4 Months Home!!!

Oh wow, 4 months. I don't even know where to start. This boy is amazing! I am so thankful for the nannies at his orphanage, because it's clear he was well taken care of.

He is SO smart. He is using signs regularly, and is doing great at trying to talk. He loves to watch Frozen with the girls, and he even pretends to sing. He loves to dance. He loves loud music. He loves his family and we love him! He's getting much more stable on his feet, and is starting to crawl more often instead of butt scooting. His IEP evaluation is at the end of this month.

We started a messy art class last week at the community center, and he loved it.

Sunday we celebrated his birthday (a week early) at Organ Stop Pizza. It was a party for Lily and him, and we had a BLAST! So many people showed up to celebrate our amazing kids. We are so blessed.

A candle for each birthday he spent in the orphanage, and his #4 for this birthday!!

Let me tell you, there is not much that is more emotional than planning and throwing a party for a former orphan. Lily was SO excited to share her party with her new brother, and I almost cried about 10 times. 

You can adopt from the same place Maks is from! These sweet kids are in the same region! It is such a great place, and much cheaper than a lot of regions. You will be blessed, I know it!



  1. Aw. Happy tears for you and your family! Too much cuteness for one family!

  2. Maks looks sooooo happy! I love it. :)

  3. Hooray! So glad he is doing well!

  4. Such a beautiful birthday party! Happy 4th year!
