Fun at Nonnie's

Nonnie lets us play with her stuff
There are lots of animals in the moutains by Nonnie's house

It's a really long and boring ride to Nonnie's

Getting some homework done, even on vacation

Trick or Treat

It's already been six months!

We meet our baby boy on April 13th. So six months ago we were in China. At a tea shop in this picture. There weren't many smiles back then. He was unsure, scared and easily over stimulated.

He is now 5 pounds heavier

Over an inch taller

Loves his big brother

And is thriving in his new family

Thank you God for trusting us with this precious little soul

Learning lots of new stuff

Christian is doing great! He is learning so many new words. He loves to "mow" the grass and sing with his abc's lawn mower. He loves to swing, play with trains and ride his bike. He is also, along with his brother, taking dancing lessons from Daddy. You will be impressed with how much he and Jacob have already learned. See below ;)

My Precious Boys

First Day of School

Today was Jacob's first day of school. He was pretty nervous (the first time mom has ever seen this emotion) every time we talked about big boy school. Today though, he was completely relaxed and excited about his new adventure.

Christian is adjusting very well. He still has his moments, but they are getting more rare, thank goodness. He is beginning to say more words too. Today he told Jacob, "wuv u". He is so cute.

Enjoy these pictures of our special day.

Sit n Spin

Three months ago today.....

We returned home from China with our precious little boy. So much has changed since then, it is amazing what love and trust can do for a child. We no longer have that little boy with such fear in his eyes (his whole body, really). He no longer has muscle definition in his abdomen from crying so violently many hours during the day. You can no longer see his little ribs from the front and back of his body. His skin is no longer dry itchy and more like an alligator than a baby.

Christian is now sweet, loving and full of joy. He is such a blessing to our family. Jacob tells me every day how much he loves his baby brother. It's hard to remember the time without our sweet little Christian.

Our first moments together

First week home

Last weekend with his Nannie, Parrain and baby Aydin

Where has the time gone?

We have been a very busy family..below are some highlights

  • Mom got a new job (thank God)
  • Dad passed his big test and is now a certified electrician
  • Jacob is getting ready for "big boy" school (Pre-K)
  • Christian took his first road trip and met his Nonnie over the 4th of July holiday
  • Christian is finally sleeping all night (whew, mom is too old to not get a good night's sleep)
  • Christian is saying a new word almost every day. Today's word was cookie!
  • Some other words he has learned are brother, yeah, no no, Christian, ba ba, mamma, daddy and Jacob
  • Christian walked on grass today....in his bare feet!

We are having so much fun that we forget to post. Enjoy some pictures from the last month.

Christian Andrew, Child of God

Christian was baptized on Saturday. It was absolutely beautiful. Thank you Father Keith for your service to God's people and for making the baptism of our precious boy so touching. We will teach Christian the beautiful prayer to St Andrew you read.

Enjoy the pictures of our special day.
