Happy Birthday Addisu!

Alright, so even if yesterday wasn't Addisu's technical birthday, it was his big birthday celebration. Me and Elizabeth are leaving for a Camp for a week (which I will blog about when I return) and we all wanted to celebrate Addisu's birthday together.

Last year, even though Addisu was home, he had only been here about a month and a half. He still didn't get our culture our language ,or anything besides "Mommy," "Daddy," "Cabe (me)," "Debeth (Elizabeth)," Joshua and Gabby were his family. He didn't get why exactly we stuck some big chocolate cake in front of him or why we gave him presents in wrapping paper, but he kind of went along with it. This year though, was different. Difference Numero Uno:

This little guy LOVES his cake now. As you can see, he doesn't have the whole three-year-old portions thing down, but at least he knew he wanted "Chocate Cake" for his "Birtday."

Last year, we were getting him some little developemental toys to get all of his fine motor skills up to date even though they were pretty great already. This year he got this. Difference Numero Dos:


Addisu had been enjoying Gab's Dora Kitchen set (seen adjacent to the workbench), so we figured we'd get him the boy equivalent. and needless to say he was surprised instead of confused. I tried to upload the video, but it wouldn't let me because it was probably too long. alas the trials of blogging :D

But nonetheless, Happy birthday Addisu! It's been a crazy 13 months, but we wouldn't change it for the world!

See you in a week! I'll be back with pictures and plenty of posts telling of my time at Camp Veritas!
