Straight From The Horse's Mouth

Or something like that.

I've been a little bit behind on posting up recent vids of the little lion man, so here are a couple in one go. Since the filming of these, he has progressed to saying mama pretty clearly and also meow when we prompt with "where's kitty," and many other sounds that could almost be words in Russian. It only stands to reason that the baby that was thought to be a non-responsive vegetable will be bi-lingual. That's our Leo for ya!
Oh yeah, since this vid, his nickname for Nika is pretty much always: "Ahhh!?!"


  1. I do believe I heard the Russian for "life is wonderful"......and with a little training, Leo and Niki will be able to join the choir soon.

  2. This is one feel-good vid for the year! AHHHHHH!!! Sooo funny and cute.

  3. I'm laughing and crying and thanking God that, no matter how I fair this day, I know I will be uplifted by this Nika and Leo cuteness! Miss you guys, and wish you all the best,

It has been a long time...maybe the longest since I have written to you all last.

Not so little anymore, in a couple weeks he will be seven years old.  And so will this blog!  It is amazing to think back to the frightening beginning of it all, and to realize that never in a hundred years could I have pictured myself now, sitting and typing this post at my sunny kitchen table, in my own house, while the early morning sounds trickle in from the open porch door and mingle with the voices of my children in the other room. Not one child, as we all thought seven years ago, but two.  Seven years ago, Leo was not going to live to his first birthday. He was not going to be able to talk sweetly to his big sister, as I hear him doing right now. Though I'm sitting in the other room, I can picture them both clearly; his s…

For The NICU

So you guys know that September is the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) awareness month right?  Yeah, I didn't know either.  Every month there is some disease or disorder that we should worry, promote, and be aware after awhile all that awareness stuff gets tiring... But this is the first time I've heard of an awareness month for a place, rather than a physical condition. What's up with that? How come we need an awareness month for a section of the hospital? We have an awareness month for breast cancer, not the cancer ward why the NICU? I'm pretty sure there is a preemie dedicated month, and one for every other condition that may have put the infant in the NICU in the first place, so why the preferential treatment? After thinking about it for awhile, the only reason I could come up with for the need of this awareness of a place, is that the place itself has inherent issues that people (especially potential NICU parents) should be aware of. No…
