Baby Dedication and Other Fun Events!

We got the opportunity to dedicate Andrew at our baby dedication at our church on Sunday, May 18th. For those who are not familiar with baby dedication, it means that we are making a commitment to God that we are going to raise our child to know Him, and to hopefully have a personal relationship with Him one day (of course that will be a personal decision for Andrew to except Christ as his Savior to guarantee a place in heaven one day). This is one of the reasons we wanted to bring Andrew into our family. What an opportunity to raise this little guy to know God, when most likely in his country he would never gotten that chance. We decided to dress Andrew in traditional Kyrgyz clothes. We wanted people to understand more about Andrew's birth country, and the culture there. Everyone did crack up when we were in front of the church and Andrew decided to growl. He just couldn't hold it back! It is his most favorite sound.

Our Pastor presents us with a gift for Andrew.

We all went out to eat to help make this day more rememorable!

Andrew's Kyrgyz buddy, Matthew turned two, and we got to help him celebrate his big day!

Andrew and Matthew have fun in Matthew's new wagon!

Andrew's new favorite thing to do is play with his truck and push it around! What a boy!

Andrew and Daddy are chilling on the porch!

My Uncle Ray and Anne from Colorado came to Ohio for a visit, and got to meet Andrew!

I get to be an aunt again! Andrew, you are no longer the smallest one!

Now that is texting till you drop! Alisha has been so tired from track practice!

Jeremy, Andrew and I all showed up matching to my dad's birthday get together! We had to take a picture.

Such kissable cheeks!

Now that is a lot of grandkids!
