Caleb had a great time dressing up for Halloween! Isn't he just the cutest little lion you have ever seen? We decided to dress him up as a lion because his most favorite stuffed animal, Mr. Lion, goes everywhere with him and Caleb sleeps with him every night. So, a lion just seemed like the natural thing for Caleb to be :)
The upcoming week is going to be a difficult one for me- I really am going back to work for sure this time, and even though it is part time, it will be the first time in almost 11 months that I will be leaving Caleb on a consecutive basis. I am so thankful that God provided our family the opportunity for me to stay at home with Caleb for such a long time- I feel very fortunate. I can see how much the time has meant for both of us, and for that, I am sooo thankful. Caleb has adjusted so well, and I know he will be fine without me for 20 hours a week. I will just miss all the little special times with him, like putting him down for his nap and being able to hold him when he wakes up, saying his prayers with him before "bite bite time" (lunch), you know, all those sweet moments. I guess it will just make every moment I do spend with him even sweeter :)
Also, this weekend is the AWAA Spirit of Adoption Seminar at our church. I have really been praying that God would speak to hearts and bring folks to this seminar. He can do anything, and I trust that he will! Oh, and good news- one of the families at the last AWAA seminar has sent in their paperwork to AWAA for the Ethiopia program! Praise the Lord!!!
