Fitting right in and this is how the boys tell us they are hungry :)
The boys have walked over to the table, gotten themselves up in their booster seats, and they sit with the hands folded like we do when we say grace. They do this to tell us "we are hungry." It is the cutest thing :) They are doing so well as they have been home now for 4 and a half weeks. They eat well, take their naps easily and sleep all nite. Both boys have gained 5 plus lbs each....both boys lab tests have all been normal - Praise God for that ! If you remember Judah ( Samuel) was very ill in Ghana and almost died and was hospitalized at least once for a week we were told with a bleeding issue and severe abdominal pain. He has not had any of this at all since he has been home. They only thing he had was a boil come on his hip...I was able to treat it myself and when the doctor saw him for the first time he cultured it and it came back as a staph infection and he was placed on bactrim. It was not mersa thankfully. Both boys had ear infections as well and had been on amoxicylllian so we just switched Judah's to the other one. They had to have all of their shots since we never got a medical or knew anything about their previous health records...which has been one of the most frustrating parts about our adoptions in Ghana but now that they are home we are making sure they get what they need medically. They have the sweetest personalities and are definitely twins- meaning what one does the other follows- even crying if the other one does. It has been alot of fun having them and it is starting to feel like we can't remember life without them :)
Sari is also doing extremely well. As you can see she does what the other girls do. She has been a sweetheart as well....willing to try new foods, new experiences with a very positive attitude. She eats well, and sleeps great. Having so many older and younger kids just helps so much . She loves having older sisters and she desires to help....We have to give her chores to do and she is a hard worker and seems to enjoy being like everyone else here. She still tries to "mother" the twins but a lot less and she seems to " trust " us with their care now. She is coming out of her shell and seems very comfortable living in her new family. I love watching her develope into the person she was created to be....
