2 Months Home

Yesterday marked Noah's 2 month anniversary :) As I have been saying in these last few blog posts, "wow!" You just could not imagine the difference in this child!!! God is truly working through the miracle of adoption to transform his life!

Noah's language has exploded! He is now putting together 4-5 words at a time and saying phrases like, "What are you doing?" and "It don't work, it's broken" (we will worry about grammar later :). He also has began asking "why??" several times a day- well, to be honest, several times a minute :) We are so thrilled and thankful for how well his language is progressing. It is truly an answer to prayer and a testament to what a brave and resilient little guy Noah is, and how good God is!!

He is also really beginning to enjoy school and his teachers have told us that he is interacting well with the other kids , and helping them with their ABC's- amazing! He is also becoming more comfortable at church and interacting with the kids at church. He goes to children's church every Sunday and seems to really enjoy it.

He and Caleb continue to be best buddies. It is sweet to watch. They still have their "brother moments" very often, but I guess this is just the norm (according to my dad who grew up with three brothers).

We also have visited with the primary infectious disease physician at UK, and everything couldn't be better in that area as well. Noah has no complications at this time, is not symptomatic, and does not require medication at this time, though most likely it will not be too much longer before that will be a reality for him. When that time comes, it will be a big adjustment and a large responsibility, but nothing we can't handle with strength of God.
So for now, it is smooth sailing :) We feel extremely blessed to be where we are, and though we realize that Noah still has much healing and adjusting yet to do,
we are so thankful.

Love, love, love these pics! Especially the ones of Caleb just grinning at Noah. I'm so glad you're having "wow" days. I'm sure there are "oh, no!" moments, too, but I love to see the blessings of "older child" adoption spread around!

I love all the pictures of the boys. They are both SO BEAUTIFUL! Hope you are well in Kentucky. Are you guys planning on doing the reunion in IL this Labor Day? It's very close for us (app. 3 hours), so I have every intention of being there.

Glad to see you're doing well. It's hard to believe it's been over 2 years since our first Ethiopian kiddos came home. TIME FLIES!!!
