14 Months Old Today! And, the Mocha Club


























Today Caleb is 14 months old! To celebrate, he got to go to the doctor again :) It was just a follow up, but we found out his ear infection has not cleared up all the way yet, so another round of antibiotics for our little guy....poor thing. On a lighter note, he did get to taste his first Oreo :) I discovered that he likes the creme, not the cookie part. He worked so hard to separate the two, and he got most of the creme, then he finally gave up and threw the rest to Pooh (that's a no no!)
Yesterday was such a nice day that we took him on his first wagon ride over to the school playground. He loved it!! He even went down the slide himself (it did take a little push from mom :) He seems to be changing and getting bigger with each day.....
Oh, and I am so excited to tell you about an amazing organization that I have been introduced to by other adoptive families. It is called "Mocha Club". The premise is that for $7 a month, basically the cost of what you would spend on two drinks at Starbucks, you can change lives in Africa! Is that cool or what!!! And you can even choose how you want your $7 a month to be used- they have various projects including education, HIV/AIDS care, orphan care, etc. They share Christ by first meeting physical needs, and they empower people from the "ground up" so to speak. They are fully credible and members of the ECFA. Please check them out! Just think how your $7 could make a difference in the lives of hundreds...much more than it could do at your local Starbucks :) Remember, only one life, will soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last! To check them out, just follow this link..... Mocha Club and please, watch the video! You will be challenged.....
