Please excuse the new mommy brain!

Please excuse the new mommy brain!

January 29, 2007

I didn't even think about the after pictures until AFTER I sent out the post!! As I said in the first post we are going on Saturday to Picture People to have her pictures done. We were playing a little dress up on Sunday to figure out what she will be wearing. It just so happens that the pictures from this are BEAUTIFUL!! They also show off her new and improved bangs! These pictures will show exactly WHY Chris and I call her Angel Face!

Can you spell:
B E A U T I F U L !!!!
What a cutie pie. All the ladies at work just want to eat her up! Just Love her Love her Love her!

Oh its beautiful I love the black and white one! Chris could print those off and not need a photographer! What a beauty!
Posted by: PopPop on January 29, 2007 at 03:26 P.M.
I agree with the PopPop.....the black and white is breathtaking! It brought tears to me eyes. Angel, indeed!!

Lily's first haircut

Lily's first haircut
Don't worry we didn't touch the curls!! :-)

January 27, 2007

We went over to Cartoon Cuts this morning! She was looking a little too much like Mr. Donald Trump!! She had a wicked comb over thing happening! We just had her bangs done and it went better then we thought it would!! Thank goodness Miss. Bonita was great and knew how to do her job quickly! We are going to give the rest of her hair a chance to grow in. They gave us a certificate and locks of her hair! She looks so cute with her little bangs now! We then went over to Picture People and scheduled her first photo shoot for next Saturday! Every time we go out she better about being in the car and better yet car seat. In Guatemala I don't think she had ever been in a car seat and being in a car was also something rare. I think that she is getting the idea that we go out for a little bit and then we come back to the same place and although people around her may change Momma and Daaady stay with her. She is also getting into her schedule. Chris and I had discussed and decided that because Chris goes to work I would get up at night with her throughout the week Sunday-Thursday. Chris gets Friday and Saturday. So this week she got up mostly between 3-5 am and I would just rub her back or if she was wet change her. Mostly no big deal... we had one rough night. Before we went to sleep last night I gave him all of the tips that I had learned through the week. He was ready. So last night (heehee poor Daddy) she was up at 1215am-115 straight! He did great though!! I was awake the whole time and just listened as he sung and patted her. He ended up having the change her and she wetted through her undershirt. He got back in the bed like a trooper and I could feel how proud he was of himself because he had done it all by himself! Tonight we are going to bed even earlier just in case the same repeats itself!

A very sleepy Momma and Daady!!

Ohhhhh how sweet is she! But I want to see an after picture of our girl!!! Love Mom
Posted by: MomMom on January 27, 2007 at 07:22 P.M.
I'm with MomMom.........where are the "after" shots??
Posted by: Aunt Tracy on January 28, 2007 at 12:22 P.M.
Ok, this is vote # 3 for the after shots. I'm going thru withdrawal. :-)
Oh btw, finished her itty bitty socks. Can't wait to give them to her.

Our first week home

January 24, 2007

Everything is going great! Right now she is asleep for her afternoon nap. This week has been a whirlwind! We had a great time visiting with family and friends over the weekend. We are totally overwhelmed by the love that we feel from everyone! We are so glad to be home with our baby! I tell Chris all the time I can't believe that she is finally here in one minute and then the very next I can't remember her not being here with us! She is adjusting wonderfully. Dusty has taken to her well and visa versa. I think it is the size (they weigh about the same!!) Gus we have nicknamed Nana from Peter Pan b/c everywhere Lily is there is Gus like a nervous Nelly. Willie well... he is mad. We are doing better he actually went into her room yesterday and again this morning. He gives us with this 'you are kidding...right' look. Yesterday they had a moment and that is a good start. Chris went back to work on Monday and everyday when he comes through the door and smiles and squeals! She is now knowingly calling him Daddy! It is more like a Daaady ! :-) She is eating and sleeping well. We are settling into a routine slowly but surely. She is going to the doctors next week and I will post about that adventure. Until then enjoy the pictures of our first week home!

I love seeing the new pictures. She looks like such a delight! She has such beautiful big brown eyes too. I know you are enjoying it!
Posted by: Reba on January 24, 2007 at 07:43 P.M.
I can't wait to come and play again!! I love you all!!!! Happy family weekend!!

