Some of you maybe wondering if the earthquake in China was anywhere near where Josh is from. The epicenter was about 200 miles from Chongqing. The city that Josh's orphanage is in, Yunyang, had some damage. According to our adoption agency, Josh's orphanage had some structural damage, but no one was injured. Please continue to send prayers. If you would like to make a donation to help the children in the orphanages you can go to Great Wall Adoption Agency's website. They have set up a fund.
Now to what everyone waits for - the pictures!
Every kids needs to have the messy spaghetti picture.
When we went up to my sister's for Marianna's birthday, Marianna was riding her Gator when we arrived. Josh hopped on. He quickly learned to hold on and Marianna put her arm around him to keep him from falling off. It was to cute watching them.
Now we're to the teeth. For the past four days Josh has been fussy, not sleeping well, not eating well, very clingy, and running temps of 101.5. He was in visible pain and would sometimes scream when he did eat something. We finally had to hold him down (which went over well - NOT) and look in his mouth to see if one of his growing teeth was infected or something. What we found was a canker on the roof of his mouth in the back so every time he swallowed he would tweak it. POOR GUY!! No wonder eating was no fun. Finally, on Thursday evening he started to eat a little something. Friday he was feeling even better. He is not quite himself yet, but is almost there. In this picture, Josh was struggling to sleep for his nap but he was quite comfy on Matt's chest.
