I should explain the name of the blog “Little Temujin”.
Our little one is not the typical blue eyed and blond Russian kid. Actually, he has big brown eyes, long lashes and brown (seems curly) hair. He is definitely mixed but we are not sure what races. So, in absence of a true family tree, we decided that he is a distant relative to the legendary Genghis Khan whose original name was Temujin.

Dec. 26th - Last night in Vladivostok

Not a good start today: Vanie woke up sick, no fever but he is coughing. Also, he was up at 6:30 today b/c he went to bed so early yesterday. Fortunately he ate normally and had two long naps. We got cough meds and nose drops delivered to the hotel and now the torture is on me to give to him. He threw a big tantrum when I tried the drops, threw his dinner bottle, cried for a while and didn’t want to finish dinner. I really hope he is better tomorrow.

Another big update today: he now stands up on his own without holding onto anything (once I make him) and freely walks a few steps towards me or the mirror or the laptop without falling down – no need of a wall. Isn’t that great!?! I really hope he is ready to walk by the time we get home. The funny part, if he hears music, he tries to dance/ shake while walking and ends up falling or walking sideways. It’s so funny. And I have to say that that mirror really distracts him. :-)

Another good thing: WE LEAVE FOR MOSCOW TOMORROW. Big YAY! I just can’t wait to leave this place. It was snowing all night and morning and we got about 4 additional inches but that seems to be it.

My parents and sis are on their way to Moscow as I type this and will be waiting there for us.

This will probably my last post for a while until I get back home as I don’t know if I will be able to post updates from Moscow.

I think I’ve handled being a mom pretty well so far but the big test will be tomorrow’s 9 ½ hours flight.

Ok, off to finish packing. Can’t wait to see my family and for everyone to meet our new addition.
