Check out these 2nd grade spelling/vocabulary words for the week:
She has to spell the word correctly as she matches it to the appropriate definition. Her words the last two weeks were equally impressive and she's made 100% each time.
Now, don't you think that's amazing? I do!

(Sorry it's blurry, I took this picture in the dark and the camera couldn't focus well)
And every morning, he somehow gets out of his swaddle blanket and scoots his way completely opposite and turns on his Rain Forest Music!! Like this . . .
We don't know if he is batting it with his hand or feet, but Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning between 6:06 a.m. and 6:07 a.m. we hear the music begin!! This morning he slept until 7-ish because he went to bed later last night, so we were already up and getting D ready for school before the music began.
If it had happened only once or even every once in a while, I'd think it was an accident. But with it happening now four days in a row, I think he's doing it intentionally!!
Isn't that genius!!??!!
By the way, he's sleeping through the night!! Six nights in a row he's gone to bed about 8:30 and wakes up around 6 (or however long it takes him to do his little scoot maneuver!!) We hear him around 6 I should say.

After waiting 10 months between the first trip and this trip, they are about an hour into their flight from JFK to Moscow.
My prayers are definitely with them.
As much as I love C and am beyond thrilled to have him in our lives and family, a part of my heart will always belong in Russia and long to return there. I'll be following their journey to bring Sugar and Spice home and living vicariously through their journey!
Another of my Pre-Adoptive friends, K and her husband M left Saturday to meet their hopeful son-to-be, baby I. They have been waiting for a referral since about the time we went to meet Viktoria in March of 2006! So they are really due for an easy breezy process from here on out! Nope, she doesn't have a blog yet no matter how much I've begged her to make one. So, please pray for K, M and baby I as they begin their journey to family-hood!

C began having spit up problems (we're still dealing with it, so I don't think it was a bug, Deb). So I felt a little torn being away from him. But his Daddy did a good job! Hubby was great all weekend! He made breakfast for all of us on Saturday morning, homemade waffles and bacon.
In case you didn't see the pix on Debbie's blog, you'll have to click on her blog to see them because I've uploaded them to my computer and can't find them now! My camera was on it's last leg and I didn't take it.
