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...


Birthday Booty

Nicky's 4th birthday was a huge success...as evidenced by the loot he received!

Good thing we have a playroom to stash all the stuff and good thing I'm anal an organized, because our house would be over-run with toys for sure!

Here's Nicky giving his GG (great-Granny) a big hug after getting a cool new truck.  The day after Nana, Pop and GG left, Nicky told me "i wike gg.  i pway wif her again!"  That just melts my heart, because that woman has such a special place in my heart!

Nana and Pop got Nicky a cool new train set that attaches to a smaller one they got him at Christmas.  He's played with it non-stop since Pop and Daddy got it all set up for him on Sunday!

The only thing Nicky asked Kris and I for gift-wise was an ambulance.  He actually asked for it at Christmas, after we had already spent a ton on other toys, so we figured we'd better oblige him on his birthday.  He pulled the tissue out of the bag (because, let's face it, I can't be bothered to actually wrap a gift!) and his face was priceless!  I wish I had caught it on camera.  He immediately started to play with it and open the doors to see what all it entailed.  We had to remind him that he still had more gifts to open!  The ambulance now "rescues" the train engineers.

Granny and Poppa couldn't join us, so they sent Nicky a few small items...

...and some cash-money for Nicky's 1st big-boy bike!  He ran outside to it and climbed right on.  He still has some practicing to do, but he's getting better.  The peddling/steering/braking is a lot for him to handle all at once...not to mention actually paying attention to where he's going while doing all that!  I'm sure he'll master it in no time.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make Nicky's birthday so much fun!  He was definitely a very happy little guy!