Posted by: Aunt Lizzie on January 24, 2007 at 08:53 P.M.
I've become a "junky" for this web page! I can't imagime life without it now. After spending a few hours with the three of you, it is totally obvious that Lily was meant to be your daughter!! Oh,and did I tell you...........I WANT HER!!!
Posted by: Aunt Tracy on January 25, 2007 at 04:51 A.M.
I love my little family. What a wonderful time we had I can't wait to do it again. Love you all
Posted by: MomMom on January 27, 2007 at 01:13 P.M.
She is truly a beautiful baby. You and she are blessed. Enjoy her while she's this age. Its a lot of work but totally worth it!!

January 16, 2007

We are all packed up and ready to go. Everything went great. Our plane leaves tomorrow morning @ 825am!! We have waited a LONG TIME to post this....

Welcome Home Lily Party!!

Where- BWI AA Terminal/security area

When- Approx 705 pm 1/17/07



Ok here is the deal. Megan and I have had the time of our lives, However lily has had her entire world changed in the course of a week. For this reason please understand that she will need to adjust to her new forever home. Everyone is welcomed to the airport, but Lily will not be taking visitors until the weekend. This will give us a chance to introduce to her new life at home and give us a minute to breathe!

As you may or may not be aware Lily had a rough beginning with us. she is doing much better, but this bond is still very fragile and will take time to become strong. To help Lily fully attach to us she needs to know that we are her primary caregivers. We aren't going to pass her around as she is VERY wary of strangers. Lily is going to be our guide.

Long story short-

Please come to the airport
Let her come to you
Megan and I have to be the ones to feed change and soothe her

Everyone is welcomed to come to our home on Saturday and Sunday 1-6. Lily is not a newborn but still new to the USA please refrain from visiting if you don't feel well. As we said before Lily is going to be our guide and we will let you all know if anything changes.

AA Flt 928 Gua to Mia 825ct-1155est
3.5 hour lay over
AA Flt 1478 Mia To Balt 435-705Est

PS No pictures today... we are gonna make you wait for the real thing!!!

See you tomorrow!!!

Chris, Megan, and Lily Henry!!!

I SO wish I could be there too, but Arkansas is a bit far! I will be there in spirit. It brings tears to my eyes. What an exciting time...Oh, and as someone who did this not long ago, I totally agree with what you have said. Those are good guidelines. Soon, Lily will be jumping into the arms of family and friends.
Posted by: Reba on January 16, 2007 at 05:35 P.M.
Great! We are all so happy for you three!
I had planned to be at BWI to greet your return from the long journey, but unfortunately I have been sick for about a week and would not like to share ;-). I will see you all when you come to lunch with Planning one day (hopefully) next week sometime! Congrates again!

We are counting down the hours..

We are counting down the hours..

January 15, 2007

until we are HOME!! We are SOOO excited to be this close. Today we celebrated our one week anniversary as a family with breakfast at the buffet. Lily enjoyed her egg and milk! Although she got more on her and the floor then in her mouth.I think that she likes the way it feels in her hand more then the taste! I can't believe we have been here a full week! Chris and I are going to use the date that she was placed in our arms as our family day 1/8. We were going to use 1/17 the day that we come home but changed our minds. We just thought about it and eventhough we aren't home yet we have been a family since that moment a week ago.

Right now she is riding the horse in the baby room as Chris sings Bonanza theme song to her! She LOVES to ride that thing! We are going to do some shopping for her today. All week we have been eyeing the things that we want to pick up for her. Tomorrow Daddy and Lily are going to come to the baby room in the morning so that I can pack us up!

We will post one more time tomorrow morning and give all the info for the airport at that time. Until then here are more pictures!!!

Two more sleeps!!
Posted by: Aunt Tracy on January 15, 2007 at 10:47 A.M.
Dear Henry Family, We are so excited for you. I belong to a local quilt guild, Shorebirds Quilters, that Mary is a member of. She has been keeping us updated all along with the adoption of Lily. Congratulations on your new family!! We will all be glad to welcome Lily home!!
Posted by: Patty Woodhurst on January 15, 2007 at 03:03 P.M.
She is so beautiful! I love the picture where she looks terrified that Chris is about to EAT whatever is in his mouth. HAHA. I can't tell if she's about to laugh or cry. =P
Posted by: Maggie on January 15, 2007 at 03:18 P.M.
I can not get over how cute she is!! Jeff and I want to safe that naked baby pic. as black mail later on in life, or maybe her 16th birthday cake :)
Just kidding!! We can't wait to see you all!! Miss you and love you!!!
Posted by: Aunt Lizzie on January 15, 2007 at 04:29 P.M.
Thank you for sharing a special part of your lives. She is a beautiful little girl. You have been in my prayers and I look forward to seeing your new family member real soon.
Posted by: Diane on January 15, 2007 at 05:19 P.M.
She is just adorable. You just want to kiss those little cheeks! I am counting down the hours too until you are home. I remember VERY well that feeling of wanting to be home as a family. (Not to mention, share her with friends and family) I sometimes still cry when I look at Maria and wonder why we were blessed enough to have her in our family. Enjoy!
Posted by: Reba on January 15, 2007 at 06:10 P.M.
God allows all things to work together for good and now the "good" (GREAT!) has been realized! Please always remember to keep HIM first in your lives and your blessings will continue to be great as you begin this new journey! God bless you! She is absolutely beautiful! Love, Debbie T.

