What time is it in Ukraine?

Here are some pictures to bridge some of the gaps between the end of January and now.  We've had lots of events since Brody has been born.  Inna's teacher quite at her school so we changed preschools, Inna had her palate surgery and recovered well, we had Nana live with us for 2 weeks while Inna recovered from her surgery and we took our first road trip to St. Joseph and Jefferson City to visit our families.  Whew!  Here are some pics:) 

Brody during the first week of being born...

I took Inna to meet up with some friends at Chick-fil-a...this is their silly pose:)

I love this picture...he's so stinkin' cute!

I just love her smile! 

Brody likes the bobby pillow...so comfy!

This is Inna right after surgery:(  We stayed one night in the hospital.  Not only did they repair her palate, but they also took out her tonsils and 2 teeth.  She was in a lot of pain and was on many medications.  The first week she was only allowed liquids, then the following 2 weeks she could have foods that could be squished between 2 fingers.  We ate mostly bananas, pasta, and pudding during that time. 

Yay!  We get to go home:)

This is the 2nd or 3rd time Inna held Brody...he was 8 weeks old.  This transisiton has been hard on her but this was a sweet moment.  Brody was crying in my room and she told me he was scared.  She insisted on holding him right there on the stairs.  She sang to him and held in his pacifier.  LOVE:) 

Cute smile! 
P.S.--The tape is to help close the gap of the cleft.  He wears it nearly every day and we change it after several feedings because it gets dirty.  We have already seen the gap decrease, which will help for his upcoming surgery.

I love watching Brody eat...isn't he adorable?  :)  Those fists!
