WE JUST KNEW that we would love you and have so much fun, but now it's real. You are so much fun! I can see the joy of the Lord in your face, little guy. You've learned some sign language, you say please then smile so big because you can tell that we are proud. You have gained 3 lbs in 2 weeks. Today you got 6 vaccinations...two nurses coming at each little leg with me holding you. Not fun. You kiss us all of the time. You say mommy to me along with every other woman you see that you interact with. Same with Ababa. Even the doctor was Ababa. By the end of the 3 hour appointment you learned the word doctor. You love socks on your little toes. You even gave your big dog a lingering hug yesterday. When we are approaching the door of the house you start saying, "Owwwweeenn." And he so kindly greets you at the door. Your dad left for the store yesterday and you cried. You love being with him. Last night he got food poisoning and was very sick-all night and still this morning. Phew. It was hard for you to see him so sick.
WE JUST KNEW that you would have the yellow bed at the transition home.
