September Update!!!!!!!

Polina is doing awesome as a big sister. She loves to give kisses to baby Mia and knows how to make her smile and laugh. She knows all her colors and is starting to count. She has been doing a really great job going on the potty and loves to get piece of candy and ice pops as a reward. We finished the letter to the birth mom. We had my sisters friend who is Russian translate the letter that we wrote into Russian and all the questions that we have for the birth mom. Illich is leaving very soon so we are looking forward to all the new information that we hopefully we'll receive. Polina 's speech has been progressing quite well. She starting to talk to us in sentences. She'll say"Where did daddy go" or where is my lipstick" it's actually a lip balm and my sister started it all. When we went over my sisters house my sister decided to put some lip gloss on Polina's lips. So now if we go to the mall and we pass by Max Factor and she sees a picture of a model in the window she points out the lipstick. She applies the lip balm over and over and than smacks her lips together. She is such a girl...she loves shoes and dresses and loves to put on every ones shoes that comes over. The more sparkle the better. Mia is doing well also. She is 4 months old already and is a very big girl. She is at 95 % for height and weight. We had some trouble with acid reflux but now she's on Prevacid and its helping her tremendously. I am gonna try to be much better with updating the blog but with the two kids it's kind of hard. It's 10 pm here and everyone is sleeping except me. I should be sleeping also but I get too excited to have some free time for myself and I never wanna go to bed and by the time I fall asleep Mia wakes up to eat so I only get 4 or 5 hours of sleep. Than the next day begins and its the same cycle. I'm tired and should be sleeping but I cant because I'm to excited to finally have time to myself and I don't want the night to end and than by the time I go to bed its already after 11 than Mia will wake up around 2 so than I am up again trying to fall asleep than she'll be up again at 5 or so and than I am up again. This is not fun at all. I am going to drink some tea now and hopefully I'll be ready to go to bed.wish me luck!!!!!
