2 Weeks Home!
Patrick and I were looking at each other last night, and realized that we had been home for two weeks with little Eli! The time is flying by, and I can hardly believe that we are at this point in our journey. We are beginning to adjust to being a family of three, with our VERY active toddler. He climbs, he runs, and he eats like no other 17 month old I have ever seen!! He LOVES food and would spend all day eating if it were physically possible. With the amount of eating and sleeping he's doing, I actually think he is on the brink of a growth spurt...maybe when he becomes 18 months old in September, we can start to say goodbye to his 9-12 month sized clothing :). I actually can't believe, looking at pictures, how much bigger and older he seems since Korea! He is still working on learning some English words ( most of what he does is baby babbling), but he seems to understand a lot of what we say. He uses the Korean words "Oma" (mommy), "mul" ( water), and "mam ma" (food). He is saying "Adda" to refer to his daddy and a lot of sounds words, like "Whee" and "Boom". And he definitely says "go" when he wants to go on a car ride!
