Update On Wee Babe~

Wee Baby Boy has been with us for 3 months today!!!

He is so incredibly sweet and fun! He is becoming quite the busy little boy! He can now sit up on his own, he crawls, pulls up, and climbs! He babbles and is a happy boy.

He is attaching SO well and definitely knows who his Mama is :o). The week we spent in Addis was such a blessing and a great jumpstart on the bonding process. I know many are getting ready to travel and leave their little ones at home to go to Ethiopia and it is so hard but it is so worth it. Meeting our Wee Babe in Addis and seeing how his caregivers interacted with him was incredibly helpful. Remember this as you get ready to go Pookebear (Jen) and Mary Poppins! It will be o.k.!!

Wee Babe has now had all of his Dr. appts~ due to his prematurity~ and some minor issues. Bless his heart he does not like Dr.'s and he had to see a ton! He has checked out healthy save for not being able to see. Thankfully, very strong glasses are all he needs. He has had them since Saturday and amazingly he leaves them on. They have helped him SO much! He is much more interested in everything including EATING which is HUGE. He LOVES, LOVES, LOVES his bottle but has resisted solids.

It was so awesome to be able to witness him seeing himself in the mirror for the first time. He face lights up when looking in our faces. It's a whole new world for our little guy!

We are so humbled and thankful for this little blessing. God is so good and He does amazing work when He knits these little ones together!
