally ! I have found a computer that will allow me to access the internet. We have had a hard time getting online while here in Guatemala this time for some reason. I'll have to keep this short and sweet and will definitely fill everyone in on all the details of our trip in the next couple days. Ella is doing SO much better ! She slept from 9:30 until 7:00 this morning and is in a wonderful mood today. We have to take off now to the airport ...Enjoy the photos of our angel !

We had our last family vacation as a family of 4 and are now packing (as I type this) to travel to Guatemala to get our little girl ! We headed to South Carolina last week and had fun camping during the fourth of July holiday. The boys had so much fun and were a little disappointed to have to leave but they're anxious now to have 'Sis' home. Wendel and I will be leaving Tuesday and returning Friday evening with Ella Rose Burke. We will attempt to update the blog as well as our adoption website so stay tuned !
