But this was Noah, Jacob and Moses' first trip.
We were concerned that so much outdoor time would be hard for them. But they LOVE it!
They weren't able to go camping with us before because they came home August 2012 after we had been up here, and then 2013 M.A. got sick.
He's always thinking that you are his best friend!
He is very bonded to us.
He comes to me when I call him. He may hesitate, but he comes!
He likes to be with us, just hanging out, just loving each other!
He watches strangers with interest, but he stays near us.
But not often.
Now he lets us hold him when he's sad.
He has a hard time stopping when he starts to cry.
It breaks your heart.
He puts his whole heart into every emotion he has.
We bring things for him to chew on.
Today he was a little sad, so Tom asked him what was wrong.
He went to the door, he wanted outside.
But it's nap time, he'll have to wait.
He doesn't take a nap, but Mosie, Julius, Pauly and Mercy do.
He stiffens himself.
We ask him to sit upright.
He LOVES to smile!
I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE being his Mommy!
He likes to inspect new things.
But he never knocks things over or gets into things. He just looks.
I don't know about the girls from orphanages, but all 5 of our boys were super spitters. :o(
It's nice now to only hear it occasionally.
Now if we say "Noah- no spit!" He stops.
But Noah doesn't really care for balls.
He no longer clings to people for the affection he longed for.
Now he gets his fill and has his activities he enjoys!
It's amazing to see how confident he is!
He walks along walls and furniture. But he won't let go.
He pushes his weight on the gait trainer too hard, so it doesn't help him much.
We hope and pray he'll learn to walk on his own.
But if not, he does assist us when we transfer him.
He is such a blessing to all who know him.
We Thank God for a boy with such a LOVING heart!
