Number of days we have lost with our daughter due to the negligence of the state of Illinois: 50 (Ugh!)
Today is K.'s 9th birthday. If you know him in real life, you probably already know that, though, because he has been telling us and everyone he sees that today is his birthday for a while now. Let's just say he is a little bit enthusiastic about the whole thing. Actually, K. is enthusiastic about nearly everything that interests him. There is very little half-way with the boy. His current loves continue to be the Hulk, cars, Legos, and St. Bernards. This is a lovely diversification from his years long obsession with all things Cars. An all-consuming interest I never thought would abate.
K. continues to make great strides and the two years' worth of delays he accumulated while sitting in the orphanage become less and less noticeable. He is just such a happy, bouncy, energetic, loving boy and I can't imagine life without him. To remember how little this guy was, take a look at these two posts (some of the only early ones which have pictures... he's wearing 12 -18 month sized clothes in these. In case You needed a Smile and Just Because it's Cute
Tonight we will be having hamburgers and for dessert he chose Oreo Pudding Dream Bars because he saw the picture in my facebook news feed and needed to have it. I'll let you know how it is... it sounds tooth-achingly sweet.
Happy Birthday, K. I love you very, very much!
