A very special day

Time goes by so quickly, humans say...
Today is a very special day for Mom and Dad:
they met baby Jerome for the first time exactly
one year ago.
Their lives has changed so much since that
precious moment!
Look a him, in their Beijing hotel room,
so small in his orphanage's clothes...
At the time, he was still drinking for the bottle
and he had very bad skin, but
he already was a sweet, curious and mischievous
little boy!
Look at him today, playing in grandpa's backyard!
He has grown up in so many ways!
He now calls me "Touty" and wants to know
where I am all the time.
His best friend is Fino:
Jerome is obsessed with trying to put
his harness on!
Little Fino is very patient (most of the time...).
Clearly, our big brother needs to go to
daycare next year!
Jerome still has many follow-ups to go to
at the hospital. We wish him the best!
Also, he has now officially entered his "no" phase,
which can be quite funny sometimes.
And let's not forget his endless energy.
He just never stops!

You are the best brudder we can have, dear Jerome!

Stars for a day

A few months ago, in early June,
Mom took us for a ride to the
doggie daycare where we sometimes go.
Another fun day at the gym?
Not this time!
Instead, we were welcomed
by a very nice man
who was starting a new career as a photographer.
We would be his models for the day.

Mom wanted to have a picture of both
Fino and I to use as a header for the blog.
It turned out that we were not
calm enough to pose together.

Strike the pose!
Fino, you go first!
My turn!
What a great experience we had!
