Tate update!

We got an update on Tate today!  I can't tell you how great it is to get to hear a little bit about who he is with each update!

"I found E. chewing on one of his favorite toys today when I walked into his room. He just looked at me as if to say, “Hey.” E's never shown any signs of stranger anxiety, so he and I have this kind of familiar relationship where I can just walk in and we just pick up where we left off.  I don’t have to keep a formal distance from him in order to help ease him into our visit. He’s always ready to hang out for a while—mild-mannered, relaxed, content—no worries and just happy to be around people with a good toy to chew on."

I just stare at each picture until I have every little piece of it memorized.  We have picked up on the way that he bites/sucks on his bottom lip.  And that he raised his eyebrows when he is looking at people as if to say, " Can I help you?".  (I like to think that he is actually saying, " You're not my mom or dad, but I guess you can hang out with me until they get here.":)) 

I'll leave you with a picture of his beautiful brown almond shaped eyes, because they are one of our favorite things about him...along with his thick curls...and his perfect pouty lips...and his precious little nose...and his chubby little wrists...you get the idea.:)

Tate is so beautiful, it's almost ridiculous! I stare at my ultrasound photos the same way you stare at his pictures. Just waiting until you get to see that perfect little face in person!
