We feel so fortunate to have the relationships we do with Dimitri’s birth mom and birth dad. It’s hard to describe how much love and gratitude we have for them. I am so grateful that Dimitri will grow up knowing his story and knowing all the people in his life who love him.
A few weeks ago, Dimitri’s birth father Luis and his girlfriend Tonya welcomed a sweet little boy into the world. We were able to go and visit them on Saturday and meet their baby Lucas.
I love Christmas, and I think it’s starting to rub off on Dimitri. He is starting to figure out what it’s all about, although he didn’t want to get too close to Santa this year. We only do a few small gifts because we want to make sure that we stay focused on the real reason for celebrating.
There is a fun little event every Christmas called Christkindlmarkt that I discovered a few years ago and love going to. They have all kinds of fun things for kids to do. Dimitri liked riding the pony even more than at Halloween, and he loved petting all the animals.
I’m a little behind on posts, so I’m going to try to catch up on things that have happened in the past few months.
Dimitri was a raccoon for Halloween! It was so fun. He’s still a little too young to understand exactly what Halloween was, so he didn’t have an opinion on what to dress up as. I figured, once he’s old enough to really get it, he won’t want to be the cutesy things that I want him to be. So I got him a raccoon costume and loved it!
Dimitri seemed to think it was alright, but his favorite part of Halloween was definitely the candy.
Is this the cutest little raccoon you’ve ever seen?
