2 Years!

It has been 2 years since we picked up our precious little man in Ethiopia!  

I can't believe how the last 2 years have flown by!  He is such a joy in our lives and I cannot imagine our life without him in it!  It is unbelievable to me, how God perfectly ordained for this little man to be our son!  We are the luckiest parents alive to be blessed with this joy filled little man!  We have been looking forward to celebrating this special milestone with him for awhile!

While we were in Ethiopia, we picked up a gift to give him every year on his "Gotcha Day"!  This year we gave him a little wooden giraffe toy and an Ethiopian story book!

We have also decided to make Gotcha Day a fun family celebration day!  So Peter took the day off work and we took the boys to play at an awesome jungle gym!  They had a blast running all over the place!  Definitely a place we will need to take them again!

And then we took off to Ethiopian food.  I'm not sure if this part of the tradition will continue because our little Ethiopian doesn't seem to like Ethiopian food, but we'll keep trying :)

He was much happier with good old peanut butter and jelly :)  

Malachi, we love you so much! I am so thankful that we have gotten to spend the last 2 years with you in our arms!  You are an incredible blessing that I thank God for every day!  You are so smart, so funny, and so joyful!  You have taught me so much just by being who you are!  You filled my heart in a way that only you could!  You are the precious gift that I dreamed so long for!  Love you, love you, love you, sweet boy!
