Tues. We went to a park outside the Hilton Hotel. Had fun playing. We could tell Ephraim was a bit reserved due to all the other children there. We think it was an after school program. Dan had to pay a fee to take photos at the park. There were also guards around the park. One made the other children get off the swing so Ephraim could have a turn. We felt a little uncomfortable but said Thanks and took our turn. He was trying to be kind. We definitely stuck out as being a bit different. We got some fun photos though.
We also tried to do some more shopping but it is a big challenge for us. Dan and I may just be market place challenged....not our specialty.
Sisay is really moving. He can even walk a short distance without help but usually holds a hand....most of the time carried. He is preferring Mommy and has started showing his likes and DISLIKES. He has a bit of a temper and would like to challenge us on diaper changes, bed time and ?? who knows. The first day he really didn't eat or take much of a bottle...but started back to normal yesterday.
Ephraim is doing well... coming along on his English and Madeline is a favorite. He saves the chair for her at mealtime. He came up and gave me a kiss on the cheek when he was playing last night. :o) yea!
Today - Wed. we are laying low... and resting. Madeline had a rough night last night and so did Sisay, which means Mom and Dad didn't get as much either. We took a little walk earlier and have just been hanging out playing Connect Four, Punching Ballons, Cars and chatting. Dan is trying to convince Sisay to take a nap since he is obviously tired but he is not easily convinced.
Love you Toby and Mae. SO Looking forward to seeing you and hugging you - big time!
