October 14 – November 13, 2013
what a month! we wrapped up our trip to Ukraine at the end of October. then we moved from our house to an apartment [still in Orange Beach].
this month you:
met your Babushka & Dedushka, Uncle Ilusha, Aunt Yulia & Uncle Vlad for the first time
played with Christian & his Mama & Papa [Brian & Dasha] – you wondered why he could crawl everywhere!
explored the bazaars in Lugansk
visited Bilorichenska Orphanage & all our wonderful teachers & friends there
were added to Papa’s passport as his official son!
went to Мост Надежды [our home church in Lugansk – on the 7th floor of the Lugansk Hotel in the 7th Heaven Chinese Restaurant!]
ate lunch at Aunt Natasha’s home – she is our best friend Yegor’s mama & the best cook we know!
took your first international flight! & did so well!
got your very first fever the day before we traveled back
went to PARIS! & saw the Eiffel Tower
got your 5th tooth in [on the bottom]
moved into our new apartment – just up the road from our house
started to crawl! Army style
eat pears from the trees in Papa’s old backyard
walk while holding onto someone’s fingers – freedom!
play with pots & pans in the kitchen while mama clean & cooks
shake everything – especially things that make noise!
“brush your teeth” with a big boy toothbrush
here are pictures from the remainder of our trip to Ukraine – mostly time with family & friends in Lugansk!
this was taken the day before we left Ukraine. little did we know that this beret-wearing babe would be in Paris the next day!
finally, here are the pictures wrapping up a very exciting month for the Perekotiy family!
