Good Stuff

One night after dinner, Phillip put some whipped cream on Max's highchair. Max loved it!
As of late we have been up to much of the same. Finding our "new normal". Max and Ivanna continue to adjust just fine. Both are gaining weight and seem to be content in their home. Max knows right where his favorite toys are (sing-a-ma-jigs). Ivanna is scooting EVERYWHERE in her little walker. She can even scoot up to the couch now, tip the walker just so, and crawl out of it onto the couch! She's a smart little cookie! She also seems to be outgrowing the bottle just a bit and replacing that desire with that of just FOOD. She loves to eat. She also has been taking more steps ~ which just blows my socks off. When I think that she could still be wasting away in a crib half way around the world, I just find myself so grateful, and amazed that my little adventurous and full of life Ivanna, could ever be that little girl left to her bed, without value. It also sobers me to the ones who are still there ~ needing families, needing to be loved.
Max turns six in just a week and a half. I can't believe it. His FIRST birthday with his family. What are we going to do? Good question. Probably keep it low key with a few presents, food and friends. Oh ... and LOT'S of pictures!
Justus starts up again with his physical and occupational therapy since going out of country. I am looking forward to his therapist meeting the newest littles, as she has some ideas for other private therapists that come to your home as well. That would be so nice to be able to have all three children's sessions done at once.
We hope to go eye glass shopping for Max and Ivanna next week. We were told of a place that you can purchase two sets of glasses for just over sixty dollars. Sounds great. We want to check it out.
We have been battling the stomach flu this week ... no fun. Oi - the laundry! So, that has made getting this auction stuff wrapped up ... interesting. I apologize for any delay in communication. Just been a little crazy this week. I appreciate your patience.

I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to see little Max stuffing his face full of that whipped cream, it actually brings me to tears. I am so thankful to God that he & Ivanna are adjusting to life with your beautiful family.

Such a sweet following your precious family. You might want to call Kristi....I sent her to a place in Tacoma (can't remember the name)where you can get two pairs cheap. She would remember because she and Josh got some....I wish I would have taken Nehemiah there for his. (((Hugs))~~~~Lisa
