Time for laughter

With so much stress and anxiety surrounding Guatemalan adoptions right now, we REALLY need to spread some joy and laughter! Eli has already blessed us with so much happiness and our recent visit trip was a reminder of why we will wait as long as it takes to bring him home. I don't think the smiles ever left our faces while we were with our little pea! Despite the anxiety we feel right now, our recent time with Eli renewed our strength to keep holding on and to focus on what an amazing journey this has been.

So, while we wait for an update from the powers that be on the status of current cases, let's have some fun! I tag ALL of my blogger friends to share some funny moments with your little one or other family members or your pets or whatever. Just give us a reason to smile and laugh! I look forward to much laughter to lighten the mood right now!!

I will go first....This video was taken after a long day "in the city." Eli was just kickin' back, scratchin' his belly, and enjoyin' a bottle. It doesn't get any better than this!! We just laughed and laughed!

Ohmygosh! That was hilarious and too darn cute! He's got the whole "laid back little man" thing down, doesn't he? Thanks for the cheer!

Funny... I just wrote a post about all the ways we have laughed during this process in the last year. We are always on the same page!

I will try to contribute to the laughter movement in the next day or two... great idea! Thanks for lifting us up!!

LOL What a cute video! LOVE IT!
Thank you for the nice comment tonight. I am starting to feel less panic and more perspective. Hey my post was a downer I did not follow your rules at all. :) Alex does tons of cute and funny things. I will try to put something good on tomorrow.

I'll have to send Jackson over to your house-he is always full of funny times! His new thing is that he wants to make sure we are happy-so he'll say, "Are you happy mommy?" I'll say, "yes" and then he will say, "smile", so I will smile-then he'll say, "let me see your teeth." I guess a smile isn't a smile unless you can see the teeth! Seeing sweet little Eli brought us LOTS of smiles full of teeth!!

It's hard waiting through PGN. I was in for about 100 days with each of my two adoptions. Hang in there. I know it's a bit more stressful than usual at the moment, but I'm hoping you get that wonderful OUT call soon!
