I can't believe it's been two weeks since I've posted. Lame-o.
Update on baby #2 -
We're still sitting at #111 on the wait list. That is the number we got when we went on the list and I haven't heard of any referrals since then, so I figure that's about where we still are. We're also looking at a longer process because of the wait time from referral to travel. It is about 3-4 months right now. Last time it was 6 weeks. I have to REALLY mentally prepare myself for a longer wait this time. I think it was easy last time because I didn't really have time to think - it all happened so fast. And, I remember other moms asking me things like, "Is it driving you crazy - not being there and knowing someone else is taking care of him?" I felt fine knowing the nannies were taking care of him and didn't really worry. Now, however, I am a mom and I understand that question just a little bit better.
Update on Micah -
Micah is having a verbal explosion lately! It is amazing to hear him repeat words and put together sentences. His favorite sentence is still, "I want SNAAAAAAAAACK." I really need to try and get video of this because it is so funny. He also says the following words (and I am doing this so I don't forget someday): Dog (or Woof - he calls dogs woofs), shoe, bye, juice, Wow, I want get out, I want down, Dad work, book, and more that I can't remember at the moment.
He is also repeating a lot and trying to say things - sometimes it is comprehensible, sometimes not so much. He is getting very good at animal sounds - he woofs for dogs, moos for cows, does a weird high-pitched meeeeeooooh for cats. He also calls milk "moo" which is really cute. I think it is because of the cow on the carton.
I know there is a lot more that he is doing and saying, but my mind is blank. So, I'll leave you with these short videos of Micah's new favorite toy. (Sorry they are sideways!) Later, we turned it into a house...
Good times we are having with a simple brown box!
