Noah is ours forever!

We made it to Guatemala this afternoon with little delay. We got in a little after 1:00pm local time. We got to our hotel about 2:00pm but our room was not ready so we had to wait in the lobby until about 2:45. We were supposed to be called in our room at 3:00 to come pick up Noah, so we were quite anxious to get to our room. Shortly after 3:00 we were called down and Noah was placed in our arms forever. The afternoon and evening have been very good. Noah seems like he is a very happy baby overall. When we first got him and we were still with his foster mother he was all smiles. He laughs often. He has been some fussy this evening, we think because he is with unfamiliar people in an unfamiliar place, but he seems quite content now. We will be getting Hannah tomorrow afternoon, after our Embassy appointment. Joel is doing so well with Noah. He could not wait to get to Guatemala to "take care of Noah and Hannah." He checks on Noah often and says "Noah is great," "he sounds beautiful," and "I love him." On to the pictures:
