My baby's smile

I got to see Melkamu's smile for the very first time today. He has a dimple. I've never had a dimple make me cry before, but this one made me cry. Look at how precious he is.

I got a wonderfully complete social update on my baby. It talked about how he eats (very slowly, so Patrick will have company--I am destined to have the slowest-eating children in the world), how he sleeps (he moves around a lot, also just like Patrick and I), how he interacts with other children, how he plays, how he responds to other people. It says he loves hugs and is easily calmed and distracted when he is upset. It had piles of new pictures, and I am savoring each and every one of them.

My baby. I can't believe I'll get to give him a hug later this week.

"Easily calmed and distracted."....That is fabulous.

And the slow eating made me chuckle.
