Okay, Okay…

Apparently, the fifth child pushed me into feeling I no longer have time to update our blog.  I think it’s more about having a baby than the number of children I have.  Suddenly, blog time is either during nap (but I have a million other things competing for this time), or while I’m typing one handed (I’m not very good at this…yet).

But, I don’t want to stop.  I love having a record of what is going on in our lives.  Even if it’s just for me to go back and reminisce.  Plus, I’ve made some really sweet blog friends that I would miss. 

Lately, we’ve stayed super busy.  Everything seems even busier when you throw a baby into the mix. 

Tony was in an accident and totaled his truck.  Someone tried to make a u-turn and didn’t check both ways, so they pulled right into him.  Fortunately, he and his mom were okay – just sore.  That’s what every family wants to do a couple of weeks after they get home from picking up their child from Ethiopia…buy a new truck.  ha!

Gideon is doing fantastic!  He is such a lover boy with us…but no one else.  That’s a good sign, right?  He seems to have picked up who his family is really quickly.

With everything we’ve been doing, I haven’t been good about taking pictures.  My hands seem to be full all the time for some reason. But, I’m sure I’ll get better.  It just takes practice.

Okay – on to the pictures…

He looks like he is adjusting very well! Adjusting to haveing a baby in the house again is wearing me out too. I haven't blogged since before we left.

Yay!!! An update!!!! I can only imagine how hard it is to get on and blog with 5 kids (one being a baby). I remember blogging while holding little Cheru. It was quite a feat. haha. I love the photos. He is beautiful--and I always marvel at how much healthier and happier kids look just a couple weeks after coming home. Amazing! Thanks for the update. I'm glad to hear that no one was hurt in the wreck, but uugh about the truck. What a disaster. :P

I love the pics. I just want to squeeze him. I'm so glad you are having fun with your little man. Happy Birthday to Car and Bear. I feel out of touch. I hope you all are doing well. LOL Suzanne
