Oh how things have changed...

We got to see our babies today!!  Cooper looks just the same, gorgeous and a little reserved.  He warmed up pretty quickly though and did seem to remember us.  Carter has changed a lot.  He's definitely a toddler and not a baby anymore.  He's so steady on his feet and has most assuredly decided what he does and does NOT want.  YIKES!  Here's a blurred face photo of the brothers together for the first time, I just about DIED when I got them all to sit in the same place at the same time!

We got to feed them lunch and they ate more than I do.  I've never seen small humans pack away the chow like they can!  It's no wonder they're both on the hefty side!

We can tell they've been working with the boys.  Now Cooper knows who and what a brother is.  When you ask him "where's your brother?" he points to Carter.  When we are more specific and ask "Where is brother Jackson?" he points to Jack.  I know, it hardly qualifies him for Mensa... but we think it's pretty cool!!  He also points to us respectively when asked "where is Mama/Papa?".  Dare I hope they've been using the little photo album we left on Trip One?

There was a different vibe today.  We were both looking at them in a another light, with more possessiveness... is that even a word?  They're still strangers in a sense, but now they're OUR strangers.  And we can't wait to get to know them better!

We have the ever exciting 8 doctor medical tomorrow and can't wait to get poked and prodded by 8 indifferent strangers.  

I'll let you know how it goes...
