Night visions

My dear mother, Nana, sent Igor an early Christmas gift- children's night vision goggles. My son LOVES his new goggles. We tested them out in the closets yesterday afternoon. Igor thought they were very cool.

Imagine my surprise at Odark:30 - Igor walked into our bedroom with his night vision goggles on saying, "Mom, I can see you!" Once I woke up enough to realize what was happening I said, "Igor that's awesome. Now please, you and your night vision goggles must go back to bed. See you in the morning." Tonight I am taking the goggles out of his room after he falls asleep!

On the adoption front, it finally feels as though Henry will be coming home. I think we've been living in some weird alternative universe where we knew that we were adopting a child but it did not feel real. We have returned to this universe and the adoption feels VERY real now. We FINALLY purchased Henry a winter wardrobe. All he needs is a winter coat, shoes, mittens and we'll be done!

We received some more pictures of Henry from families who were in Ethiopia last week! He is such a cute little boy! I cannot wait to show you his picture.

OOooohh! Those goggles are SO COOL! What a great gift!

It's such a strange place when it starts to feel real. I think I thought it was real so many times, then went back into limbo...anyway, once I finally held A I still wasn't quite sure it was real! ;)

I had never heard of kids' night vision goggles. Those are SOOO cool! I feel like a whole new world is opening up to me. One that doesn't include pink sequins and purple ruffles! I can't wait!!!

Thats's funny-- I have a child who was just talking about those goggles! How do they know about these things?? I'm glad adoption feels real to you now-- someday I hope if feels real to me, too :)
