Things are looking up here

Sorry it's been so long since posting. Its just that so much happens every day that when I finally have time to post I am overwhelmed. Anteneh is doing really really well. He hasn't thrown a fit since Sunday!!! Just a few little early morning pouts about stupid things like not being able to wear soccer shoes to camp but typical stuff for kids his age. He started day camp at addis' school and he loves it. He gets so excited about going and gets so worn out it's better for us that he isn't just bored sitting around. He is getting more comfortable around us, and we are really starting to actually have fun as a family. We also got a puppy because Anteneh had to leave his childhood dog Jack back in Ethiopia. The new Jack is about 8 weeks old, a pain in the you know what. He came to us pretty much house broken but now just likes to go on the floor for fun. He eats EVERYTHING in sight but oh well, he'll grow out of it. His mom was a great pyrenees (sp?) and i think his daddy was a german shepherd or something. He and addis are hilarious together. She likes to beat the crap out of him and pull his tail, and he just takes it. okay so we have some pictures. Mostly of my walking little angel in her adoooorable texas tech shirt. We went to the mall today and got anteneh his first pair of abercrombie jeans, he was apprehensive then tried them on and was like oh yeah i look good. and he did! So so cute. He is so skinny with the cutest little butt!! I will take a picture of him in his new clothes later but he is watching Mortal Combat right now and can't be bothered. Please excuse the mess, snot, scratches, slobber etc.
