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.

17 Mo's old and 4 Mo's home

Time flies when you are having fun. Our little boy is not so little any more - he is growing and becoming smarter and prettier (at least, that's what we think :-) by the day. He just turned 17 months last week the pictures to show that he is not the little baby we brought home 4 months ago (not to mention all the stuff he knows and does now, including tricks he tries to play on us).
He is doing great with his grandma at home. They have a really good schedule of eating, sleeping and going to the park every day.
We can’t wait for the hot Californian summer so we can start going to the beach with him (right now we only go to the dog beach and Vanie is totally bundled up b/c of the still windy and somewhat chilly ocean mornings).
We will have his 18 month checkup before Memorial Day and will know more about his growth. One thing I know - he eats and sleeps well but also uses up A LOT of energy walking and running around a lot all day long (we never really use a stroller when we go to the mall, park or just anywhere) so I don’t think it’s even possible for him to gain a lot of weight.
Enjoy the most recent shots.

  1. Oh my goodness, he is sooooo cute and so much bigger than when we saw him in December!!! He's growing up so fast!! Alex, too, is a "man on the move" ALL the time....he is so full of energy that he is hardly gaining weight either!

    I love to check in with your blog to see how the 3 of you are doing, and it sounds like you are doing great!
