Moses at Twenty-Four Months

I can’t believe my baby is already two years old! He has grown so much from when we left Kinshasa when he was 18 months old. It is amazing how adaptable this little guy is. He travelled across countries, tried new foods, adjusted to a new climate, and had a new baby sister join our family. I enjoyed seeing his little helper side come out and see him master doing certain routines independently. He is starting to say more words in both Swahili and English and puts a lot of thought and focus into his activities. And right when we were getting settled as a family again, we had to be apart for the second time! But it was all worth it for him to meet his Aunts, Uncle, cousin, and Grandparents! It was so fun to see them get to know him too. My family had a birthday/farewell party for him before he and Othy left because we would miss his second birthday. Then he got another party on that side after he arrived!

February Family Photoshoot

Since it would be quite a while before Othy, our kids, and I would be back in Canada for a visit, our larger family decided to capture our time together by hiring a photographer for some outdoor family photos. So on a cold, sunny February day we went out to a park in St. Catharines. We were lucky that there was no wind because it was cold even without it. Credit goes to Michelle Sypkes for taking the formal shots. I took a few informal ones in between. I’m glad we braved the cold and snow for these lovely photos.

Sarah at Two Months

This month Sarah slowly got stronger on her tummy, started smiling, and got to meet more extended family. She nurses really well but burps up a lot! She is growing so fast!
