choi boy is napping and i'm not sure how much time i have before he wakes up, so i'm just going to jot down some thoughts in a list -- no meaty, meaningful, thoughtful paragraphs today, okay? you understand, right? i know you do, that's why we're all friends. ;)
*last night was a bit rough, but still not nearly as bad as we had anticipated. choi boy finally fell asleep after a good 30 minutes of crying and grieving. so heartbreaking to hear him cry out for his "umma"...he woke up 3 times in the middle of the night. he cried a lot, but the good thing was, for the most part, he let us comfort and soothe him.
*the boy sleeps like a maniac. we were kicked, slapped, shoved and rolled on in the middle night. we all slept on the floor together and i'm pretty sure that if you took an aerial shot of us, we would have looked like an H or an N. the lil' dude also snores like a chainsaw. but, as the hubs said, it was the best worst night of sleep ever. :)
*choi boy is a lot smaller than we expected. he is wearing 12-18 month clothing and those are still a bit baggy. we brought mostly 18-24 month clothing (and that's all we have at home!), and he's swimming in those. you know what that means, right? shopping!!! i kid, i kid.
*choi boy is quite a little piggy. but, we're loving bonding over food and watching his sheer delight when he's eating! seriously, he smiles every time he takes a bite!
*our boy is also quite speedy. we knew he was walking (the FM told us he'd started at 10 months), but the boy is actually running/flying! he's quite steady on his feet, which are really very large compared to the rest of him.
*choi boy's got a few words under his belt, but my favorite by far is "oh-wa!" which is korean for "wow!". SO cute. seriously.
*our son (our SON!!!) is so sweet and has a very playful personality. he's been laughing up a storm with us and is so curious about everything. he's still loving the pups and has told the loud one to shush several times. love it!
*we are more in love with choi boy than we thought was possible. and we've only known him for a day! he is beautiful and amazing and more than we dreamed of...God is good indeed.
and, now, what you've all been waiting for...pictures! don't worry, i'm not insecure, i fully understand that from here on out, most of you will be stopping by only to see pictures of choi boy.
i am only happy to oblige. :)
this one's for my mom:
apparently, choi boy loves to clean. so far, he's hijacked the swiffer from my aunt, taken a baby wipe and washed the floor, and has tried to figure out the vaccuum cleaner. perhaps he'll actually motivate me to clean when we're home. :)
snuggling with daddy for a nap:
checking out the ergo with momma and cracking up over something:
and, finally, guess who loves bath time??
this is "mahn-seh!" which is kind of like, "hooray!"
is there anything cuter than a naked baby in the bath?
i think not.
