It's official....Silas found his voice today. He LOVES to scream and shriek and laugh and smile that big gummy smile. I wonder if the people on the airplane will think it's as funny as we do. ;)
And drool and drool. I think a bib will be part of each outfit for a while. He's cracking us up.
Today we went to the Former Fuelwood Carrier's Workshop, but because it's a public holiday today, the shop part was closed. We will go back tomorrow. We got to watch the weavers weave and it was amazing. Then we drove up to Entoto Mountain to get a view of Addis...beautiful and the air is filled with the smell of eucalyptus and cedar. It was ironic to leave the Former Fuelwood Carrier's shop and then pass current fuelwood carrying women coming down Entoto Mountain. I don't know how the ladies carry that load...they are small women and those loads are heavy.
Today's holiday here is in celebration of the day that the Ethiopians defeated the Italians. I think they had 4 different wars with them. Ethiopia is the only African country never to be colonized....they are very proud of that and they should be.
Last night was not so peaceful...we were up and down and up and down. Today he has had bigger bottles and we hope that will help with longer sleep hours. I think he's almost ready for cereal and solids....we also think he's grown since we got him.
Tonight is our last night in Ethiopia! We leave at 10:45 pm tomorrow. We're ready to be home, but it's been a fabulous trip...we met our son and made new friends and fell even more in love with Ethiopia.
Pray we have good sleep tonight and safe travels tomorrow!
love from ET,
jill, marshall & silas
