3 Weeks Old

Myer is three weeks old.

On Tuesday evening, Seth and I (and Myer) did something we haven’t done in a really long time…..actually it’s been about 11 months…..we went shopping at Wal-Mart.  We received a gift card so we figured we would go pick out a few items for Myer, “M” and “A”.  Honestly, after going in there for about an hour, we realized that we definitely do not miss shopping there.  The gift card was very appreciated and we made good use of it.  Myer got a bouncer seat and monkey gym 🙂  We also purchased a small space heater (techinally for “M” and “A”) for the bathroom downstairs, because we don’t want them to freeze to death while bathing….but we’re already using it (hey…I shower in there also :))

Here’s a pic of Myer in his new bouncer.

Today, Seth’s grandma, grandpa, aunt and uncle were supposed to arrive for a weekend visit, but they are not able to make it due to health concerns for grandpa. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. 

Yesterday, we were told that “A” is being moved to the house in Addis today!  He will be there with “M” now until we travel to pick them up!  Pray that he has a smooth transition to the house.  We know that “M” knows he is coming and we hope she is able to comfort him and let him know about us.  We also have a recent college grad who is in Ethiopia working with our agency at our house and helping out as needed.  We pray that both “M” and “A” know we are coming soon!

    Myer is so cute! When will you leave to pick up your daughter and son?

    Can I just say that it is amazing that you went so long without going to Wal-Mart! It seems like we are there almost everyday and I am always so grumpy after being there 🙂

    Myer is adorable!! I do have to agree with you about not liking to shop at Walmart. It is so crowded and just crazy. We are fans of Super Target but it is crowded too.

    Exciting, exciting! I’m not sure how you guys contain yourselves. 🙂 This all has been a long time coming. I’m so happy for you both!!!
