My sweet boy has such a fascination with water. I don't know why exactly, but he really does. If he hears the faucet on he comes running, trying to stick those little fingers in it. The very first thing he does in the morning is run into the bathroom and see if there is water in tub. So then he usually gets a bath. He takes so many baths a day, I think he must be half fish!
Some days I sit him out of the deck and give him 2 big bowls of water and a cup to play with. He loves it! I'm going to get him one of those little tiny kiddie pools to have on the deck once it's a bit warmer. Totally water obsessed. I don't think he saw much of it at the orphanage, so he can't believe he gets to play in it now.
It rained really hard here today and the rain was pouring down our rain gutters, so I set him in a chair in front of the window to watch. He was amazed by all the water everywhere. He was shaking he was so excited. Rich took some pictures, I'll post later.
He still doesn't want to eat anything but baby food. And he still won't drink anything. So I have to really water down the baby food. But the older kids left their ramon noodles on the table and he is standing there eating the rest of it all by himself! I haven't said anything to him, because then he will probably stop, but he's eating it! Kind of a big thing for him. :)
We're still praying and discussing going back to 'my special country' for another child. Or two. It's financially VERY difficult. Common sense would say 'no way' but the heart says something entirely different. If you adopt from the same orphanage it doesn't cost much more to bring 2 home instead of 1, but the cost is still so great. I know it's said that the Lord equipes the called, he doesn't call the equiped. So I'm really leaning on that right now.
