I had to add the rainbow picture in here because it was so beautiful. We were are the Davie's for their Taiwan beauty's second birthday party and this was part of the party. :)
Anyway, we can't believe that it has been 2 weeks since we got our little cutie-pie. Nicolas is such a blessing to our family and one of these days he will understand everything we say to him and us to him. In 2 weeks he has learned alot of English, become accustomed to American food and understands alot of what we are saying. He fits in so well and Natalie and him play very well together. You know when they are getting tired because then they start bickering, sometimes it is cute.
Nicolas amazes us each day with something new in English. The other day he said "Mama, I'm hungry", I was blown away and about to give him anything he wanted to eat. His favorite thing to eat is peanut butter sandwiches that daddy makes into dinosaurs and bananas. Oh, don't forget the shrimp. Him and Natalie don't just eat the shrimp the inhale it. It is a fight between Nicolas, Natalie, Scooter and Oscar. Joe and I have to wait for left overs, if there are any. Also, Joe was teasing Nicolas the other day and he said "Stop it, Papa". It is so funny when he says things because we just stop and look at each other and laugh. He knows if he does something good we always say "good job". So, now he says it for himself. Nicolas loves to play in the yoyo and to play with other kids. I think alot of what has helped him get acclimated is that there are so many kids in the neighborhood for him to play with, and, of course, all the older girls adore him. We took Nicolas for his first ice cream cone the other day and he liked it alot, but wasn't sure how to handle it. Both him and Natalie had to get bowls before the licking was over.
These past 2 weeks have been trying, at times, but also such a blessing. It has been so much fun to share alot of these fun times with friends and family and we can't wait for more. :)
