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.

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 his bare feet!

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