We saw our daughter!

We saw Polina again today for an hour. When she came in she was still a bit leary of Joe but didn't cry and within a minute or two pointed to him and said "Dada". she has grown a bit but her 18 month clothes still fit, barely. She is talking now with single words and caught on to everything we played. Jaxon sent some Cheerios with us for Polina so we snuck in the contraband food and gave her one. She looked at it and after watching me eat a couple she finally took a bite. She didn't chew she just grinned. It was cute.

Tonight we had dinner at a nice Italian pub with another adoptive couple. Tomorrow we will go to visit Polina again at 4pm.

Btw.. We told Polina that she is a Dechant now. She seemed fine with it. :)


  1. awwww....I loved the part about Polina being a Dechant! Totally made me tear up! Congrats, you guys! I am so happy for you.

  2. I helped dad figure out how to read your blog. I couldn't explain to him how to write a post so I said I would do it for him....

    "Crystal I am so happy tears are streaming down my face. I love you. Dad"

  3. Thanks dad! Polina is a pretty lucky girl to be getting a grandpa like you! Thanks for all your help.

  4. Charlotte and I forgot to mention that we are very excited to hear that Polina is growing! Grow Polina grow! Lol

  5. I can't wait to come back to KC to see you all!! What a blessing to have a daughter!
