Few pictures from today

OK, I know I have slacked on things in this world.  That’s no secret.  And there is really a good excuse.  Really there is.  I just can’t give it up yet.  Hopefully in the next couple weeks I will be able to talk about the exciting news of what has consumed my last 5+ months of my life.

In any event, here are a few pics from today … it’s sad in looking at our camera that we have not taken any pictures on our ‘good’ camera in a month.  We’ve done a few on our little point/shoot and our phone.  But next month we’ll do our own little photo shoot for his 2.5 year pics … friends, that’s just crazy.  Our boy will be 30 months old!  He is such a little man now … unreal what he is saying these days.  For example, at supper tonight, we were eating out on the deck (it’s been amazing here in TN the past few days).  As our side item, we had some squash.  I eat all mine and Silas nonchalantly picks up a piece of his, puts it on my plate and says "I'm borrowing you some daddy.”  Amber and I look at each other and laugh.  Yeah, it’s not the right word but what 2 year old gets that?!  It is definitely fun stuff happening around our house all the time.

Oh, before the pics, I’ve been horrible in updating where we are with Silas’ sister.  We are UNOFFICIALLY #24 on the list.  Even with all the things going on in Ethiopia, there was good movement the past couple weeks.  We still don’t know what will exactly happen in Ethiopia but it appears it won’t be the proposed 5 cases/day being processed.  It appears it may be 20-25 which would be about 1/2 of what they were doing.  However, before the changes, we know many families did not pass court due to MOWA documents not being there so would that mean they were really doing less than 50/day??  Who knows … we’re just praying for our daughter, for each child waiting for a family and that each child is truly an orphan and that any unethical processes would be dealt with immediately and those responsible be appropriately dealt with.

OK, with no further ado, here’s our boy :)


Before church …so big.  Really don't think it gets much cuter. Just sayin'


Silas was all about modeling today – here is another shot of him and immediately after wanting to see his picture


Silas and his momma – my 2 favorite people in the world.


I’m glad Silas makes this picture look good.


I never knew how much fun a tape measure could be.  Many of hours so far.  I’m surprised the thing still actually works.


Disregard the highwaters … the boy sits with his feet crossed like this all the time :)


Silas has to mimic what we do EXACTLY these days.  He had to get a pillow, lay down, and cover all the way up just like his momma.
