Lots of Firsts

We have had another wonderful week at our house, with lots of firsts.

Our sweet baby cousin Lo turned one!  It is so hard to believe that it has been a year since that amazing day! 


Z and D had birthdays, turning 10 and 8!  I have officially been a mom for a decade. 🙂


Kai has been singing “Happy Birthday” any time that he sees a candle, and even when we lit a fire in the fireplace last night.  It is adorable.  With the number of birthday parties we have had in the last week and a half, I’m not surprised by his confusion! 🙂


Kai had his first haircut. I don’t know how he handled haircuts in China, but needless to say, he did NOT enjoy it here!  The woman cutting his hair was trying to calm him down in Mandarin, but that did NOT work. Luckily he was able to cry hysterically and yet still hold still.

We visited our Children’s Museum, which Kai LOVED!  He also loves being silly, and doing whatever his big sisters are doing.


This has happened a couple of times, and I LOVE it.  He has seen Hannah not finishing her meal (yes, that is strange), and he has carefully sat by her to feed her.  Oh, so sweet. Makes me melt.


And unfortunately we finished the week off with Kai’s first visit to urgent care after a fall. He ended up with 3 stitches right below his lip.  He looks pretty happy in these pictures, but that is after they gave him some medicine to calm him down. He is afraid of doctors. TERRIBLY afraid.  Possibly even equal to his fear of Clover.  Knowing that he will be having a lot of doctor visits in his future makes me quite nervous now. The second a doctor is in his eyesight he starts to scream.  And scream. And scream. It is B-A-D!

We have been so blessed by so many people showing their love for us and for Kai. I can’t tell you how much it means to us! Several people have said something to me about my needing to update more often now that we are back. I promise to try my best! Strangely enough these 5 kids don’t like to give me a few quiet minutes on the computer! 🙂
