Moments in our hotel in Ethiopia

We were able to bring Princess Mercy back to our hotel room with us right after our first meeting (this depends on each baby/child and how they think they will transition). We were enthralled with everything about her and honestly couldn't wait for her to wake up, from either her nap or her night-time big sleep.

If there was a language barrier, we didn't know it. After all the language of love and the preparation of the heart that God did in each of us, was more than enough for us.

One thing that we brought with us that we didn't need...nootchies (pacifiers). She obviously had never seen one and from her reaction...I'd say that she isn't wanting any in her near future. I don't know why I'd be surprised, none of her siblings before her wanted any either. You see, we are thumb suckers, and honestly I understand, as I sucked mine until I was 12 or 13. Then I became a 'closet sucker,' so go at it sweet baby. Though, we've never had a sideways sucker like you before, guess there is a first for everything!








Hmm, what's this...food already, I just ate?


Okay, she was not a happy camper with me and that nootchie (actually we spell it nutchi, but I thought that would really confuse you.) So pardon the out of focus shot, but I just had to try to capture it.

Troy said...

wow ... God's goodness shining through in those pics ... thanks for sharing!

Michelle said...

I love thumb suckers! My youngest quit on his own at nine months. I was so sad.

I wanted to tell you, that photo of you holding her in the sling (where you could be seen) and she's wearing the Ethiopia hat, looks like it belongs in a tabloid. (You could be a movie star!) It was my favorite from one of your first posts upon returning home.

Good thing she didn't like the nutchie....I didn't like when they automatically gave those to my Babies in the hospital.

She is a beauty and look at that smile!

Oh my heart!!! Such a beautiful girl, I just can't get over it!

From a fellow closet-thumb-sucker, let me just give a hearty amen to your support, LOL!
