Ezra had his ear surgery for tubes and adenoids 1 week ago today. He does seem to be hearing slightly better and pronouncing his words better as well. Only time will tell if he needs more surgeries and how much hearing he will ever regain. Below are pics of my little trooper in surgery recovery. The worst part for him was wearing a "dress", or hospital gown. He was so embarrassed. I know if it had been Addai he would have happily pranced down the hall showing off his backside!
The boys have not only mastered bikeriding but they are also now jumping ramps, thanks to Grammie! They are through and through boys. I was raised with a sister and just never realized how different boys are. You would think after being married to Ryan for almost 8 years I would have gotten a clue, a little slow on the draw I guess.
It's hard to believe but the boys will be six in just over 1 month. The time really flies but we are so enjoying being parents to these 2 cuties!

Ezra's ears are so much better and we are so thankful that they have recovered so well. We return to the doctor on Friday to see if both infections have cleared up.
We are truly amazed with the progress the boys have made in this short month home. They are speaking more clear "American" english, eating American food with more ease, playing like real brothers, and just basically blending right in. Ryan and I are also equally amazed with our new Liberian English prowess. We had watched a video online about Liberian rap prior to leaving for Liberia. We couldn't even believe at the time that the boys that were singing were speaking any form of English. We re-watched the same video today and caught almost every single word. It is just unreal how your mind and your ears adapt and we find ourselves speaking to the boys more in Liberian English at times than in American English!
I always have to include at least one comical kid story, so here goes. The boys take a nap everyday anywhere from 1 to 2 hours long (jealous anyone?!). Well today after about 40 mins I heard something in their room. Ryan was walking past right then so I asked him to peek in on them. He stood at the door for a few minutes and gave a slight signal with his head. Come to find out Addai had been caught in the act! He had climbed the ladder to Ezra's bed and had Ezra's Yertle the Turtle midswing towards Ezra's head! That little booger. Just as Papa opened the door Addai looked back and Ezra was saved from Yertle! Back to bed he went and Ryan came away from the door barely able to suppress full out laughter!
Ryan and I still can't belive how blessed we are by these children. Hope you also get a good chuckle from their many antics!
In Christ's Love,
