look at this child.
growing so fast.
Did I get robbed of my little tiny child? This five month old is large. skinny. but large.
I really want to talk to you about something other than him.
okay, let's talk about my other child ;)
we are going to meet him march 25th!!! IN ETHIOPIA!
I cannot wait to meet that little cutie.
He is old enough right now (13-14 months..) where he KNOWS his name. So we really want to keep it a part of his name. I think we are going to keep his current name as part of his new name. Talk about identity. I really want him to keep part of his "old" identity from the orphanage, because he is a little older.
GOSH, he is cute. I am a little partial.
I love this guy.
This weekend, we hung out with our sweet, wonderful friends. They adopted a little guy from Ethiopia not too long ago. They are the only people we know that have a child from Ethiopia, so we have lots of questions for them, clearly. Since we are leaving soon...we have so much to find out. It was great to watch her discipline her adopted child. Her toddler. My friend lesli is a great momma. I loved watching it.

|l to r: kevin, my daddio, my momma, me, brandon, jenny (mil), calvin (fil) Love them all so much.|
I will talk more about this later...but my large group of family (including Kevin, on the left who is a family member by friendship) ran/walked a 5k this weekend in Kentucky. Noone wanted to do it, but I reminded them that we were making memories. Our pastor constantly says that...whenever he invites us to do fun (inconvenient,expensive or not sounding fun things) he tells us that we are MAKING MEMORIES. So, my parents did their first one. My in laws did their second one ever. Brandon and I did it. It was great. More on this later. :)
