Catch-all post

This is my mountain of laundry. 90% of it is currently put away. Who would have thought that 5 people could dirty this many clothes in one week's time. Amazing.

One moment Keith was here...

A few seconds later he was halfway up the stairs...he can now crawl up the stairs. I know. Wow. There's a video below of him doing it. It's amazing.

I snapped this photo of Anna & Kristina the other night - isn't it sweet? You can't see it, but Anna's right arm is around Kristina. Say it with me: "AWWW!"

Kristina enjoying her scooter:

Keith crawling up the stairs:

Kristina showing some gymnastics moves. In related news, both Anna & Kristina started gymnastics today. Kristina is olympic material, people. She's tiny, she's strong, she's Ukrainian. What more does she need? (besides years and years of training, of course).

Oh, I hear ya on the laundry. It never ends.

wow! look at them go!! they are doing great! it was so fun to see them on the go! I remember when we picked up Ethan in Russia and we stayed in this apartment that had a 2 inch lip between areas of the apartment. He could not figure how to get over it either up or down. Kieth on the stairs reminded me of that. he is gonna be a mover and a shaker! he goes up those steps lickity split! now before you know it he will be into everything!

Seriously, do they teach them to turn like that in Ukraine? Hannah can do that too! Hannah has awesome ab muscles(as I'm sure Kristina does too!)! Our two could be on a team together!
