Jack is 2 much!

Jack is officially 2 years old. Not many kids have 10 million posts on the family blog about their 2nd birthday, but this is how our families get to be a part of these sweet moments sometimes! After Jack's nap, we skyped family and opened presents sent from America. Jack LOVED opening up his gifts...he had so much fun! Thank you for the big boy watch, fun things to color and draw, cool dude cape, Thomas backpack!, soccer ball from Northern Ireland, soccer goal and little ball, golf set and many, many more fun gifts, books and thoughtful cards! Jack has even learned to "play" his guitar shirt as he watched Geza play his guitar. He got to skype lots of family, spend time with Aunt Bex and Aunt Sarah and then ended the night with our dear friend Laura who watches Jack when we both have to be gone. It was a special day! More to come on the second official birthday party coming this week:)

Jack's birthday morning

Today Jack is 2 years old! Or as he would say when asked how old he is..."2 much!" This morning Daddy made special birthday "pan-cakes" since we aren't having a real birthday cake today. Jack was so excited to help mix up the 2 batches of batter, watch daddy cook his 2 pancakes, and then blow out the 2 candles as we sang Happy Birthday...2 times. Check out the video in the previous entry. Daddy even made 2 Mickey Mouse pancakes, one with "chocolate..ummm...good..yessss" and one with "Booberries!" Jack's favorites.

 After playing around the house this morning, we took Jack to eat at the only restaurant in town we can take him, McDonald's. The picture below is Jack showing off his numb tongue after eating a cup of ice. This afternoon we will head to the park...and then next week once camp is over we will have a birthday party with all of the kids. Happy Birthday Jack! You are my little peanut and sweet baby boy. I love you so much....the day you were born was a day we will never area true gift from the Lord! You fill us with laughter, joy, and amazement each day as you learn and grow. I am so proud to be your mommy!

La Multi Ani Jack!

Digging Ditches!

The other day we were at the houses and they were digging ditches to build a soccer goal for the kids. They were just the perfect size to play in! Here are Levi and Jack in the dirt....where boys love to play!

Back in Romania...Ready, Set, GO!

A few posts ago I tried to capture 3 months of memories into one I am trying to do 3 weeks...both are very difficult! This one is mainly about Jack, since I know many of your reading really just want to see him:) If you want more details on what we have been doing with our LOC kids, check out the LOC blog at I do that one, too!  For now, here are a few snapshots of our time here. From hugs with Eniko, walks in the park, playing in puddles, painting pictures, staff picinics, playing with Emese, stealing balls and shoes, chasing the flag on the 4th of July to enjoying a yummy blue Patriotic cupcake! Thanks for checking in on us, we love you and miss you all very much.
