Yesterday was Caleb's first day at our home church (he had been to church with us on Christmas Eve in Ethiopia). He did so wonderful! He smiled at almost everyone and allowed many people to hold him. Yep, he showed off big time. He was good for most of the service, but started to get a bit restless at the end, so Zack took him out of the auditorium for a little bit. At the evening service he actually stayed in the nursery the entire time and did wonderfully. I was afraid it was too soon to leave him, but I went back periodically and checked on him and he was just playing away. He has adjusted so well....we can hardly believe it!
Also, today he took some major steps toward his attempt to walk! He walked about four feet, back and forth between me and my mom many times. He is so strong! He stands up on his own, gains his balance, and off he goes. It won't be long before he is walking all over this house!
And one more very important thing happened today...our good friends in Lexington, Chad & Karen Bowman, received their referral for a precious little girl this afternoon! They have been waiting around 11 months and they have done so with such grace....we are thrilled for them today! Congratulations Bowman Family!!!
