Ephraim has learned to play peek-a-boo, and it's so cute! He'll squint his eyes and cover up a bit of his face with his tiny, carry-around blankie when we say, "Where's Ephraim?" Then he rips off the blankie, pops open his eyes, and gives us a wide gummy grin when we yell, "Pea Pie!"
I can't go to the grocery store without having a half a dozen people making all over Ephraim. He'll act shy, ducking his head down into my chest and closing his eyes to "hide". Then he'll turn his head to the side and peek at them out of one squinted eye. Of course, that makes everyone laugh, so Ephraim does it all the time now!
I'm a work-at-home mom of thirteen children ranging in age from twenty-six years old to five months old. Eight are home grown and five were adopted internationally (Russia, Guatemala, Vietnam and Ethiopia). We live on an 85-acre farm, and we have home schooled since 1986. My husband is a family physician in solo practice. I manage his practice and file the insurance claims.
