i can't believe we leave tomorrow!! i have surprisingly not stressed out for this trip like i did for the last one. maybe because i was so focused on jason getting leave approved. btw, we have a signed leave form!! there are lots of last minute things to do today. mostly pack. i know, we leave tomorrow. but i do better at packing last minute. i already have some things laid out. jeans are in the washer. and i never fully unpacked from the last trip. basically, anything besides clothing stayed in the suitcase. i need to check the amounts of shampoo and whatnot, but for the most part, that little stuff is taken care of. everything i need for levi is out, folded, and ready to go into the suitcase. i have struggled with how much to take for him. i tend to overpack, but this time, i think its a good thing to overdo it a little.

even though we are leaving tomorrow, i still don't know if it has totally sunk in yet. i mean, in 3 days, levi biniam will be with us...forever! everything about our life is going to change. obviously for the better! i am so stinkin' excited to see his precious little face again. i look at the pictures from our last trip everyday. i watch the videos everyday. but, i can't wait until he's IN my arms. i often think about what that moment will be like. however it ends up going, i know it will be AMAZING.

so, Levi Biniam, momma and daddy are coming for you!! we love you and cannot wait to see you and love on you. and bring you home. forever!! your little world is about to be rocked. and so is our's. we can't wait!! 


  1. Congratulations in advance! I am so excited for you! :)

  2. I am so excited and happy for you and Jason! Congrats! God has worked in amazing ways for you and your family! I can't wait to hear that you are back here with your son!
