Going Retro

Feeling nostalgic today, so my fav foto is from Isaac's first day in the US. It is so hard to imagine that he was ever this tiny. We look at this outfit every now and then and marvel at how small it is. He was 6 lbs when he came home at 4 months old and wearing preemie sized clothes that swallowed him! Last night at Bible Study I got to meet Peyton Jo, a new baby born to my friend Marci. She was 8 lbs. 7 oz. and looked so tiny. It is hard to imagine that Isaac was even smaller. Now he is walking, running, dancing, singing, talking, and as funny as can be. He is the happiest kid I know (especially when he is playing with big sis) and we can't imagine life without him!

Fav Foto Friday

This picture was taken at my parents house over Christmas. I love it because you can tell just by looking at the picture that Tenaye and Isaac love each other so much. She can make him laugh like no one else. Each morning, I wake up Tenaye first and then go into Isaac's room and bring him in to snuggle with Tenaye. That wakes them both up almost immediately. They smile and laugh and are just so happy together. Tenaye is so good for Isaac. He watches everything she does and tries to copy it all! Isaac has been really good for Tenaye too. She is a little mother to him and I really believe he has eased her transition into our family. Once again, God's timing has proven to be best. When we passed court with Isaac and then had to wait almost a year to bring Tenaye home we were constantly asking "why". Now we know. God knew Isaac needed to come home and be nutured and loved so he could grow and thrive. I truly believe if he had been in Ethiopia much longer he would not have survived. God knew Tenaye would be well taken care of at the orphanage and that would give her time to learn the language there (her 2nd) and understand what was happening when we picked her up. She was then able to attach to Isaac very quickly and have an easier time accepting Jason and I as her parents. God is good!

Fav Foto Friday

Another blogging trend that I am going to give a try in hopes that I will post more often.

I have two fav fotos for this week. These were taken last fall by a friend of my sister's.

Wordless Wednesday

or not....

So I have seen this on several other blogs I follow and thought I would join in the trend. Wordless Wednesday is just as it sounds. A favorite, funny, weird, strange, odd picture is posted and no caption is given. We will try it out. Maybe this will help me blog more since it is really just pictures everyone wants to see anyway!
