What a good work out will do to Isaac Temesgen…

My first workout…(yep–it made me hungry!!!)

Whew! How thankful I am to “mis padres”! They are in town (WOOT!) and Mr.ITY had his FIRST workout this morning in physical therapy. After TWO hours of this…

My little prince did THIS

Can you believe that?! He passed right out on the therapy table!!! He was OUT. So…while the physical therapist drew up our “homework” for next week…I snapped a few pictures with the natural light falling in on the physical therapy table:). A momma’s gotta do what she’s gotta do;) How precious is he?!

From the TIP of his head and sweet little curls…

And all the way down to his sweet little toes…

How I love every bit of this sweet baby. Oh…and he has his birthmom’s beautiful hands…I am so thankful that I know that…and how precious they are…

He TRULY completes our little family…Want one of these for your home? Well…my sweet friend Addie gifted me mine–BUT the hands that made this started reading my blog after she made it! And…we’ve been emailing and reading one another’s blogs:). Don’t you just love the blogworld?! If you would like a creation like this for yourself or to gift someone–visit Rachel’s etsy story here:

Hmmm…maybe I should start advertising;). Since our blog gets any where from 1,500-2,000 unique visitors a day–we could do advertisements AND pick a family each month to sponsor…with the $$$ from the ads going to their adoption expenses! Just a thought. Might be on to something;). I love me some fundraisers for a cause!!! And there is nothing more FUN and more of a blessing than helping a family bring home a sweet one!!!

Hope you all have a GREAT weekend! Isaac Temesgen’s birthday party is SATURDAY! I’ll try my BEST to post some pictures from his cake smashing on Saturday. Truly–there are SO many of you who have BECOME a part of our lives…yes, even across the country. SO many we haven’t met that we have just become FAMILY to us…so dear to our hearts!!! Many of you have prayed for Isaac Temesgen BEFORE we even knew his name!!! And you rode that roller coaster ride with us as we wondered when we’d get him home! How I wish I could have you ALL here to rejoice and celebrate this day tomorrow with us!!! We’re keeping his party low key tomorrow…but maybe you should mark your calendars NOW for his 1 year Gotcha Day next June;). Just sayin’;).



P.S. You have to listen to my new favorite song for where we are right now. It’s the first on my blog playlist. It’s called “Me” and it’s by an incredibly talented artist…who we just love PLUMB. I can’t recommend her “Blink” cd enough. And the song “Me”…I do believe she wrote it for me and Isaac Temesgen for where we are RIGHT now. LOVE.

Another therapy (and guaranteed sleep inducer) swimming!! Yup. Even now. Lots of trusting momma and holding. Lots of moving body in with lighter weight. Lots of movement to gain body control. The only trouble I continue to have with Teg is his drive to go under.. all the time. And he swallows so much water his distended belly returns almost immediately… followed the rest of the day by lots of peeing. But it is sooooo wonderful for all the tough stuff we’re supposed to be doing. Ask your PT folks what they think.

I mean, could he be any CUTER??? I just love those pics…and his sweet lips! Precious! And I love the idea about ads to help families fundraising for adoption…I think you are definitely on to something!
