Welcome... or Welcome Back

So... we've moved.  It may have seemed like a spur of the moment decision, but it's one I've been thinking about for a while now - so I just did it.  I apologize to the followers of our first blog, but it was easier for me this way.  Like a band-aid.

If you're new to our blog - welcome!  I'll tell you a bit about us.  Yabi is 3 1/2 years old and is pure spirit and fire.  He's hilarious, exhausting, outgoing, imaginative, exhausting, a lot of fun, and oh, exhausting.  But, I'm pretty sure all three year-olds make their parents want to crawl slowly to their beds at the end of the night.  It's just a three year-old thing, right?  

Actually, he looks exhausted in this picture.  A rare moment.

We met Yabi in Ethiopia when he was 5 1/2 months old.  It was, and remains, one of the best moments of my life.  I'm pretty sure it ranks up there on his dad's list too.  And right up there with it - is meeting our second child, Mae, this past June - again in Ethiopia.

We kind of feel like the luckiest people in the world to have two amazing children from a country that we love and respect so much.  That being said, we're 99.9% positive that we're finished.  Time will tell, but we're pretty content with things as they are.

Does it get better than this?  Not for me.


  1. So fun!! Such cutie babes and love the new blog!

  2. This photo of cutie Santa and sweetie cutie cute cute is one of my favs ever!!!

  3. Okay! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Yabi's shirt in that first picture. How fun is that? I don't think it would have the same effect being worn by a girl but I really really like it!
