Want to see some really cute baby pictures?

I finally scanned all the pictures I got several months ago from one of the caretakers from Hospital #3, where Cohen spent the first 20 months of his life. We met this lady on our first trip, she actually took a picture of us with Cohen. She took all of these pictures using the camera on her cell phone. When we went to get Cohen in February, she went through all the pictures on her phone and I asked her to print them for us. We had to leave Russia before she printed all the pictures, so one of the other families that was there from America brought them back with them and mailed them to us.

Its hard to watch this without crying...so good luck!

You will notice a few pictures of Cohen's hair...yep, that's real. Cracks me up everytime I see the picture.

I should also mention that the folks responsible for dressing the children didn't really care if they were boys or girls...they got whatever was clean...so there are several pictures where my little man is wearing pink or flowers. It's pretty funny.

One last thing, New Years in Russia is kind of a big deal. They celebrate for weeks...and they dress up. This is the reason for the pictures of Cohen dressed up as a lion. Nope it's not Halloween, although that does give me a good idea as to what to do this year. Those pictures are Cohen celebrating 2010.

Enjoy.

  5. 人類的聰明,並非以經驗為依歸,而是以接受經驗的行程為依歸。..................................................