A little about Lily...

A little about Lily....

January 14, 2007

I thought that since we are through with all of the stress today I would focus on what we have learned about Lily.

First off Lily LOVES to dance and be danced with. Last night before bed her and Daddy had a dance party and she laughed soooooo hard! She is one of the only people that love the way I sing. Every time I sing she sways back and forth. Daddy was singing the Star Wars theme to her yesterday and she giggled the whole time.

Lily also loves to eat. We have been brave and tried eggs and different fruits. We get comments every morning about how cute she is when she feeds herself. Don't worry we leave a GREAT tip every morning!!

Lily is also a Kung Fu master!! We were in the baby room yesterday and there was a little boy playing with something that Lily thought was hers and she "walked" over to him and with the sweetest look on her face picked up her leg and pushed him with her foot in his chest and he feel over crying!! She went onto get to the toy! LOL All I could do was say I was sorry LOL at least his parents thought it was funny!!! I told Chris that we should have named her Tank!!

Yesterday was our BEST Daddy and me day. She is even letting Daddy change her an smiles at him. I think that she is seeing him as Daddy and not just some guy that hangs out with Mommy!!

I am going to run!! I will write more tomorrow!! We love you all and we will see you in a few days!!

Megan, Chris and Lily!~~

Oh, my loves, I've have been so excited watching the pictures and reading the journals. I've never seen a happier family! Lily is so blessed to have found such a wonderful Mommy & Daddy. Little does she know the many family members she has waiting for her!! Stay safe & well and travel safely. We're waiting with open arms (or in my case right now arm :) ) Can't wait to see you and hold my new Grandbaby Girl!!! Hugs & Kisses
Posted by: Grammy on January 14, 2007 at 11:20 A.M.
Let me get right to the point....I WANT HER!!!!!!!!!
Posted by: Aunt Tracy on January 14, 2007 at 06:04 P.M.
The pictures are SO sweet! She looks like such a happy little thing! I am impressed that she is going for took Maria two weeks. Two very long weeks. :) Anyway, enjoy this time learning about your new daughter. I can tell you that four months later, we are still learning...and loving every (almost every) minute of it! Oh, and enjoy the is yucky here. Or at least where we are. :)

January 7, 2007

This is will be the last journal entry until we are in Guatemala!!! We will become a true family of three as of approx 6pm EST!!!!!! This has been a long road full of unseen twists and turns but I feel honored to have been chosen to walk it. Not only to walk it but to walk along side the best person in the world. Chris and I have faced things together that have tested our love in ways no one else can truly know. Only to come out better for it. I think that we both will come out of this with not only our Daughter but also a deeper love for one another. I am so proud to call him my husband and I know that he is going to take great care of his girls in the days ahead and forever.

OK enough mushy stuff onto what you really want to know....we are really to kick the tires and light the fires!!! LOL The last thing that I have left is to do vacuum. And yes Mom we are still up!! I will be happy if we can make into the bed by 8:00pm. I guess in theory that is a great idea, but we will see!!

From Chris and I we love you all more then we could ever express. Thank you for all of your well wishes and remember to think of us tomorrow around 6:00pm. I will write again as soon as I can. Hopefully tomorrow I can spread good news!!

Just thinking about you and wondering if you are enjoying every minute! Cannot wait to read about your adventures.
Posted by: Reba on January 9, 2007 at 06:54 P.M.
You are on my mind contstantly, hope all is well. Anxiously awaiting your return. Love you guys.

