Galina, Annalyn, and Rachel. I took this picture after getting individual pics of them to update the side of the blog.
Nolan, Oliver, Julia and Adam. When I first tried to get this picture Nolan was sitting off to the side. Julia grabbed him and pulled him over to her to get this picture.
Nolan loves notebooks and paper. He enjoys drawing with markers. Oliver loves his walker. He especially loves when Dennis or Jonny push him around the house.
Here is Oliver in his crib. Our sweet friends set up in our room when we were in Ukraine.
Nolan and Alex both slept in this morning so I didn't make them take a nap. I had them rest here in the living room for 1/2 hour.
Rest time turned into playtime with Alex giving Nolan moose kisses. That was fine and dandy but toward the evening Nolan had a little meltdown. He is definitely having a nap tomorrow.
Jonny drew this. I don't quite understand...
Anna kissing Oliver. His blue eyes are gorgeous aren't they?
Julia and Oliver
Oliver lights up all of our lives with his baby cuteness.
Today Aunt Tanya and my Mom came to visit. I took this picture right in the middle of Oliver yawning.
A few nights ago while I was making dinner I pushed the stool up to the kitchen island for Nolan to stand on and watch. Tonight he got on the stool by himself to watch. He also put the pasta in his mouth like this all by himself. What a cute imagination.
Next week Alex is having his big surgery. After his appendicostomy he will spend one night in the hospital. I am so hopeful for what this surgery will do for him. Next week is a big step toward his future independence.
