Oh wow.
We've got a live-wire on our hands!

This lil' fella is full of energy,
a huge eater, and stubborn.
Very stubborn.

Oh goodie.
That's okay...I'm broken in with that type.

Here are the long awaited pics...

First meeting!

How sweet is this?
I think they look alike!

Rice Krispy Treat!

Can't you just see the energy in his eyes?
Oh, boy.

Skyping is working GREAT.

He took the mic away from K-man and started singing me
a lovely Chinese ditty.
It was so adorable.

He readily says,
"I love Baba"
"I love Mama"
"I love Dong Ji!"
(His Chinese name)

And at one point during our conversation,
K-man said,
"He's buckled himself in his stroller and is happy with that...
I gotta use this time to run to bathroom!"

Sooooo funny!

Ok, I really gotta get my kiddos started on some schoolwork.
I'll report back later when I have time.

Eat your Wheaties, mama!

Joanne Reddell said...

And, yes, you are broken in thanks to Miss Lucy-bug!! Keep those updates coming!! Loving them!!

He really is a handsome boy, Lori. I know your heart wants to be there too, so I'm so grateful the Skype-ing is going so well! What a fabulous journey!!!

Ann Marie said...

So thrilled for your family!

Holly said...

Joy said...

He is so cute! Already he reminds me of (and sounds just like) Zane. :-)


Colleen said...

He is so precious! What a cutie!
K-man looks very happy with him! You are blessed!

Janet and Kevin said...

Oh wow! He is so cute! And we are praying hard for K-man to have enough energy for the entire trip with two new boys! :) He will probably come home and sleep well for a long time - your husband, that is! :)

Kelly Marriott said...

Beautiful boy! I love your husband - what a blessing!

Hopefully K-man will have him broken in before they have to travel home. What a journey that could be!

Adrian Roberta said...

Love it!!! Your own personal 3ft tall diet (that's how I see it) Who needs to diet when you have a busy son!!!

Freedom Hollow Farmgirl said...

So awesome to see answered prayer. Your little man is finally with his forever baba! He is beautiful....hmmmm, handsome, that's a much better way to describe your little sturdy guy.

Congrats mama!

Nicole A. said...

That boy is sooo cute! (You'd better be resting up now while you can!) You must be so happy! And you must be so proud to see your hubby over there, taking care of everything and bringing home the boys. What a good guy!

All the best,
Nicole A., now in LA

Elissa said...

LOVING these pics!! Congrats, Mama!!

On a side note, is it bad that I'm praying God doesn't nudge us toward copying you this time? I have enough "live ones" already (ok, just 1, but that's enough for this lazy mama.) :)

Congrats again, and keep up the posts to keep your stalkers happy :)

Jerry and Christy said...

He is so adorable. I hope you get a video of him singing the Chinese ditty. It will be a treasured memory. Congratulations on being a Mama again.

Anita said...

LORI!!! He's here, he's here and all boy and busy like Kaleb!! :) I showed Kaleb his pic this morning and he's shaking his head yes to Dong Ji!! :) LOVE IT! to eat some breakfast (yes at 11:30..we all just got up...this jetlag is killing us) and I'll check back again later. HUGS!

Anita said...

OH, OH, OH and before I forget, we were at the exact spot with Kaleb AND we have the EXACT same colored puppy too!! AAHHH!!!

Donna said...

What a handsome boy!!! So wonderful to see him with his daddy!!! (we met our Andrew in that same room 5 months ago!)
Thanks so much for the updates!

Tina said...

He's so adorable! Congratulations!

David and Janet Hurley said...

How precious--love the 1st one-serious look. I recognize those sofa's=Avery's adoption in 2007.
Glad everything is happy now, I will keep praying=).

Kim K. said...

I'm just so happy for your family. Your son is going to be great material for your blog (hee hee).

Wife of the Pres. said...

OK, well my bloggy break has left me out of the loop!

I am glad Kristy posted at adoptolder!!!

HE IS ADORABLE!!! And they do look alike.

BTW, you used your DH's name in the post below (trying to not be too specific here). Not sure if you wanted to since you usually use nickname. If you don't care, disregard my worries!

I can't wait until you post the update on Metcha #2!!! And your DH is amazing to go this alone! W.O.W. It took The Prez and I both to control our big buy, but then again you all are pros at this!!!

CONGRATS on your new little guy!!!

P.S. the word verification below is "blese" I'd say "BLESE" is right even if Mr. Word Verifier spelled it wrong!!!

Tony and Rett said...

Holy cow! He's amazing!

But, Mama, you better start preparing Lucy now. That girl is going to get a run for her money!

The Thomasson's said...

Oh my goodness! Seriously, what a cutie!! He is gonna keep you smiling!

Shonni said...

I am so happy for you Lori! He is adorable!!

Adeye said...

Aaahhhhh....he is just absolutely PRECIOUS!!!!!!! I think he's gonna fit right in :):):):)

Keep the pics coming, friend.

TOTALLY rejoicing with you.

Great things the Lord has done.

Mrs. Hutch said...

Oh my! He is SO handsome!!

Mandi said...

I'm with Connie, "eat your wheaties." He looks like he is going to fit in just fine with his big brothers. He may actually teach them a thing or two.

He is definitely a handsome little guy. Can't wait to see how he reacts in a few days to an older brother.


learningtogether said...

He's going to be a hoot at any future Zh reunions! I think he'll get along fine with a couple of our Cdn livewires. Hehe

Tracey and Chuck said...

Absolutely precious!!!!

Jean said...

Love the pics!! Wow- is he a cutey!! Frail and malnourished he is not! Sturdy and busy he is!!

He will undoubtedly provide you with many hysterical posts in the future!! I'm gonna like this!

Sally-Girl! said...

Darn Jean took my words, no wonder the two of us are such good friends...speaking one another's words, finishing each other's sentences!!!

He could blow Bryson over with a one whistle!!! And Bryson is 7!!

Love the photos! Keep them coming!!!

He is cute!!! Such a boy!!!

Kim said...

What an adorable little guy! I know you can hardly wait to hug that sweetness... boys are so much fun! Hope you have a good pair of running shoes!

Tracy said...

I love that last picture! He so very cute, and he looks like he's fully spirited!! I think you better get your seatbelt on cuz I think your going to be in for one heck of a ride. Hee, Hee.
Maybe I missed it along the way, but when does your hubby get to meet your oldest son?

Reid, Dawn, Jilli, & Dru! said...

Yea!!! So happy for you :) He is adorable!!

Faye Verquer said...

When does he get your other little man?? You best be resting up to keep up with that little man...Watch out are about to meet your match!!!

Gretchen said...

Oh Lori!!!!!


What a handsome young man you have there. Love the pics! Keep em coming!!

Charissa said...

Oh YAY!!!!! I am sooooo excited for you! He is a doll! Perhaps that energy he has now is due to some overstimulation from his new circumstances and he'll calm right down once he is home and settled. It can happen...right? :-) I know you are on cloud 9!! Just thrilled for all of you! Can't wait to see the next big meeting! When is Kelly meeting Elijah? Such an exciting time!

Melissa said...
