"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do.
God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know,
and holds us responsible to act." Prov 24:12

I cannot think of a better word to describe how Sasha has been feeling these past two weeks. He seems positively giddy about life! He is so happy and because of that, we are blessed with smiles and giggles all day long. When I walk into his room in the morning, I am greeted by the biggest smile and because he just can't contain all that excitement he then starts rolling around in his crib smiling, laughing and making all sorts of happy noises. What a GREAT way to start the day!

Due to all this giddiness, he will just randomly break out into smiles, laughter and adorable babble throughout the day. He could be sitting next to me on the couch and the next thing I know, he is giddy. He could be playing with a bunch of toys on the floor and the next thing I know, he is giddy. He could be sitting in his bouncy chair watching me prepare food and the next thing I know, he is giddy. He is just so happy with life!

He was even so giddy at his first zoo visit the other day that he actually smiled for the camera... he just couldn't contain himself! Usually, it is very hard to actually capture a smile because when he sees the camera, he gets very serious and then once he hears the camera click and sees the flash go off, he then gives a big smile...that little bugger! But on Saturday, he was having so much fun at the zoo he couldn't even contain his smiles for the camera.

I cannot tell you how much it means to me to see him blossoming and to see him coming to the realization that life can actually be pretty nice! He is absolutely loving his new life and we are absolutely loving our new life with Sasha!


  1. he looks so thrilled with life..he has wonderful parents and a family..hes no longer an orphan he knows he has alot to smile about..xooxoxoo

  2. He is happy and he knows you guys are the ones that is giving him this opportunity to be happy... It is so nice to see his smile. He has a wonderfull family!

  3. "He is just so happy with life" That's what I see. We always knew he was cute, but to see the joy coming from him makes him so beautiful. He's found the beauty of a family and the love that comes with it.
