More Baby Pics

Check out that hair-do too.I managed to actually catch Arosha smiling and laughing over this weekend on “film”. It’s another important skill that he mastered well enough at this point to demonstrate to a wider audience.

Mega-smile.And don’t forget to check out that hair-do. Arosha seems to actually be growing some hair. It’s still a while until he really needs a hair comb, but it’s better than nothing.

Doctor Visit

Aroshka is turning 4 months tomorrow and today we had our monthly checkup with our doctor. Everything is going well. Aroshka measured 27 inches and weighted in at 16lb and 10oz. Per baby-center calculator that places him in 90-95% height-wise and 50-75% weight-wise.

Мы с Арошкой.And here we are just before going to the doctor. Yes, I just woke up. No, Arosha never sleeps. Kidding. He actually woke up only 3 times this night. By our standards that’s pretty darn good. )

Arosha — 4 Months

Arosha is sleeping in Alena's lap. Taken on December 8th.Today Arosha-gorosha is turning 4 months old. Danya wrote about our weight/height statistics, so I won’t repeat it. I can only say that I’m delighted that I produce enough milk to satisfy our little man! )

I started to read about solids introduction and want to buy a few appliances for making baby food at home (mainly hand blender and steamer pot insert). I plan to follow AAP recommendations and will start him at around 6 months.

A portion of Arosha's possessions.Arosha started rolling over consistently over the past few days. He only does it from back to tummy though, and I have to flip him the other way when he gets tired. He also tries to crawl, but does not have the strength to do it just yet.

Arosha is becoming more fun to be around. ) He smiles a lot, and even laughs from time to time. He cries much less than in the beginning, and takes longer naps during the day. He wakes up a few times at night still, but at least it takes much less effort to put him back to sleep after feeding him now than a few months back.

Talking to dad.By the way, we received Arosha’s birth certificate in the mail right before going to our Shenandoah trip. This time around, it does not have any mistakes (first time they messed up the gender, and we had to refile). )

Zhanna keeps supplying us with different children books. I love reading to Arosha. ) Too bad Amazon doesn’t have any books in Russian for Kindle (for the future, when Aaron will actually understand what it is I am reading).

Sleeping.Also, another bit of exciting news today is that my mom got a visa! She’ll come on December 16th (which is next week!) and will stay with us for 3 months. I am very happy with this development — I only saw my mom once during the last 8.5 years and miss her very much.

KVN 2010

КВН.Majority of you either forgot or never heard of this old Russian game (TV show) that is going to turn 50 next year, but Alёna and I keep watching it still when we get a chance. Today we were watching the 2nd semi-final game of 2010 and this year at the end of last round each team was supposed to finish with a short video clip.

We found to be well done and pretty funny. You do not need to understand Russian to watch them, but I’m not sure if they are going to funny for our local friends — give it a try. To those who do know the game though — you might enjoy these as much as we did.

First one is a link to a video done by a team from Kazakhstan. The setting is that Gusman is visiting Kazakhstan and this is his video. Probably makes it funnier when you know who Gusman is. I couldn’t find the link to the clip itself, so just scroll to a 2nd half of it.

The next one was our favorite — done by a team from Krasnodar. This one probably should be funny to everyone. If you’re going to watch only one of these — watch this one.

Another one worth mentioning is the one done by a team from Omsk. It’s not funny, but is well done and is interesting.
