abe update

We are about a week away from court and keeping busy while we wait. Abe loves swimming with the big kids!!

Abe and I were at Children's this morning for an EEG, hearing and vision tests. They had to place 30 electrodes on his head and lets just say, he didn't care for it too much. We have never been very concerned about his vision or hearing, but the EEG should give us some new information-- at least a good baseline for now.

Don't you just love this kids joy for life? He is seriously the best teacher I have ever had.

How should I take the sweet tech giving me a piece of paper with 2 websites that she was pretty sure would help me with Abe's hair?? :) I tried not to take it personally.

I have met J & T. . .they are having a blast! I'm so glad they are here! Also, about the hair. . .I have found Moroccan Oil Hydrating Lotion (for the hair) and it has done WONDERS for Gabby's hair. . .we put it on about three times a day out here in Colorado!!!

And so funny about the hair- Our Ethiopian friend said the same thing to me. I actually thought it looked good that day, too!
What a blessing little Abe continues to that little man!

Precious baby boy!!! He is SO cute!

Lori said...

Look at those toothies!

Praying for court to go through. I can't believe you're going back to get your second baby soon! It blows my mind. It seems like just yesterday you rec'd Abe's referral! Easy for me to say, not living the wait every day! Not to mention the ppwork!

Hair, oh, and it's even more "fun" w/a girl that has longer hair! I have awesome products, but they cost a bloody fortune!

Praying that the results are good - love you sweet-pea!

Julie said...

Thanks for your encouraging word on our blog. I've been following your family for quite some time now and have been AMAZED at what God has done through and with your family. What a blessing your little one is, what a blessing and example your family is. Thanks for being (although unknown to you :-) a mentor to me as we start down this road.
