Welcome to The Unconventional Conventionalist; the place where I see life through my awkward eyes of living in the box while pushing my way out every chance I get.
|Jesse Getiso Craig: in my arms for 3 months|
My man literally smiles like this all day long. He is living, breathing joy. Three months ago, we arrived in Addis Ababa for the second time and went back to Hannah's Hope to bring our little boy into our family forever! I was thrilled to be united with our friends from our first trip, exhausted from our 24 hour flight, and giddy with some nervousness to put my little man in my baby Ergo and carry him out of the gates of the orphanage. He smiled when he saw us, gave us kisses like it was yesterday that we saw him, and trustfully allowed Steve and I to take him out of those safe and familiar confines of Hannah's Hope. Wow.
Three months later and here we are. He smiles just as big, has four teeth and crawls all over the place. His favorite song is undoubtedly, "If You're Happy and You Know It." "The Wheels on the Bus" comes in a close second. He loves to clap his hands, climb on Charlie and Marley, and give huge hair pulling kisses, which his big sister sometimes loves and sometimes hates.
We are a family. We are together, and our love for him is immense. Let the good times roll, buddy!
