Quick Update

I'll post more later, but our days are flying by. Yesterday, the kids saw the pediatrician for their initial visits, blood work and first immunizations. They all did really well. In the afternoon, we did a bone age exam and chest x-ray- they loved seeing the films after they were done. I wish I could have understood what they were saying to each other, but they were definitely excited. We should have a determination on ages soon, but our pediatrician agrees with the doctor at the Transition Home that the kids's ages on their birth certificates are too old!! That usually doesn't happen with ET adoptions. I think they are getting overly cautious now that many family have brought children back to the States and their children were much older than their reported ages. Thankfully, we can amend their birth certificates with notes from our physician, when we finalize here in North Dakota.

Gabe and Layne have respiratory bugs, so we're not running on full steam here. Any prayer warriors out there who want to pray for my little ones, I would appreciate it...

I just have to say my husband has been awesome--he takes over at the dinner table and is really making learning English fun. The kids are already starting to speak in small sentences and seem to understand more of what we're saying to them.
