A couple praises - 2 days in a row, while rocking him to sleep for nap time, we had no kicking, screaming or biting... praise the Lord! I could also feel him starting to relax into my chest as I was rocking him... SO SWEET!
A couple prayer requests - we are heading into round 2 of giardia treatment and this little boys belly HURTS! It's still pretty bloated and every day when he has a bowel movement (sorry TMI!) he cries! Diaper changes are VERY traumatic for him so we are trying everything creative we can possibly think of (thank you Cris Peters for the ideas... used ALL of them the last 2 days!). Please continue to pray for bonding! Please pray for nighttime - Aweke has night terrors for AT LEAST 5 hours per night.. he seems to wake up well rested, but I am NOT! :) haha! My hubby went back to work yesterday so he's been moving to the couch each night around 2am or so... which is sad for me! I love me some snuggle time with the hubby and DON'T like him on the couch! And last, but not least, please pray that he would start to truly understand what mommy and daddy mean to him... he's really only been in a family the first 4 months of his life and has been in orphanages since that time, so the idea of a family unit is completely foreign, he's not afraid of any strangers, and tries to go to others for comfort... so, you guessed it, we are trying to do some serious coccooning! :)
Here are a few pics for your viewing pleasure! :)
Gotta run... naptime is almost over! :)
