Getting to know you…

June 10th, 2013

Guess who was outside with his baba when we pulled into the orphanage parking lot this morning?

One little boy who’s a smart cookie, a cuddlebug, a sweetheart with an utterly charming personality, and a little stinker with the best giggle!

He remembered me!

He makes us laugh, is always pleasant and good-humored, when he’s doing his overstimulated “happy pterodactyl” shriek is best calmed by snuggling, understands my pitiful attempts at reading his language off our cheat sheet, is fascinated by his daddy’s beard, further fascinated by watching us eat, doesn’t miss much, and learns fast.

And yes!  He is eating!
