I Think We Wore Him Out


The play-by-play: Ash goes to the MN Children's Museum and spends hours running through play-sized grocery markets and science exploration halls and bubble making stations. Then he heads to dinner at Fasika's with mom, dad, and the grandparents for a delicious Ethiopian meal. He then decides to fall asleep on the way home where not only are we able to put him in his crib without waking him up, but manage to change his diaper and put on jammies (all while an entertained audience stands by laughing histaricly at how deep in dreamland the adorable babe is) without so much as a wink. I think it's safe to say his time in MN was very well enjoyed and he is officially worn out. Lots of pictures to share as soon as my camera-toting relatives send them to me (wink wink), but back to the grind for now. We do have a couple of countdowns we're enjoying at the moment:

*17 Days until our adoption is finalized in NY (March 6th)
*44 Days until we leave for Spain (April 2nd)

I LOVE the pictures and story! Sounds like you did wear him out!

And, you're going to Spain?! Perhaps I missed that post-where are you going?
If you're near Madrid, take a side trip to Segovia-SO WORTH IT!

Those pictures... fantastic! I love looking at little ones when their bodies are truly the most relaxed a body can be. The top one is my favorite!

As for Spain... did I tell you that I plan on going along for the trip? Surely I could fit in a large trunk of some kind? You wouldn't regret it, I promise!
