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...


Good Times with New Friends

A few weeks ago we had our new friends Wendy, Andrew, Trevor and baby Blair bear over for dinner.  Nicky and Trevor played soccer together, and now t-ball, and have really hit it off.  Kris and I don't really have any other friends who have kids Nicky's age, so it's fun to get to hang out and have "adult time" while the boys get to play and shake some of their sillies out.  They're a lot like us in their parenting styles and we seem to have similar interests, so it's been fun getting to know them better.  Speaking of, here's Blitzer getting to know Blair a little better...

He was all about her!  I can't say I blame him.  Any time I'm I see her I immediately want her in my arms and can't resist kissing her chubby little cheeks!  Nicky is quite taken with her as well and calls her "girlfriend Blair"!

After dinner, the boys did what boys do best...rough-housed.  What is it that is so appealing about rolling around on top of each other in the dirt/grass while chasing after a ball?  Why is wrestling so cool to boys?  Good thing I was a girl, or I surely woudn't have fit in.

No evening would be complete without tooling the alley in Nicky's fire engine!  They rode up and down the alley while putting out imaginary fires. 

It was quite a warm evening, but something about sitting on the back patio eating fresh fruit in the summertime is just appealing.  The boys gobbled up 3 skewers of fruit-kabobs each!

After more fun playing in the playroom inside, the we all had to call it a night.  Both boys were sad and were begging for a sleep-over, so we all agreed that it's definitely in order sometime soon!
