Late post for a BIG weekend!

Well, this is post is coming to you all much later than was intended.  This past weekend was a big one for the Wyse-Fishers.  On Friday we legally and officially became a family according to the State of Illinois.  Of course nothing has changed - we have felt like a family ever since we've been home from Korea, but now everything is very official.  Miles did great on Friday while we were at the courthouse and held off all tantrums until about the time the lawyer was questioning me and asked if we were happy with how everything was going.  Even with Miles screaming a kicking next to me (which luckily only lasted about 15 seconds) I had to think "of course!"  Afterwards we went out for Miles' favorite food of the week - celebratory pancakes.  Here you can see pictures of Miles at the courthouse, us with the judge, and then getting pancakes at LePeep.  It was a great day.  In fact, we decided to celebrate that evening with any friends and family that was around to celebrate with.

After that we were able to see a show, but even more exciting, meet some of our friends from blogs that we (or I) have been following since we've been home.

We were able to meet the couple that took Miles' care package over to Korea for him, and delivered his beloved Monkey that you've seen in so many pictures.  We even got a group shot of people with their toddlers that have come home in the last year.  It was so good to meet/see everyone even though I feel like I already knew them and their children so well already!
I'm going to leave you with a photo of Miles and his new favorite thing to do.  He LOVES putting on our shoes and walking around the house.  He'll even dig shoes out of the closet to put on.
