One Year Ago Today....




..... I held Alex for the first time. I can't believe that it's been a year. How is that possible?
I was supposed to get Alex on my birthday last year, but we had major flight problems, and instead of arriving in Guatemala at around noon on the 25th, we arrived at 10:30 pm. Our agency normally doesn't bring babies on the weekend, (I really don't blame them - they have to have their own life at some point in time) but they did bring Alex to us on Saturday. We were only there for a couple of days, but I'm still so glad that we visited. It was SOOO worth it.
