7 Months Old

Our wee babe is 7 months old today!

We wish were with him now but we know in time we will be.

It seemed fitting that today we packed up his little care package which Lisa and Jason have so graciously offered to take with them when they go to Ethiopia to bring home their two wee ones(which could be as soon as next week - Yahooooo to you guys!) We have never met them in person but this is the kindness that adoptive parents embody!!

They are with the same agency as us and it rocks that they allow families to do this for each other!!!!!

We are so thrilled and can't put into words how much it means to us that you are doing this for us.

We are even more thrilled that your journey is almost at its end and you will soon be united with your 2 beautiful children!

Here are a few photos of the package we put together!!

We put in 2 little sleepers, 2 little blankets, a chewable picture book, and 2 little toys


Isn't this picture book great! I was looking for one just like this and couldn't find one. Then my sweet, sweet friend Hazel sent us this in the mail!

Perfecto! Thanks Hazel!!! We love it!

We are holding it up to the world map by Ethiopia :)...we are so sappy!

Happy 7 months baby Ade!!!

*edit* - I have come back to read this post again and again! I CAN NOT believe we are sending a care package! It makes me all weepy and such!

Can you believe it? You now officially have a son you can send a package too. It won't be long now and you'll be together forever. He's going to love all the goodies from "Mommy and Daddy."

Happy 7 months Ade! Isn't it exciting sending a package to YOUR CHILD!! It is so special, and I know your feeling, just got mine in the mail today too! (I feel like im a copy cat, I am doing a post too about a care package!) It is SOOOO crazy we are 1 day apart in our journey! Again, so excited that Ade and Nevaeh are buddies at the home. Will be cool to know they will be buddies for life.

And Rana, isn't it completely wonderful to send your baby a gift??!! I love your package and that frame/book is so cool! (Must bug Hazel to share where those can be found!) I was just re-reading my care package post... marveling that our little ones were going to get their package from us... isn't it fun to send something we've touched and held and kissed going to our babies?!! Yup. I love this post.
