Little Lizard

There were comments about "Little Lizard" from the last post so I thought I would share where this nickname originated. A couple of weeks ago Ethan was talking to the baby and showing his daddy where the baby is right now. I was at the computer so I asked him if he wanted to see what it looked like. Of course he did. I found a picture that had been drawn and it looked like a baby and Ethan quickly recognized it as such. When I scrolled down the page there was a 3D image of a baby at the same stage. Ethan's face lit up and he said, "Oh! It's a little lizard!" Since Ronnie and I hadn't thought of a name for this one we decided that Ethan's name would work well enough.
This is the picture that started it all...

We passed!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything. It's just that not that much happens when you're sitting at home with a two-year-old everyday. Ethan and I are enjoying our summer together...we've been busy packing and playing with his friend Hailey. Anyways, the reason I'm posting today is that we had the final inspection on the house today and it PASSED!! Maybe it won't be much longer before we get to move in! I'll be back Monday, if not before, with an update on the little lizard (Ethan's name for the new baby) after my doctor's appointment.

Exciting News!

I have been waiting to post this for a couple of weeks now. I just needed to wait for the right time.

So here goes...
Ronnie, Ethan and I will be welcoming a new little one to our family in January!

We are very excited and nervous, but we know that God will help us just as he has since Ethan arrived. At the first doctor's appointment we had an ultrasound and were able to see the little one and then today we were able to hear the heart. A wonderful sound at 170 beats per minute. Please pray for our family...we'll be needing it!

Day 9 --- Homeward Bound!

Today we will be heading back to good ole North Carolina! Our flight doesn't leave until early afternoon so I imagine we'll pack, eat breakfast and head to the airport to wait. We should be arriving shortly after midnight tonight! Can't wait to see my boys! How I have missed them!

I'm sure I'll be on here posting pictures soon!!!

Day 8

Our last full day in the tropics! We travel to the city of Sarchí, an artisan hot spot. While there we will visit markets and I hope to show the kids the art of bargaining for real...they thought I was crazy when we did it in class! They'll figure it out or they'll pay way too much for what they want!

Tonight we stay at the Grand Hotel Costa Rica. It seems pretty majestic to me! We will have some free time this evening.
