Breaking Radio Silence

I've been pretty quiet during the month of August. It wasn't on purpose, but I was fairly distracted, and trying to get a bunch of things done around the house. Last week, I reorganized the basement, so everything is in totes or boxes and on shelves. I feel like an "after" picture in an organizing magazine. Anyway, the reason I've been so distracted (and so motivated to get the basement done) is this:

That's Levi Michael. He was born Friday, August 22, and he came home to us on Wednesday, August 27, after all the adoptive placement paperwork was completed. We are head over heels in love with him. Even after last night. (I'm sure the nurses in the nursery didn't mind him being up all night, since they had to be up anyway. It's not going to work long-term at home, though!)

I'm a little foggy, and I can't think of any other news to report, but here are more pictures, since that's probably what you want anyway. Oh, the cuteness!

My mama likes me, I think. (Ignore her puffy eyes. I made everybody stay up pretty late.)

See, I do have eyes.

Ready to go home!

Sleepy boys, home at last.

Bean baby. :)

Oh, yes, he is indeed precious!

I am so sorry I wasn't answering my phone when you called. University professors dont' like phones ringing during their lectures so I had to turn it off and forgot to turn it back on when I went home.

Much love...

As adorable as they are, these pictures do NOT do him justice. (I got to see the real thing!)
