The first day he was curious but tentative. Yesterday he started smiling and today he's all smiles and giggles. So far he's been incredibly easy. He eats like his sister, loves to babble. He has the cutest little curly mohawk. He sleeps about 8 hours, then has a bottle, then sleeps 2 more. We're eager to extend that! The best thing we packed is Mylicon. When he eats our American cereal, which he loves, he gets gas and he screams louder than anything I've ever heard. Caroline's gas cries had nothing on this boy's lungs.
Later I'll post a day-by-day account of our adventures, but wanted to give you a few tidbits on our little bundle. We are having so much fun with him and in Ethiopia. Yesterday we met Mesay, the young man we sponsor through Yezelalem Minch, and his brother. It was great. Dan, Shadley's husband, showed them iPhoto, and made everyone crack up. We had a wonderful visit with a translator from YM. Mesay is so handsome and his brother is a little joker. You'll see the pictures soon. Mesay's brother needs a sponsor if anyone is interested. I can send you some pretty hilarious photos of him. I don't know his age, but I guess 8.
We're getting ready to eat a traditional Ethiopian breakfast and visit YM. This afternoon we'll go to Gelgela and tonight a traditional Ethiopian dinner and dance.
Can't wait to show you our giggle box. We love him!
