We did go to McDon@lds tonight, and you would think it was the best thing that could ever possibly happen. Ty would look at us then look at his french fry and just giggle. Then he would show me my french fries and try to tell me to eat. I gave him some ketchup and his eyes about popped out of his head.We walked over to a large outdoor mall and anytime he saw stairs or escalators he would jump into our arms and hold on for dear life, but he never stopped smiling ear to ear. Then this evening we were walking in an outdoor pedestrian market, a few times Marc was walking ahead holding his hand, Kobi and I were right behind... he would look back to check we were still there and smile so big I thought he was going to burst...then he would look up at Marc and just beam.
Oh,, he also started telling our guide that he had older brothers, and sisters... she looked at us and said, " I think he was in foster care" I told her that his paperwork said that he had been in the orphanage since he was one day old. She kept asking him questions and then realized that he was talking on and on about our family from the photos we had sent and the ones that we had brought for him. He did get a bit nervous at bedtime. I am sure he normally has a routine of which I have no idea. He had gone to bed with a comb after bath time.. I laid down with him and he just kept combing my hair which was surely a ploy not to go to bed, and yes it totally worked. He is a charmer. He is super busy and super excited. We haven't been able to pull out many of the fun things we brought for him as it seems like he would surely pop with excitement. He is a major copy cat, already copying some of our English words. He is going to keep me extra busy... I am in t.r.o.u.b.l.e.! and 100% head over healsTomorrow we go to the orphanage, we are driving back from the Civil affairs office( over two and a half hours) with the director and two nannies from the orphanage, then we will go to lunch with them. I always hate the anticipation of this day. I am anxious of how it will all play out. I know it will be a hard day, but I know for sure that I won't regret a second of the memories we make.
