We got home from Ethiopia and I rested quietly for the next week, lounging in bed. I just have a luxurious life like that.
I did spend a week in bed, but I was super sick. ugh.
Once I bounced back, we jumped right back into our busy life.
Our little man is doing so well. He’s sleeping through the night – YAY! And, he’s already showing signs of attaching. It was so sweet on Saturday – Tony took the kids to his company picnic for a few hours and I stayed home with a sick Ellie girl. When they came home, little man grabbed me and squealed while he started smacking and slobbering all over my face. I love that! I forgot how wet babies are.. and in so many ways!
Then, our baby girl Bear turned six on September 10th. She’s totally enjoying her new role as big sister. It’s been fun watching a new side of her personality come out.
Car’s birthday is the very next day. September 11th is quite a day for us. Eight years ago, as we all sat astonished by the events going on with the terrorists, Car made his way into the world. He brought great joy to our family and friends that day, and still does.
Now, we get to add the Ethiopian New Year celebration on September 11th. I refuse to bake a third cake in two days for it though! We’ll have to start a tradition of eating Ethiopian food for dinner sometime that week, so Car can still choose his birthday dinner. They do not use the same calendar we use here in America, so…Happy 2002!
