The Big One

The trips turned THE BIG ONE last Saturday on June 23rd. This day also marks seven months since we first met the boys. Happy Birthday Tsega, Bereket, Sira!


The boys went wild with new toys and after a few we had to stop; even I was getting overstimulated. Don't ever ask Jerry to lead Happy Birthday, he's a grinch. Guess first birthdays are more for the parents (or for the mom in this case).








So big and walking; Tsega pushes his brothers in their "new" hand-me-down car. I hope Jerry likes the horn because it squeaks all day long. . .

Ahhhh, it was only yesterday that these three came home so tiny and helpless. They could do nothing more than lay in our arms and our faces were their whole world. Seven months have flown . . .

Look how little they were at 6 weeks old just after they were relinquished (Tsega is on the far left and that's Bereket bawling).














Now look how big (what's Bereket complaining about?). . .


Tsega looks more toddlerish in his old age than his bros. Watch him do his usual rough-housing in this short video (then watch him rise and sit back with a stare of satisfaction). Luckily Bereket has a good sense of humor that day.

We love you boys, happy big one and happy 7 month anniversary. Please stop growing up so fast (and stop bawling about everything lately, it only gets worse, lol!).
