I’m a little behind on getting the posts up these days.  Sorry!

Andy is now 21 months old.  It’s hard to believe that he is almost 2!  He is talking a lot more now that he has a chance to speak without Eden talking over him.  He is putting several words together and does a good job telling us when he needs something.

Andy has discovered Thomas and has fallen in love with trains.  We borrowed some Thomas DVDs for the trip to Pittsburgh for Thanksgiving and he loved watching them.  He still likes cars and trucks and drives his little cars all around the house.  He is beginning to identify different kinds of vehicles like firetrucks, dump trucks, etc. which is very funny.

He has done a great job adjusting to Sunday school.  I was a bit nervous about dropping him off, but he has been fine every time.  He plays with the vehicles in class and goes in without any problems.  Andy is also attending a ‘Mom’s Day Out’ childcare once a week at Covenant.

Andy really misses Ben and Eden and talks about them a lot.  He’s pretty good about skyping with them although he doesn’t always like to stay in front of the camera.  He also talks about his friends in Kenya, and occasionally uses his Swahili words.  Our first day back in the US, I took Andy to Meijer while Ben had a meeting at work.  I had to go to the bathroom and parked Andy in the cart outside of my stall.  An African American woman walked into the bathroom and Andy immediately yelled, “Jambo!” to her.
