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.

Our new family member

Please welcome our newest family member Yvan Alexander, 12 months and 22 days old.
I saw his adoption certificate with my eyes today … with our names on it. We are officially his parents and he is our son. I wonder if he knows what he is getting himself into. hehehe
I will try to post some updates of what we have been up to (now that i can share HIS details with everyone) in the last few days and how we have made progress but now here are a few pictures of the little bandit,- and yes, he really is one.

Yvan Alexander Maznev (Vanie)

Vanie loves to eat - probably one of his favorite things to do.

And he loves to sleep and nap (sleeps 10-11 hrs through the night and then some during the day).

And he loves to play - very active little boy!
