Today is a bittersweet day.  Our little guy is celebrating his fourth birthday in China without us.  I wish so badly that he were here with us opening presents and blowing out candles and chasing balloons around the house.  But he isn’t and we will have to wait a while longer before we meet him.  So, we are going to celebrate him today and hope that he is celebrating in China.  Tonight we will have cake and ice cream and sing Happy Birthday and I am sure someone Dragonfly will blow out the candles for him.  I can take comfort, though, in the fact that this will be the VERY LAST birthday he will celebrate without his forever family!!!

We received new updated pictures and measurements from our wonderful agency.  He is already changing so much!  The pictures were just taken last week so they are very recent.  Although he and Dragonfly are six months apart, they are very close in size.  He weighs one pound more than her and is two inches taller than her.
