He really is growing
I have thought lately that Vlado looked taller. I thought maybe I was wrong because his shorts are still big on him (at least in the waist). So, last night I decided to measure him to see. He was 44.5 inches. When we got him, he was 38 inches. In less than 9 months, he has grown 6.5 inches!!! And his face is starting to look more mature. I was looking at the book Honey had made for me for Vlado's adoption, and he looked like such a baby in those pictures.
This picture was taken on Dec 5th...just 3 days after we got home with our boy. Doesn't he look so little? And that look on his face was normal at that point. He was so unsure of this new place. :(
This was taken Aug 18th as we were driving home from my parents' house. That's just a little over 8 months between pictures yet it seems like he has matured a lot more than that. He's not a baby anymore. He was a baby at 6, but he's a big boy at 7. :)
