update from the transitional home

On Thursday we got an update from the director of the Transitional Home (TH). What a gift!!

As of 22 February, Silas weighs 9 pounds and is 20 1/2 inches of sweetness. It's reported that he smiles a lot, sleeps a lot, eats as he should and is "quiet", meaning he doesn't cry a lot. Howevah, Silas does NOT enjoy a bath and does cry a lot while that is happening.

I like that about him. Sounds like he is laid back, but will let you know if he doesn't like something. He's got a little sass. That's my boy.

Okay, the 9lbs surprised me at first b/c Artem is 22 lbs but then I remembered that Ethiopia adopts out much younger children than Russia does. I like how you get updates on Silas and his personality. I'll bet once you get him home and fill the tub with bubbles and toys there won't be a lot of tears.
