babies and stuff

Taking care of a 5 month old is exciting, draining and fulfilling. Each time I get a chance to care for Olya's daughter Yanna is a complete joy.

Yesterday Yanna was here all day. She took two naps and Olya had to wake her up to take her home. Olya and Volva had errands to run so Yanna stayed with us and they took Ira with them. Ira was not thrilled about that arrangement she wanted to be with Uncle Tom and Aunt Alida too!

Afterwards, Olya and Tom went over to the store where he jewelry was being sold to check on the inventory. Tom took back all the items he had for sale over there... it appears that the location of the store may be changing as the owner of the building may be tearing it down to build something else. Tom still has pieces at Garmonia (Harmony) Bible Store here in town.

We heard that our ministry partners out at the rehab center are new grandparents. Mother and baby are doing well. Angelina was born five minutes after her mom got to the birthing house. She is 47 centimeters long and 2.5 kilos.

All has been quiet on the southern Russia front this morning. Spencer is at school. Nathan and Tom are still asleep and I thought I would pop online to read the news and decided to stop off here as well.

I hope you have a great day!
