Favorite Thing In America...

Eli says that the thing he loves most about America is (drum roll)...the FOOD! Can you believe it?! He ranks among his favorites:

1. Hamburgers!(let's not forget he hated these at first)
2. Fish (actually, it was a tortilla crusted tilapia from Schwans)
3. Peanut Butter and Jelly (good ole' PB&J!)
4. Indian Food (we do this a lot)
5. Tortillas (or, American injera, as we call it)

Today at Open Gym, he added to his list, a perfect back-flip on the tramp and a front handspring on the floor!

We had a lovely "Welcome" shower from our dear friends. We are very blessed. The story of adoption always brings tears. I love our friends who are so sweet and supportive of this little boy. We wanted to take a trip to California to meet grandma and grandpa, but its too early. I also need back surgery so I can keep up with this active little guy. It looks like grandma and grandpa may be coming here instead to meet our guy!


  1. If you go to California thats so close to Oregon.. Hint hint. Lol, we should get together! I have air miles;) Biruktawit was excited that Eli likes peanut butter, she just found out she likes peanut butter sandwiches too. And she decided she can eat hamburgers now since she knows Eli eats them!

  2. Sounds like you have a budding gymnist :)
