Silas is recovering quite well. The incision looks better each day and he doesn't seem limited in what he can do. About once a day he will get into some sort of position and he will say that it hurts his chest, but other than that he is fine. Silas is learning more English, although his pronunciations aren't perfect (yet). His "more" sounds like "mar" and he cannot say his name to save his life. He knows his name, just cannot pronounce it. Ha ha. Every morning without fail he comes into my room and lays his head on my tummy. Then he goes on the other side of the bed and does the same to Tyler. He is full of love and just the sweetest little boy ever. He is often snuggling and loving on someone throughout the day. Such a sweet little pumpkin.
I am trying to gear up for our move - next month! We are moving ourselves and that should mean that we are packing everyday...but we haven't been. We did go through the garage a couple of weeks ago, so that is something, right? We are scouting out the area to find a place to live. We thought about being in a smaller house to try and save money but I don't think a family of 7 should be in a 1300 square foot home...I think that Iryna, at least, needs her space to calm down. I have been going on a walk around the block in the evenings which has been nice. I am planning to sign up at the YMCA when I get back to OH and will be able to work out while the kids play in the nursery area. I miss that place.
Tyler is doing well with work and catching some waves when possible. He has taken Anna golfing twice in the last month and they have enjoyed that time together. I am so grateful for a dedicated and hard-working husband who takes care of our family and who takes care of me. I have a blessed life.
