I was reading over my last post and realized that, while I had gushed on and on about Micah & Mamush being friends, I didn't mention the wonderful friendship that Jenni & I have. I feel so fortunate that ours were the first two dossiers for CHI, and the first two referrals. I really don't know how I would have made it through all of the crazy-ness without her. She was there to lift my spirits when they were down, and to celebrate all the wonderful moments with us (and us with them!). Jenni - you are an amazing person, and I am lucky to have you as a friend - I'm so glad our boys brought our lives together. :) I just had to say all that!
Onto my cool find... the other day in Borders I was looking for a kids music cd (this child LOVES music!) and I found a cd called African Lullaby. I love it - and so does Micah. Although it doesn't feature any Ethiopian singers, the music is beautiful and the voices are amazing. I am happy to have found it. I'm also thinking of getting a cd from the African Children's Choir. Micah's favorite songs right now are Godspeed by the Dixie Chicks (I swear he smiles every time I play it) and Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson. He also enjoys a bit of Social Distortion, especially when Dad is singing and dancing goofy to it (he loves it when we act like idiots).
And, just to remind you how cute Micah is :)
