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.

Enjoying the Doctor’s office … NOT SO MUCH

This is actually from a the beginning of the month. Vanie had his 18th month checkup. Everything was great until we had to go in. he cried hysterically even when they were taking his measurements… what am I saying.. he was crying hysterically even when the nurse would look at him. It’s probably because he gets shots every single time we are there.
He starts saying “bye” and blowing kisses as soon as he sees his doctor - his way of saying “go away”.
The good thing is that Vanie is growing like crazy:
-Height: 82.5 cm or 32.5 inches – 56% - this is almost 5 cm (2 inches) in 3 months
-Weight: 10.6 kg. or 23.6 lbs. – 19% - less than 2 lbs in 3 months – not great but he runs a lot so it’s hard for him to gain weight even when he eats well
these are from a month ago and he has already grown another centimeter since then.

We are back at the doctor’s office in 2-3 months for blood tests to check if he been cleared of the hep C antibodies.

Vanie hates going to the doctor’s so much that now he cries even when I try to measure him at home. Here are a few shots from a month ago:
