videoaleks loved swinging

videomarkus enjoyed swinging, he really loves the hat , he found it today where Mel had sent it to him. (thanks mel -he wants to wear it all the time)

fun in the park

well today we made our first trip to the local park. my aunt has two of her grandchildren here for the week so we all went to the park. Aleks had a blast running and playing on everything. Markus enjoyed the swings. i actually got some video and pics i'll post soon.aleks decided he was going to roll off the merry go round as it was turning and ended up in a big mud hole. he luckily landed on his back he was covered in mud and soaking wet. but he enjoyed that as well. we have sent off both the boys adoption papers to the Department of homeland security now. apparently the embassy people in estonia left them out of the visa packet. we continue to pray we hear that they have everything they need now.

been home 4 weeks

well it has been 4 weeks that we been home. the boys are doing really well. markus is changing daily, he is becoming a big boy walking everywhere , but still loves to sit and spin. the funny thing about him is he only talks at night once the lights go out he talks to his baby monitor. ive had to take him everynight to see my mom so he will go to bed easier. she is away this week and that is hard for him to understand. aleks is getting still adjusting to everything. he talks more and sometimes we can even understand him.

well we had markus to the urgent care center on staurday. he was having a bit of difficulty breathing. he has bronchitis and the doctor flushed something out of his ear. not sure what it was but all i know is the doctor said it had been there a long time. now he is more alert , so we are guessing it was blocking his hearing some.

well such is life......

well the boys are doing great. they both have a little cold right now but nothing major. we are setting them up appointments with the UK international clinic in lexington so the doctor can check them out. aleks has decided that if momma says no he will grab the toy cell phone and call daddy. markus has put on a little weight and exploring new foods. i do have new pics to post .

things are getting better

well the boys had a visit to the upper cervical chiroprater today,(luckily it is my cousin), little markus had one leg an inch longer then the other no wonder he wasnt walking well. his jaws were also not lined up . once he was put in place he laughed and giggled for a good 20 mins. aleks got all quiet after he was adjusted. markus has also been working with holly ( our music friend) and she has been getting him to repeat beats to her. and he is trying to beat box like my nephew
