Little Man Monday

Hello Dear IC,

Oh how I think of you these days! According to FedEx, our paperwork arrived in Ethiopia today. Luckily for us, it won't take us as long--it's been on its way for a week now!

Little Man, we gave thanks for you this week as our family got together and a main point of conversation was about you! You are the center of attention even before you arrive and I have a feeling you will be the center of attention for years to come.

Your dad and I are about to run a big race together. It's one of our favorite things to do together. We go running early in the morning and we've done several long races together now. I think it will look a little different when you get here but we have a stroller for you, depending on what age you are when you get here.  Maybe you'll like rolling along with us as we jog.

Your dad and I were talking recently about what you will be like and what kinds of things you might like. Of course it would be fun if you liked running like us but we are just so excited to see what you are like. If you don't like running, I'm sure you will be good at something else.  Soccer, basketball, swimming--whatever it is, we will sit on the sidelines cheering with all our might.  Your dad was quite the swimmer in high school. I was a dancer. Maybe you'll take up dance... I think your Uncle Mark would like that quite a bit.

Whatever you do, whenever you do it, we are already so proud of you. We love you with all our hearts and are counting down the days til we see you. Even if those days are most likely in the hundreds.

With Love,

Mom and Dad
