Meeting Them For the First Time!

We just met our little ones for the first time (over Skype)!  :)  Little A. sat very quietly and looked quite shocked at all the smiling faces in the computer.  Jordan said that, that was the first time he had seen a computer!  Miss T. smiled, waved, sang the ABCs, and said everyones' names!

Jordan updated us on their personailities....  Little A. ate a ton last night and Miss T. likes jumping on the beds.  Hmmm.... sounds like a certain person at our home....(Family joke).  ;)  She likes to color too! 

The little ones call Daddy "Ababa" which of course (if you remember from your Bible) means Father!  Addis Ababa means "New Father".  What a perfect place for them to be staying-- in New Father with their new father!

Little A. looked at the computer every time we called his name and Miss T. loved Daddy's hair.  Daddy says his hair is a "hit"!

For now the ladies here in the States are preparing to go ice-skating (for the first time in about 6-7 years!  Should be very interesting....  Bethany's been posting here) and the rest of the family in Ethiopia is sleeping!  Lord willing we will be able to Skype with them again tonight!

We finished up the Skype session by singing the Doxology all together as a family of 9~ what a blessing!

I'd love to share a photo, but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to do so online just yet....  So check back later!

Blessings!
