"Here we go! Kidist seems to be making a shift out of infancy! Her face and movements are maturing and words are replacing some of the crying! Kidist has developed a passed down trait in many Ethiopians, not to mention a form of communication, the raised eyebrow! It is used to 'agree with', like us saying 'okay' and is particularly cute on a little baby! Kidist has some little dimples that are becoming more prominent and likes her minestrone soup! She was holding onto her crib today and I was taking turns kissing one hand at a time and each time she would pull that hand back; staring at me but never backing up! She is too much for words!
So the excitement - and packing, getting the house ready, making arrangments for N stress - builds as we get ready for our trip. I can't wait to hold our girl - to get a little of her infancy before she moves into full blown toddlerhood! So close!!
