My Malachi Fix

I got a Malachi fix today!!! A family that traveled a couple weeks ago were able to get me some pictures today! We made a little "care package" for him also that they so graciously packed into their already tight suitcase for us. It was hard to decide what to send my baby that lives across the ocean ... but we came up with a few things. We sent an outfit that is just for him. (They share all their clothes, toys, and blankets. So I thought I'd send him something that was just HIS.) It had guitars and drums all over it, since he is his fathers son. (However, from the pictures we got, I'm thinking I should have gone with the "love of basketball" theme as opposed to the "love of music" theme that ARE his daddy. Read on ... ) We sent a little stuffed giraffe rattle, a hat, some booties, and a blanket given by his little friend here in the US - Noah. My personal favorite though, was a teething picture book. It's a book that he can munch away on while viewing pictures we placed in it. I loaded it up with pictures of us - his new family. The pictures I received of him with this book are priceless to me. I'm DYING to post all our pictures of him. But alas, I cannot ... still.

One other thing that Aaron and I couldn't get enough of were his HUGE hands. Seriously folks ... huge. (Thus, my above reference to going with the "love of basketball". Aaron is already calling talent scouts on his behalf.) So, even though I can't post pictures of Malachi, I think I came up with something that I could post. Here is all I can "show" you of our little guy. :)

so beautiful! I love it! how old is he now? isn't he little still??? those hands are GIANT. they look bigger than elias's hands! crazy. he's probablly gonna be a sweet piano player and a sweet basketball player. JUST LIKE AARON. how perfect is that??? :) now watch, he will be like a champion domino stacker or hairdresser or something. I'm just sayin'. hee hee hee. ohhhhhhh maybe a potter. that would be cool. or maybe he will just be really great at holding babies or something. God gave him those hands for some reason. won't it be great to see what? I can't wait.
