Yesterday Greta took the Lithuanian crew to the airport. The week went by incredibly fast so it seems like they were hardly here. It was so nice having the company, but it was much too short. Nonetheless, it was something new every day with the kids. Zivile played with and talked to the babies so much that they (especially Gabbie) are now speaking their own language which is neither English nor Lithuanian. They just babble at you like they are having a full blown conversation. All three of them have now learned to go down the stairs, although Niklas is not the most graceful. Gabbie has started to eat with a spoon, and Niklas has further developed his throwing arm. The other day I came home from work and Niklas was standing at the top of the stairs overlooking the living room. He removed his binky from his mouth and proceeded to bean me in the back head with it from about 5 feet away. I turned around to see what hit me and he was laughing hysterically. I must say, it was a proud moment. In the pictures, Greta's Mom Irena is wearing the gray suit. Greta's father Dailius is wearing the blue sweater. Jonas is the one wearing the dark sunglasses and his wife Zivile is holding Lukas.
