We are absolutely amazed by the blessing we received today! We went to the civil affairs office and filled out numerous papers and signed our names a dozen times. Marty went downstairs to pay some fees. The mom who was waiting with me for her son said, "I hear them!" and at that exact moment John Wesley walked through the door. I exclaimed, 'That's my boy!" He was far too busy to be bothered with meeting mama so he checked out everything and everyone in the room before I got to hold him. He gave me a little piece of candy and said, "Mama!". A couple of minutes later Marty walked back in the room and I turned toward the door. John Wesley saw him and reached out his hands and said in the sweetest voice "Baba!". The look on my husband's face was priceless. He absolutely melted and has been playing all day with John.
A few things we know about our son. He has amazing dexterity. He is hungry....constantly. He loves to play ball with daddy. He talks to us a lot and seems to think we are pretty funny. He is absolutely as cute as can be and he is far tinier than we had imagined. The pants he came to us in are size 12 months and they keep falling down and he pulls them back up and keeps right on going. He has an itty bitty foot. Probably about a size 4. I didn't bring any clothes that are going to fit him...atleast not any pants. I brought some overalls so we are hoping he can wear them until we get to a place where we can buy him a few things.
He is sitting on the bed with his daddy right now repeating words from some Playskool flash cards. He loves his toy cell phone and his beach ball the most so far. And we......oh my but we are in love with this little boy!! We are so blessed!!!
