Could Bagheera have a larger tummy?

The countdown begins.........from today only 12 more days until court! Less than 2 weeks! One of my email friends is returning from her 2 week trip to Ethiopia today. She went to many different places and then spent some time at the orphanage where Fraole is. So, soon I should be getting some insight into his little personality and such. Her son and Fraole have been in the orphange together since June. I'm looking forward to that email!!!

Cooking class

This is the kind of food my little one is used to eating in the orphanage. I either have to find some ethnic food store that sells (the sourdough type pancake bread) ingera (sp?) or become an expert at making it. It is quite the staple there. So, finding this is on my to do list. Maybe, if I get lucky I can find and take a crash course in Ethiopian cooking.

Our little guy will be getting his little word book next week. I couldn't fit his plane in the package,so he will have to wait for that when I go to get him. We did manage to get some mnm's in his package and some finger puppets and self ink rubber stamps. He should have some fun with his friends with those. This week we were asked to pick his bday so they can make his birth cert. with our names on it. I think we are going to pick a Feb. bday so he can start getting early intervention services through our school district. Jeffrey wants it to be the 22nd since that was Clyde Drexlers # and his bday is on the 22nd of April. We got a more accurtate "guess" of his age and the dr. at the orphangage believes he is closer to 2.5to 2.75 years old. So, he will turn 3 in Feb and we most likely will have him start K when he is 6, unless this reading teacher of a mom can really work some magic!
