ONE month!!

I can hardly believe that this time one month ago we were on our very last flight from Chicago to Fargo ND!

We have been home ONE month!!

Time has flown by, but when I stop and think about how far we have come in one short month I am absolutely astounded.

Ivan is not the same child that he was one month ago. Yes, we have days when he will regress in an instant and fear will take over again, but that is not the norm anymore.

I think it's safe to say that we have found a new normal for our family. It is so different than our life before bringing home Ivan, but now we can't imagine life any other way than with our little man.

I don't even know where to start when it comes to the changes that we are seeing so I hope that pictures do an adequate job of showing you what your prayers and support have meant for this one little boy.

These were taken tonight at dinner

 Is it just me or does he look like a different child? He has a confidence in him now. He is realizing that he has a voice, he can be heard, and mama and daddy will meet his needs and desires.

I think he has already put on some weight :)

He is super excited in these pictures because he hears the bath water running and bath time is his absolute FAVORITE thing!!

Even with dinner all over his face isn't he just the cutest thing you've ever seen?!? We are so head over heels for him and he KNOWS IT :)
