Wow. Wow. Wow.
It's our 6 month anniversary.
The anniversary of the day...
Markos said Goodbye to the care center and his friends there.
Took a very long plane ride to America
Drove home from the airport in a "mini-bus-y"
(or minivan as most Americans call it!)
Met his new brother and sister
No more this...
or sleeping in this bed with another boy...
or living here...
or playing here
Instead, in the past 6 months, he has gotten to....
|play in the snow|
|laugh and dance and wrestle|
|take walks around the neighborhood|
|play at the park|
|learn to love Penguins hockey|
|have a big brother|
|play with cool toys|
|have a big sister|
|act totally silly|
|snuggle with Mommy|
|be tickled by Pappy|
|color Easter eggs|
|get Easter baskets|
|get all dressed up for Easter Sunday|
|get a new bike helmet (which he wore throughout the entire Easter dinner!)|
|be dedicated to God with his church family|
|play in sprinklers|
|take hikes with Daddy|
|play at the lake|
|be wild on the slip n' slide|
|go to the pool (and take swimming lessons)|
|play in the sand|
|play soccer with the family|
His eyes were filled with wonder, excitement,
and a little fear
on that first ride home from the airport....
...but he made sure there was constantly
a new song to sing,
and we are so thankful for the joy that he brings
to our family!!
Happy 6 months home!!
