Flying Home

For those who don't know, we have been in Lithuania since the 1st of July. As this post publishes, we are somewhere in the middle of the trip home (gotta love technology). It was a long time to be away, but we really had a great time. Details of the trip to follow. The caricature of the kids was drawn in Palanga near the Baltic Sea in Lithuania.

Gabbie's first infatuation?

I didn't even know a two year old could flirt. But sure enough, Gabbie has found infatuation with her first boy. His name is Gabrielius, which in itself is cute, but Gabbie affectionately calls him Yogas. They would hold hands and and Yogas would say "Let's play house, I will be the dad and you be the Mom." Gabbie was undoubtedly smitten, and although it was cute I can't help but fast forward my life 10 or 12 years and wonder where I am going to hide the shot gun.

Neurosurgery Update

I just realized that I haven't updated after receiving the results of Niklas's MRI. Basically, everything looked great and they told us not to come back for one year! We have not yet been longer than 6 months without a visit to U of M, so this is a big step in a positive direction. I just keep praying that everything is working well in there and that we don't have an incident for years to come, if ever. We sure have come a long way from the day we heard the news about the Intraventricular Hemorrhage. Niklas is very athletic and his language skills are very rapidly developing in ways that I could never have imagined when we were in the hospital wondering if he was going to make it. We are blessed!
