Can you believe that it has been one year since we first laid eyes on our sons. I have started an entry with memories from that trip and I will try to post it this week. For now here is a summary of the amazing growth in our sons.
Has grown 5 inches and gained 11 pounds. He was in the 3% for height and is now in the 60%. He was in the 32% for weight and is now in the 68%. He went from wearing a size 2T to wearing size 4/5. He is fluent in English and excelling in school. He is such a happy sweet kid. He always was but there were definitely a lot more melt downs at the beginning. He has to be the friendliest boy ever and loves to meet new friends. He will talk to anyone, feels deeply for others, and loves a good laugh.
This is a picture taken almost a year ago. Yared is wearing jeans and shoes that Nati now wears.
What a handsome kid!! We are so proud of him and how well he has handled such a HUGE adjustment.
Nati has grown 6 inches and gained 10 pounds. He is now only two inches shorter than Yared was last year. He was not on the growth charts for height last year and is now in the 20%. In weight he was in the 31% and is now in the 58%. He was wearing a size 9-12 months and is now in size 2T. He is fluent in NSL (Nati sign language) and is rapidly learning new verbal words. He is a bundle of mischief and fun who still loves to snuggle with Mommy. These two pictures really show the change in his personality from a shy clingy baby to a running bouncing 2 year old.
