Ivan hadn't been out of the apartment for weeks and I knew he was getting cabin fever. A couple days ago Ryan and I decided that we should try to take the boys out one night to look at Christmas lights.
We didn't know how it would go, but we were excited to try :)
Ivan was so excited! He kept saying Machina (car) "Ivanco Machina mama" "Beep beep!!" and "Smile!!" when I would take a picture.
Our first stop was the little house that goes ALL OUT every year!! There are always people stopping and walking through their yard.
After that we drove all around Bismarck, just talking and enjoying our time together. Our baby fell right back to sleep, but our oldest stayed awake and shared in daddy and mama's excitement. We are simply LOVING our new family of four.
We can't imagine life before 4 now!
Please keep Ivan in your prayers tomorrow as he has his first appointment with his pediatrician. I'm very nervous and anxious about it. I'm praying that he will remain calm and feel safe the whole time. You may be wondering why we are just now taking him to the pediatrician. It's a long story that has to do with lots of phone calls and documents being sent to our insurance, but we believe waiting this long has actually been very good for Ivan. He has progressed so much this past month!! The child that the pediatrician will see tomorrow hardly resembles the little boy she would of seen if we saw her a week after being home.
I am excited to hear what she has to say. You can be expecting a long update soon :)
