I met Adam in the doctor’s office at the orphanage in Kharkov, Ukraine.
He was our “plus one.”
Our last minute addition.
I have had lots of questions about how the “Hey Nigel, I think I’ll bring home two boys” conversation went. How do you ask your husband at the last minute if two boys are acceptable? I really don’t remember how it went…I just know he agreed. I am pretty sure he said “I figured.”
He knows me so well.
Adam and Asher were in the same orphanage, but different rooms.
When I saw him for the first time…
he smiled and drooled.
He also had a suh-weet mullet.
Mullets are all the rage in Ukraine.
In the orphanage, he was giggly and smiley for about 15 to 30 minutes
and then he would promptly fall asleep.
He preferred to spend our visits napping.
I am not sure why. Maybe I was just a little overwhelming for him.
We got to take Adam outside twice.
He hates snow suits.
Adam can make some awesome faces.
When he is happy, he is adorable.
When he is mad…adorable.
There is no instance in which this boy is anything but adorable.
(Please refer to the following pictures for proof!)
Adam just turned two.
He likes apple sauce and crackers.
He likes mud.
