The many faces of Seth!

"Ya, so what? So I drool a little from time to time. What's it to you? I'm only 2-years-old and it is perfectly normal for children my age to drool. Besides, I'm cute no matter what I'm doing!"

"Ya, I'm a little stinker and proud of it. I going to give my mommy and daddy a run for their money! They think I'm pretty darn cute, but I got LOTS of personality to go along with ALL my cuteness. Just wait until I can show them all I got!"

"Seriously people, I didn't do it. I didn't do anything, I swear. Would this face lie? Come on now, does this look like the face of someone who could EVER do anything wrong?"

"Really? You're going to look at all my cuteness and just leave, just like that - without even one little comment - Do you really want me to sit here all day waiting for you?"

A very special thank you to Alicia and Sharon for taking time out in Ethiopia with their own sons to spend a little time with mine! They were able to capture some very special pictures+ and provide us with comfort about how well he is doing and being cared for. This gift they gave us is more valuable than gold - I will forever be grateful.

Great pictures! He looks like a big boy- his shape and build really reminds me of Leul. He looks like such a character!

So sweet, wishing the Visa gets to you soon so you can cuddle him in person. He definetly will be melting alot of hearts.

I keep wanting to ask you where you got the T-shirts, with the Africa country on them and with the wording. They are so gorgeous, they are the ones Rana has for Ade. I would love to purchase them.
