Wow, it is incredible how fast time goes these days. I feel like Elias was born yesterday, but it has already been 5 weeks. Sorry for the silence and delay in updating everyone on our lives. If you really think about it, I just gave birth in a foreign country and in a city that is new to me. We are still in survival mode. Things have been just a little busy. ;) We have been trying to function and figure out life as best as we can with lack of sleep and being away from our home. Our days have been random, full, fun, overwhelming, exhausting, and such a blessing all at the same time. Although, I have had my fair share of chocolate and pumpkin spice lattes since having a baby. I very well DO NOT have it all figured out or have everything together. We are working on figuring out a routine that works well for our family and that can travel with us. So thankful for maternity leave to give us time to work on this, and well, God's Grace! And now, it's time for some pictures.

Big Sister and Baby Brother
Elias at ONE MONTH (although, he looks like a 3 mo. old)
Although things are busy, we are loving every bit of it. These kids are a joy and are for sure keeping us on our knees. This is sanctification in the flesh! We of course have our good days and our bad days, things are tough, but we wouldn't trade it for anything. Our loving Father knows exactly what we need. May we draw nearer to Him.
We only have a few days left in our country's capitol before moving again to another city, but still not our home. Continue to remember us as we travel and stay in transition for a while. I have plans to get in at least one more pumpkin spice latte before we leave. :) Also, in an effort to figure out life with two, to make an easier transition, and for language and culture adaption, I am signing off Facebook for a while (Sadly, I spend way too much idle time lurking on there). Please continue to check our blog, subscribe to it, email and or Skype me!
We love you and miss you and would love to hear from you. Leave a comment.
McCartney party of 4 ;)
