Our First Update

We got our first update on Friday! No pictures yet, hopefully this week.

The first sentence of the update says: "Loudince is a big boy!" It goes on to talk about his health (which btw is very good) and his personality. They say he is "very active and joyful." I love to hear he is joyful.

The update also lets us know what paperwork is being processed. It says his file is just about ready to enter "IBESR" without going into deep detail IBESR is the longest part of the process and the way I see it the sooner it gets there the sooner it gets out. So lets all hope that our paperwork ends up moving quickly and painlessly and is approved so we can move on to the next step. We anticipate the file being in IBESR by January. There is a lot of work being done on our file while we wait, so rest assured it is not sitting on someone's desk gathering dust.

I can't wait until it's my turn to go visit the creche. I am excited to hold Kobe, read him books, and play. It will be fun to meet all the other children there as well. The children are all so cute and with their bright smiles you can't help but to love them!

What a boy!!!

I have good news and I have bad news. I'll start with the good news, I'm a good news kind of person.

Good News: Kobe is such a boy! He was at the doctor and I was worried. Long story made short he was at the doctor because he was playing and put something in his ear. *Laughing now*

Bad News: Like I said he was at the doctor so the family from Montana who are also adopting a little boy were not able to get photos of him. But it's OK as long as he's not sick, and if he's playing and sticking things in his ears, I would say he's doing OK.

Good News: I signed up for December updates, which are going to be back to us hopefully by December 1st and they include 15-20 photos, one minute video, and all the good measurements. So we'll have great photos in no time.
