We Meet for the First Time
Baby Boy cried for the first 50 minutes of our visit and then fell sound asleep for the last ten minutes. Poor little guy! He was so scared being left with us! Fortunately, he did cling to us in his distress and didn't want us to put him down. Those are good signs.
Little Girl was unfazed by her brother's crying for the first 20 minutes or so, but then she started to look at Paul and I as if to say, "What in the heck are you doing to that kid to make him cry so much?" She is just starting to walk independently and will take about ten steps before flopping on her bottom and starting to crawl since it's still faster. She liked blowing raspberries and loved the iPad which we'd gotten out to try to distract her brother. I think Paul got a video of her trying to kiss her own image. Super cute! We didn't take any pictures of our little guy's face until he was asleep because he was so upset the entire time. He is walking nicely and liked looking out the window at the children playing on the playground.
We're not allowed to post pictures of the new kiddos until we have physical custody of them, so the ones I'm attaching will have to do. They are mainly for Atticus who will love seeing the plane that took us from Frankfurt to Ethiopia, as well as the Addis Ababa airport.
