They're there and have Anteneh!

Quick update. Went something like this....
"Flight was awful"....hmmm....Addis, I bet. :) Grace did mention that Addis is feeling a little better.
"Anteneh is really sweet and loves Addis" awesome!
"He (Anteneh) has a soft, little voice"....good thing....maybe it will even things out with Addis being so, ahem, vocal.
That's about all. She said that all the Hope kids look great and I know that is a huge sigh of relief to all the waiting parents. Grace had to run....they were off to "play with Anteneh."......awwww.....

No update yet, but Hello!

Okay,'re in for a real treat for the next few days. I am Rebecca, a fellow Hopie, and I am the "someone" that is going to be updating the Pruitt blog.
I haven't heard anything from the Pruitt gals yet....I'm sure they're still up in the air. I've spent the day thinking alot about them. Alternating between being really nervous for them and laughing, thinking about Mir and Grace trying to keep Miss Addis busy on that plane. Eek!!
I have to say that I am so happy for all of them. Grace, for getting a son. Miranda, a little brother. Addis, a big brother. Most of all, Anteneh for getting the 3 of them. I mean, can you in the same house as those three ladies?!?! Lord have mercy!!
Speaking of Ateneh....what will he think of all of this? What will he do with his life? Find the cure for cancer? Adopt 100 little Ethiopians? What? I know that it will be something great, something extraordinary. I've been there. I've met him. I've looked into his eyes and seen that he was destined for greatness. There is something about him that is truly special. Everyone that has met him has said the exact same thing.
Well, I will sign off now for the Pruitt 3, soon to be 4!!
As soon as I hear something, I will post......go Pruitt's!!!!

Aww a rare moment of peace and quiet

This past week Addis has been... NAUGHTY. We had to leave dinner early yesterday because she was throwing such a hissy, on Monday she made her self throw up at lunch because she wasn't getting enough attention, she has been hitting and punching, sleeping 4 hours a night, just all over being not a very sweet girl. BUT I did get this super cute picture of her cuddling her doll, well she was sleeping and I put the doll there but whatever I love it. Notice the pillow, that is her new thing.

A weekend of Illness

Poor miss addis. She started "school" aka daycare for half days last week because she was just way too bored to spend all day here at home. And she loves it, she is in a really small class, with all kids over a year old because she is so advanced. But because she is a paci-thief, she caught some super strong crazy virus on Thursday. She was a little snotty on thursday night and kinda out of it on Friday but by Friday night she was so so congested and feverish it was horrible. She slept like 2 hours. She went to the doctor on Saturday, and had a horrible ear and sinus infection. We just hung out here all day and then that night her fever went up to 104.5!!! I was so scared, and at like 3 it finally broke and she slept until 6. Poor mom, I got to take naps and she didn't at all! She is back to normal now, just in time to go to Ethiopia, omg in a week we will be on a plane to Dulles, then a few more hours and on a 15 hour flight with the queen of mean Addis Fitsum Tesfaye. Im scared!

Remember that really really cute announcement I posted about 3 months ago of Addis all naked and wrapped up in a scarf? Well we finally went and got them, just in time to get Teneh's done!! I am really trying to motivate myself to send them out before we leave to go to Ethiopia. If you want one, and want to help me, then please email my mom at with your address. THANKS!!

no no no no no

Addis' new favorite phrase is no no no no. She says this when she is doing something naughty and gets told no or when she is pointing to someone's nose. She also says uh-oh, ball, mama, addis, hi, hey. Any time she sees anything really cute (baby or animal) she goes "oooooh" I guess I am always oohing and ahhing over her so she has mastered her mimicking. She knows when things are hot and says oouch hot. I am going to try to get some video of her new crab walk, "snapping", talking, and overall cuteness!!
