Big Amazing This and That......

Playing in water.
Aunt Robin getting some loving from her nephews.

Grandma Di wrestling with her boys.

Caius sitting up.

The water is so funny!

Asher eating the flower he had picked for me.

Caius is pushing to sit!!!! and then he sits and sits and sits all by himself! I'm so proud! He is also eating a whole thing of baby food! Yippee! Plus he has gained over a pound last month. Chunker!

Bohdan has gained two pounds since he has been home! He is also mister 'about town'. He has finally ventured off the living room rug and goes all around the house. He will army crawl to the front door when it is open. Funny thing is though that he gets stuck on the mat because he doesn't like the way it feels on his skin.

Yuri hasn't gained any weight I don't think but he is doing better over all. His manic episodes aren't as frequent but they are still around. He is seeking out attention. He still doesn't like to be held but he does like to hold your hand. He is also signing 'more'! I'm super proud!! He has an MRI scheduled for today. I was going to add that he hasn't thrown up in over a week but then yesterday we were on our way to a drive through safari with our friends from NM and while we were waiting in line to get in, He threw up all over the car. :o( Needless to say we didn't get to go to the safari. Instead we went home and my friend cleaned the car. Happy spring break! Thank the Lord for fabulous friends who give up their spring break to clean puke!

Asher is awesome and wrestles with the boys. This is a good thing with Yuri because Yuri overall likes it however with the little guys it doesn't go over so well. We keep having to tell him 'gentle!' What a 2.5 year old! This is a great age.

Anyway, gotta run. My harddrive crashed and I just got my computer back. Still trying to load all my programs and such. Can I just say YUCK!!!

    I think I posted once before that your witness was a major factor leading to our desire to adopt through RR! Our blog will be ready to go this Saturday (after we announce to our parents)...

    Thanks for helping to lead us to our little guy!!

  6. So happy to hear an update!!

    Can you tell me where you got the ball that you took when you got the boys? Any other ideas about what to bring? We are adopting Nastya and Moira. They are 2 and 18 months.

    Thank you!
