Above is our first family portrait. We are so excited to welcome Eve into our family. She brings us so much joy (and a lot less sleep, that is worth missing :).

As we leave with her together for China tomorrow, we wanted to post this announcement, especially because we don't know if blogspot is still blocked there or not. Hopefully we can still let you know all about our adventures and also be able to stay tuned to the news in all of your lives.

We love you all!

Sam, Amy, and Eve

I still can't believe we have kids!! I am so happy for you Amy!!! I can't think of anything better than being a mom. You are going to be such an amazing mommy. I am sad I don't get to see you. Clay and I LOVE the name Genevieve, that is what we were going to name Bodie if he was a girl. . . it's Clay's missons mom's name.

Meg said...

What an adorable baby girl! She is just precious. I can't believe how much she looks like you Amy. I hope all goes well with the trip back to China. Keep us posted, if you can, on all your happenings.

Hope all is going well for ya'll. I was wondering if I could copy/paste your drivers test on my blog (your comments and all--or not your comments if you don't want). It's just too hilarious not to share with others! Let me know when you get a chance: millioncowmama@gmail.com
