We had a great time on our vacation. Eli wasn't crazy about the ocean, but he did enjoy playing in the sand. He loved playing in the pool. He splashed and splashed, and was so adorable! There were 14 people in the house, and he did so well. He loved the attention. We were worried about him being overstimulated, but he didn't have any meltdowns or difficulty. So much has changed in 2 months.

One of the highlights of the week was a visit from Ryan and Stephanie. We had a Kolomna baby reunion! Ryan and Eli were in the same orphanage at the same time. It was wonderful to finally meet them in person, and be able to spend some time with them. We had a great afternoon!

Welcome back! It looks like you guys had a great time. Eli is super cute with his little curls! It's great Ryan & Stephanie were able to stop by. I'm happy you guys all had the chance to meet in person.

Hope you've been feeling okay - enjoy the rest of the summer!

Sounds like you had a wonderful family vacation. How neat that you were finally able to meet the other family in person. I'm sure you both had lots to talk about.
