Spencer's home!!

We waited, and waited, and waited, and waited, and the end finally came. Our darling Spencer came back to us. But not until after a little bit more waiting, at the airport.

I know she is my own girl, but I cannot get enough of this face. So serious. So precious.

Charlie has been talking about Spencer coming home for weeks. He keeps saying "is he ours Mom? Is he going to come sleep in my room and be my little brother?" He was so excited to see his "little brother."

Felicity, as you can see from the picture above, and as you know, if you know her at all, was reluctant. She doesn't like strangers, or big crowds, or volume, or emotion, all of which was abundant at the airport. But it took her about four minutes after leaving the airport and getting in the shuttle back to the parking garage to decide she had a new best friend.

Uncle. He was gone almost exactly Felicity's whole life (she was born 6 weeks after he left), so that gives you an idea of how long it was. Penny was only about 6 months when he left.

We're so happy to have our Spencer home. We are so proud of what he has done, and of what he will continue to do. And we love that his English sort of sucks.
