happy birthday to you!

Today we celebrate Bruk’s first birthday!

We actually celebrated with him while we were there, knowing that we would be in back in NC without him on his birthday, July 30th.

This sweet set up came from one of the guys who works at the guest house, Alex.  We told him we were celebrating Bruk’s 1st birthday and an immediate smile came to his face. He asked us to wait for him in the dinning area and he would be back soon.  A few minutes later he came in with the fruit basket [we brought the candles from home], cookies and a special present for Bruk.

Bruk loved his truck, but he was happy even if we gave him a bottle top.


There’s so much more where that came from, but for now we’ll just give you a glimpse of his sweet little personality. We are hoping that our case will be submitted to Embassy this week or next. Until then, you will find us watching his videos and laughing/crying as we remember our time with baby B.
