And...we've got a walker!

We had been hoping that Malak would walk by the time he turned 3...so he is really exceeding our expectations and is quite the genius!! :)

I kinda love that while he's walking he says, "Yes, yes, YESSS!"

(could you tell we were a little excited??)

Not only does he walk...he knows how to snap! Well....almost. :)

Dude- your totally in the inner circle and all my old peeps will hear the news first along with the picture via email! Really- can it seriously be taking this LONG??! Natalie also informed me that the wait until a court date is now 3-6 months-OUCH! That makes my maybe 3 month old boy 6-10 months by the time we meet him...boo hoo! We're actually hanging in there, I've just started recently jumping everytime the phone rings hoping it's the news on the 24th we reach 7 months. All I have to say is that I am so thankful we are enduring a long wait on adoption #2..I would have poked my eyeballs out if this was #1! BTW- I totally hear you about becoming a complete blogger loser- I just can't keep up anymore. I do try to peak in on my friends though it least once a week!
XO,

Yea, congratulations to Malak; he looks so cute. We're wondering when Abby will take off; she's taken one step on 3 separate occasions but fallen right afterward.

Kerri said...

Yay Malak!

Julia said...

He is so cute. I love that little sound he makes at the end of "yes" and that snapping is the cutest thing ever!! :) THanks for sharing!

Lori said...

So you want him to walk, snap AND say banana all in one post! This is the problem with over parenting! ;)

Adorable - I love the lisp with Yes! :)

Jess said...

I can't decide which I think is cuter...the snapping or the "yesh..Yesh". I love that guy!

Ted and Lori said...

I was totally unprepared for how exciting it would be when Abe walked for the first time. Every step was so thrilling. Super cute video, love how he says 'yes'. Abe says a similar "yash" :)

Hi Eric and Tara!

Just wanted to drop you a note and let you all know how blessed I am to see your heart for Malak and adoption. I, too, hope to adopt a child someday. Please feel free to check out my blog! Looking forward to reading more about your adventures as a mommy and daddy!
