Our Time At The Farm

We stayed at The Farm for 6 days after Wren was born. Stacie came and checked on us everyday. We just took our time. We say it's like our Disney World or our own Little Eden.

Ryan's parents drove down from Virginia, and my parents helped us out a ton! My parents cooked us meals every night. How lucky are we?!

We spent our time getting River acquainted with a new family member. Honestly, he didn't like it at first. And that was hard for Ryan and me. He's adjusting now, but those first few days were rough. His break through came when he saw Wren laying in the sun without any blankets wrapped around him and with his hat off. River had an epiphany, and said "baby feet?" Once he realized that Wren was just like him, only smaller, he has been into Wren ever since.

River also had lots of playmates between Daddy, Neem, Pappy, Grandma, and Grandpap. He played outside and went on walks and adventures to see the horses and chickens and play at the playground.

Jim came down to meet his new godson, and Jamina came for a visit too. My friend, Jen, who lives near the Farm stopped by for a visit as well.

Here are some photos from our first few days as a new family.

Precious family. So glad things are going well and that little Wren arrived safe and sound. Loved the Chimney Sweep costume - you guys did a great job in putting that together, and as always, love 'Mina's fro! :)

Thanks, Heather! You won River over in the parking lot when we met up when you said, "Jane & Michael...Banks." River is so cute because he calls them Jane & Michael Fanks. Nonetheless, he built a kinship with you that day.
