We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...


Our 3rd Anniversary!

Three years ago today, Kris and I were married in Southlake, TX. It's hard to believe it's only been 3 years. Not that it's been a long three years, but we've accomplished so much together in such a short time! We've purchased (and remodeled) a new house; we've traveled a bunch; and the biggest accomplishment is, of course, adopting Nicky!

Kris had to work today, so it was just me & Nicky celebrating. We started the day off right with momma scooping the final specimen for the lab work...such fun! Thank goodness that was the last one. Nicky thinks it's great to watch momma playing scientist...momma thinks it's just gross! Today's was especially gross...and to top it off, it was escaping the diaper & ended up on the floor. Nicky, like his momma, does not like things to be where they don't belong, and insisted on momma cleaning it up before proceeding with the cleaning of himself. Needless to say, wipes weren't cutting it, so Nicky received a morning shower!

I decided today would be the day that we would only wear underwear & no pull-ups, since we didn't have plans to leave the house (other than a walk to the park). Well, we've been through 3 sets of clothes and it's only 5:07pm! We've been taking him about once an hour while he was wearing pull-ups, and most days we would make it thru a full day with only one. So today, I set the timer to go off every 45 or so minutes to remind us it was time to potty. Every time we went into the bathroom, he went, however, that didn't stop him from dousing the couch, his booster seat and the kitchen floor! Oh well, tomorrow's another day!
