The kids have grown a lot since we've gotten here. I'm actually finding they need some bigger sizes of clothes already. I'm making do for the most part since it's not like we'll need many summer clothes in Fairbanks. But, back to my subject.
I wanted to do a little update on Ephraim so I don't forget where he's at right now. When we left Washington, he was doing very little real communicating. He seemed like a baby still, not comprehending a lot of what we wanted from him, not speaking much beyond Mama and Dada. In the last 2 months, he has changed. He's a little less tempermental and more willing to be patient. He still does a lot of nonsense talk. At least it's nonsense to us. He know exactly what he's saying since he'll repeat it over and over until you act like you understand. He still loves Thomas the Tank Engine, though Optimus Prime is becoming a big favorite too.
The kids just adore him. So do we. He is such a blessing to have around us. A dose of joy when our situation occasionally weighs on us. How can you not laugh at this face? He's too intense for his own good.
