Ok, so no birthday video...

Will turned the big 1.0 last week! It was fun, lots of friends came, and we even made Will a big cupcake, complete with chocolate frosting, and HE ATE THE WHOLE THING! Here's the problem though: in all the excitement, neither of us took a single picture of the event. Our little boy's first birthday passed by without a single still photo as evidence that we actually celebrated it. We did take video; but due to the length of the video (and our technological limitations), we're unable to post it to the blog. SORRY! You'll just have to take our word for it that his methodical, and eventually, quite messy disassembling of the cupcake was really, really cute. (Especially the part where he raised his messy hands in triumph when he was done.)

So, in lieu of the birthday video, we were about to post another charming video, this time of him checking himself out in the mirror, but apparently that one's too big too. We might be on to something here... maybe the videos aren't too big, but maybe our internet is too slow! Hmmm... Maybe all hope isn't lost on ever getting to see him eat that cupcake. Here's hopefully looking to faster connections in the near future... Oh well, in the meantime enjoy these pictures of Will meeting our social worker and friend Lisa, who helped us bring him into our family:

Long Time No Post .....and the crawl

Well yes I have done it again and waited forever to post again-but I am going to get better. We just made it back to China and are re settling in and working on baby jetlag- very different than adult jet lag- takes twice as long! Den has been nice and has been taking the "graveyard shift" when Will wakes up in the middle of the night ready to play. It is getting better and I know its one of those time to apply that ever so popular phrase...this too shall pass. I just wish the phrase was, this too shall pass, quickly!!

I have been wanting to post this video for awhile. Will crawling. Den thinks when he's in the buff crawling that he looks like Gollam (that "my precious" character from Lord of the Rings). WE love it- always makes us laugh. Will is pulling up and almost standing on his own so it looks like he will be moving on from the crawl soon.

more later..
