That is what our gang likes to do... going to ballgames, playing with bubbles, riding around...I haven't uploaded any pictures of the trampoline and swimming. That is their favorite thing to do.
Little N is as bald as ever....EXCEPT, I will have to say that he is growing out some hair and it is coming in blonde. Those that never met us and don't know we have adopted will say to us
" they all look alike", even those that know we adopted say how uncanny it is that he looks like his sisters. It wouldn't matter to me what he looks like...he is a doll baby.
We had an interesting situation come up at the NC Ukrainian/Russian Adoption picnic yesterday. We were all in the pool and one of the little boys that was adopted came up to him and asked all about him and what his former name was. Little N was very interested in this boy. He kept reaching out for him. N reached out to the little boy with his right hand (the one that is deformed) and the little boy screamed. He apologized profusely afterwards, he said it just scared him. He thought N had been burnt bad or something. I explained about how N was born that way. The little boy was great about it. I realize that most people have never seen a hand like N's. I suppose that we are so used to it that we don't even notice it. We have never really noticed it.
We did take N to the hand surgeon and they said that they could do surgery on his hand. However, one of the fingers that is welded in with the middle 3 does not have a bone. So, they will be able to seperate, but, he will only have 4 fingers. He is so good with his hands, that I can't even imagine them being seperated. But, I know it will be for the best for his future. It just pains me to think that he might be teased one day. But, I fully believe in not making a big deal out of anything. If you are not freaked out...others won't be.
Just like the other day, N has taken to the water like a fish. We are going to have to watch out for him. He likes to go out on his own. I have to remind him "Hello, you just learned how to walk....lets take it easy son!" :) Our girls were and are just as independent. Whew!. Busy household!
Hope all is well with everyone!! Anything new in anyone's life? Love to hear from you!!!
