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.

Why Yvan Alexander

By the way, for those who don’t know, this is why we are naming him Yvan Alexander:
Yvan – named after my dad and also a Bulgarian Saint we had promised to named him after
Alexander – after Alexander Makedonski (Alexander the Great) who is Jason’s role model.
We figured this kid has been able to survive and strive for the 1st year of his life alone in the home (obviously with a lot of help from the caregivers and the doctors there) but he is a hero to us already and deserves a name of a hero.
We call him Vanie (pronounced same as a “bunny” with a “v”) and will leave it up to him to change it later on to whatever he likes. Maybe he will call himself Temujin!!! hehehehe
