New Pictures of B

Once a month we get an update on how Benjamin is doing, complete with a couple new photos. It is one of my favorite days of the month! Yesterday was Update Day. Look at how our little guy has grown!

He's got two teeth on the bottom now!

And curly hair! He's got curly hair! A lot of Ethiopian kids have beautiful loose curls, and I just love them. I was so hoping that our little guy would have hair like that. And he does!

His chin and neck look exactly like Madeline's. That makes me happy. He looks so solid and healthy. He is up to 21 pounds now at 8 months! He's in the 73rd percentile. Woo hoo! He has gone up every month. He's eating several different foods now, and he can sit without support. They say that he laughs a lot too. :)

Oh I absolutely cannot wait to have this precious little guy in our arms. It won't be long now!

We are praying for your family as you put your home back in order, Sarah. What an amazing story of God holding the flood waters back from your home. We are so grateful for the gracious gift you are giving our family over these next 6 weeks. It is hard to put in words how thankful we are for the body of Christ! Your son is precious! Thanks for sharing pictures!
with joy,
Amy Kirk
