Okay - I only have a limited amount of time, but I wanted to jump on and share some pics. First, this is Micah sleeping at the House of Hope - he sleeps with his eyes open! It took a bit to get used to, but now I think it's cute :)
Here he is in his Bumbo - notice the excessive amount of drool - he is constantly eating his hands and drooling! He is definitely teething!
Here he is in his glider - he had some surprises waiting for him when he got home from his grandparents. Our friends also decorated the house - all the kids made posters to welcome baby Micah - one had a map of the US and a map of Africa with a plane in the middle with 3 stick figures- very cute!
We're starting to feel better - getting a schedule going. He still wakes up about 3 times a night and, this is so sad - last night he had a nightmare! Kevin woke up with him that time, but he wasn't awake- he was asleep and just crying. Poor little guy! He is pretty happy - he smiles a lot, but his teeth are bothering him, and he has a cough. He also doesn't like to be put down too often - he likes to be held, and held standing up, so I don't get to sit down too much. I've been taking him for walks in the morning and he loves that - he falls asleep towards the end and then I'm able to lie him down for morning nap. (I usually try to rush through a shower at that point and try to get more laundry done - we had lots from the trip!!)
Today we are off to the doctor - I'm excited to see how much he weighs and get some advice on the feeding and sleeping. :) Kevin has been wonderful - he is such a big help and Micah adores him. I'm going to miss him next week when he goes back to work!!
I thought I had a picture of the three of us, but it must be on Sharon's camera (our CHI Ethiopia program director). She is still in Addis so I will get it from her later. I'll try to remember to take one soon to share. :)
