Got Up Early

Ok, since Ethan insists upon waking up around 6am each morning, I finally did it! I went to bed at 9:30 last night. Woke up at 1 when Seth was crying. Then, went back to sleep. Woke up with Aaron at 5:30. Got up, tiptoed into the kitchen and cooked breakfast for us as quietly as possible, and guess who slept until almost 7am. The little stinker!

Oh well, it was great to get up and eat breakfast with Aaron, and I need to get up early and get on this schedule so we can start school when the girls get back from camp.

Now, we don't normally have a "get up" time when we do school. Just when everyone gets up we start. Or whoever is up early, I might get them started on their part, just to get done. But I think this year, we will have to stick more to a schedule. Getting as much done as we can in the morning while the boys are awake, then finishing during naptime.

Ethan has come so far since we picked him up 4 weeks ago. When we got him in ET, he was unwilling/unable to put weight on his legs. He kicked all the time, but when you would try to stand him up in your lap, his legs just collapsed. Well, within a week, he was putting weight on his legs. Also, he was unable to sit up, just fell right over (he was 6 months) Well, now he has been sitting up for a few weeks and just this week has learned to go from lying on his belly to a sitting position. Getting back down to a lying position most of the time involves just falling over on his head. Thankfully, he has a hard head.

  1. Hello! My name is Sara-Beth and I just saw your blog on the CCI site. We are another CCI family and I thought it was fun that our family dynamics are so similar! We have three daughters here at home and are waiting to bring home our two baby boys from Ethiopia. I will definitely be enjoying your blog and watching your transition to life with 5 kiddos while we wait for ours. :)
    Blessings on your beautiful family!
