The biggest change has been William. When we first got William, he wouldn't crawl or use his fingers to pick up anything. I just don't think he was ever allowed to do anything but just sit. He's now crawling all over the place, and I'm pretty sure I saw him standing on his own for just a few seconds. And the big accomplishment this week - we are feeding ourself. Yep, my fear that William would starve if left on his own to eat has been abated. That little guy is really coming around now that he feels better.
Ella and I went clothes shopping the other day - my girl loves dresses. She reluctantly let me buy her jeans and shirts, but she picked out two new dresses that she really wanted. Good thing we did that, as Daddy invited her and Andrew to go with him to an Arts & Music program at Lafayette Schools, where Dr. Eiler (Chris' former superintendent and his mentor) is being recognized. They clean up pretty well, and Chris was quite proud of his kiddos. Can't wait to hear how they enjoyed themselves. In the meantime, I'm putting the boys down for a nap and enjoying the peace and quiet.
|Ella and Ethan watching TV. |
Ella has a real connection with Ethan since they were in the same orphanage.
|Ethan is going to be our trouble-maker - he gets into everything and thinks he can do anything. |
But he's so darn cute it's going to be hard to ever be mad at him.
|Proof that they do play nice together sometmes.|
|No more being fed like a baby bird - he will not starve afterall!|
|What a fine group - they clean up nicely.|