January 6, 2007

We called Continental this afternoon and we were able to move our seats around so that we can sit together on all four flights AND I have a seat of my very own for the return trip!!! YEAH!!! Oh how the little things.... On the home front I dare anyone to find a piece of dust in this house!! I think that I have cleaned so hard that I have worn out my hands!! We also went through the luggage to make sure that we have everything we could need in case we have to stay a few extra days. I think that we are pretty confident that we have enough now. We have had to up grade the baby's luggage size. She now is now packed in a bag that is the same size as the one that Chris and I are sharing!! Chris just rolled his eyes after about the fifth time of "just in case...." I think that I have 'just in cased' her entire closet!!! Ol'well.... Tomorrow Chris is going to his hair did after Church and then we are going to hang around the house trying to tie up any loose ends and just TRY to stay calm!! I am going to get cleaned up now, I am smelling awful orange- like after spraying all that cleaning solution!!

In case anyone is counting... from the time of this post we are at T-34 hours until takeoff!!!

I love you both very much!

The Journey REALLY begins!!

The Journey REALLY begins!!

January 5, 2007

We spent the day mostly in a state of shock!!! Chris went into work this morning for two hours to tie-up the last of the loose ends since he won't be there for two weeks. Once he got home we made the hour long trip to Prince Frederick (where our agency is) to have our passport copies looked over. We were told the Embassy won't accept our passports because they are claiming that they were not notarized. For Lily to come home as a US citizen she has to come home on an IR-3 Visa. In order for us to bring her home on this Visa we have to prove that we did indeed visit her. So our Agency made color copies of our entire passport book and notarized for us today.

We were informed that because we are going to arrive pretty early in Guatemala on Monday Jose ( the agency's translator) will either be at the Marriott waiting for us or we will call him as soon as we check in. He will then take us to the Embassy to get this all worked out. Hopefully we can work it out to have her Visa appointment as early as Tuesday or Wednesday. When we come back from the Embassy on Monday Lily will be placed in our arms for the last time.

Thank goodness we spent the day running errands because as it draws nearer to go our brains are mush. We walked into Target this afternoon walked about half way down the main aisle stopped, looked at each other with this blank look and asked each other "why are we in here?!?!?!" Don't worry we got ourselves together (after we took a trip through the baby clothes :-) got what we needed and thought it best that we get off of the roads!! Tomorrow we are going to spend the day cleaning and making sure that there is nothing else we need!!

We love you all!!!

Megan and Chris

Hopefully we will be home next Saturday!!!

January 4, 2007

Well we are going to go a little prematurely to pick up our girl. There has been a hick up in the Embassy and they want a new copy of our passports. Why we don't know. However, we have been given the option to go to Guatemala and hand deliver them to the embassy in hopes of bringing her home a little faster. After not holding our child for pushing 8 months... lets just say it didn't take much to convince us to go!! We have made all of the needed travel arrangements and are going to be flying out on Monday and we are VERY hopeful to return home on Saturday a happy family of THREE!!!! We will be staying at the Marriott for the week and we will be able to update the web site during our stay. We are going to be EXTREMLY busy these next three days getting everything ready to roll!! We love you all and will update daily from here on out!!

Oh more news we did get an updated medical for Lily on Tuesday she is 21 lbs and 28 in long!! Everything else was as normal as can be!! We didn't write about this before now b/c we have been waiting on news of PINK all week and wanted to make the announcement all at once.

ARGH WE ARE GOING TO GET OUR BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy 1st Birthday Lily!!!

Happy 1st Birthday Lily!!

January 2, 2007

Dear Lily,

One year ago today we didn’t even know that you were born. But eighteen days after God gave the world you He would show us your beautiful face, a face of a child that we were destined to love. You were so small when we first saw your picture, you were barely bigger than one of our hands. That is how you got your name. We thought that you were delicate just like a Lily flower. Once we saw you, we immediately loved you with all of our hearts. It makes us smile to see how much you have grown and to see what a pretty Big girl you are becoming. It also breaks our hearts to know we have only held you in our arms and kissed your face but a handful of times. Now a full year later we sit on pins and needles waiting for the call that will change all of our lives. The call saying that we get to hold you again and never let go. The day we can bring you home forever and instead of kissing your picture each night we can kiss your sweet face. Until that day comes, we hope that you can feel the love that we send your way everyday and know that we miss you beyond any words can describe. Yet even though we have missed this year of your life, we know that we will be there with you for all the birthdays yet to come. Happy Birthday our sweet Brown Eyed Girl, and we will see you before you know it!!


Mommy and Daddy.
