Bruk’s first plane ride! As we were walking down the Jetway in Ethiopia, a nice woman offered to take our picture. By our gushing over him about the “big airplane” that we were gonna fly on, she could tell that we were having a special moment and jumped in to help.
Snoozin’ in the Dubai airport. We had an almost 7 hour layover so we made the most of it by sleeping, strolling and giving him his first taste of ice-cream. You would think that he would love it but…. not so much.
Since being back we have carved out lots of time for just being home and bonding as a family. Gradually, we have been introducing Bruk to his whole new world.
[Great] Gramps finally got the “knee” time he has been wanting for so long!
Of course, he loved playing on the floor with both of his Grandma’s! Aren’t they so cute!?
And what’s Fall with out pumpkins!?
Life is a lot more messy and it seems like the apartment is never “really” clean anymore, but hey, at least he pitches in.
Overall, our boy is really doing great. He enjoys being outside and taking baths (which tend to go hand in hand these days). Bruk is adjusting to us as mom and dad quicker than we had imagined.
It’s such a fun time of year to have him with us so we will certainly fill you in with the next great adventures!
