A few of my favorite things...

It was just my birthday and my first Mother's Day. Here are a couple of the sweet gifts that I received:

The flowers are from my sweet niece. The collection of poems is from my sweet husband. He actually purchased the book a while ago, hid it (making sure to tell me where he hid it so I wouldn't look there) and then forgot about it until I reminded him that I surely had just one more birthday present coming. I love being surprised ;) For Mother's Day, he surprised me with our first grown-up wine glasses. So fun!

And then, of course, we can't forget this precious gift...

We love this boy!

We are so in love with our little boy! CTBR is such a gift. I love being a mommy to him!

As far as the nitty gritty...(for those of you who like this sort of info - especially you adoptive mommies)...Beniam will be eight months old next week... he is such a big boy now! He has grown out of so many of his clothes that were huge on him when we first brought him home. Yes, I know this is a good thing, but it still makes me a little sad.

He is still waking up 2-3 times a night to eat. For those of you who know how much I like to sleep, I have adjusted to this amazingly well. But, my sweet hubby got up with B this morning and let me sleep in until 9am. Soooo nice. They actually fell asleep together playing on the sweet.

This boy loves to eat! Peaches, pears, squash, sweet potatoes, avocado. If it comes on a spoon (or on Mommy's finger) he likes it! No teeth yet...I am wondering how that will go.

I love watching B grow and change and accomplish little developmental tasks. We never know what amazing feat he will accomplish each day.
