Today is the day......






That we can finally celebrate that our sweet angel, Matthew, has been in our family longer than he was in Baby Home #1 in Vladivostok, Russia!!!! How exciting!!!!! We also had our 2.5 year check up with our Pediatrician today and the doctor is thrilled with his progress! Matthew is currently in the 50% for height and just under the 50% for weight so he is just perfect! Dr. Patz could not believe how much he was talking and putting more than 2+ words together! We were thrilled! Here is a picture of his last day in the baby home in Vlad and a picture today!!! 4 more days and we are at our 1 Year Gotcha Day!!!

  4. So precious - the first picture gave me goosebumps because I remember how little Daniel looked in a similar type room we saw him in. So happy he's with you all safe and sound and well loved!!
