Well today Cain and I walked down the road here in Kazakhstan praising God that it was the last day we would have to walk down it. It is a beautiful country but nothing is like home. We miss home cooking, and being able to walk in our kitchen and fix what we want. We miss having our own bed, and being able to watch more then 1 channel of TV in English. We miss being able to hop in our own car and drive to where we need. We miss being able to understand what everyone around us is saying aside of each other, and most of all we miss our girls. I do believe that absence makes the heart grow fonder, and I haven't felt more fonder about my girls then I have this week. Sometimes you can take things for granted when you live day by day, but after this experience I am so fortunate for our home, and for the food we always have. I am also thankful for the way Americans drive, and for traffic laws. Little things like that you would never think to be thankful for. Andrew has been making little baby steps every day in connecting with us and with life. He has been understanding the purpose of toys more and taking less interested in staring at his own hands. He has been eating better, and I even got him to eat carrots with apples in it. Yuck!!! Sleep time can still be a challenge for him because he is afraid to fall asleep in fear of where we may go. We are building his trust a little bit more everyday. I feel things will get easier when we get home because he can adjust to one environment for awhile. Here we are always going to appointments or having to leave to get something to eat. Pray we have a safe journey home. I fear how Andrew will do flying for such a long period of time, in once again an environment he isn't use to. We will see you all when we get home!!!!!!!!!
I'm learning to play with toys now!!!
I fool mom and dad making think I'm an angel when I'm sleeping!!!!
