Happy Birthday Joshua!!

Today is Joshua's 6th birthday.  This video is his first ever birthday party since we adopted from Russia. Probably his first birthday party in his WHOLE life. He was so excited that he couldn't wait until the end of the song to blow out the candles. PRICELESS!!  What a precious gift we have!!  We are so thankful to have him in our family.  
In this video we are with my family and he is sitting on his uncle's lap - they share January birthdays.  Todd and I are taking pictures and video:)

Day of Discovery - Earphones

I bought these earphones for Joshua so that on the plane trip home from Russia he could hear music/movies. He wouldn't have anything to do with them. He could not tolerate them on his head. Last night before bed, I thought I would give them a try again! So cute!! I could tell he was trying to explain to me that he could hear music!!

 This first picture cracks me up.  The realization that
sound is coming through those funny looking ear things.

Sheer Delight!!

 Mom.  This thing makes music!!!

See!!  Right Here!!

The rest of the pictures speak for themselves...
