Day 4

Ok, I'm not going to keep posting for 4 people. :) Some of the lurkers need to respond or I am holding the pics hostage(plus I need to buy more internet time). Yes I was at a Lufthansa office here, unless they operate on their own. I can relax now that I have tickets, but you may want to confirm again next week. Alihan is great, but he had a few meltdowns yesterday. He screamed bloody murder during his bath, but I was pretty much expecting that. This mornings bath was a bit better. He is a great kids and actually follows directions. It won't take the kids long to corrupt this. I believe we are going to the embassy tomorrow, so we may go few a few walks today. Please forward Marsha the Golden Rule stuff, as she is having a panic attack about her flights. They pretty much told her she can't come back to Bishkek to fly out, so she needs some help. Alihan slept great and he is a big eater, although he looks a bit malnourished. If there are more replies later, I will try to download some pictures.

PLEEEASE!!! You have no idea how obsessive I have become about checking your blog! Shoot, I was up tossing and turning last night just thinking about you picking the little guy up. I want to see that adorable little guy with his DADDY! Don't make me come to WI to kick your rump ;)

Pictures, pictures, Jyly wants pictures! Jyly screamed for her first bath and first potty. Now she loves the bath and tells me when she needs to potty. I am so glad you finally got there and picked up your boy. Good luck with everything and have a safe trip home.

Ok--well Lufthasna doesn't even fly out of Bishkek. So, having an office there makes no sense. See if they will take you to the office in Almaty.
I'll forward to Marcia--but you have the info. right there on your yahoo email my dear.

Ted, four readers is all you need if they're quality. And you know we are quality. Glad all is well. I remember Konstantin's first meltdown really well. It was at the Yurta. He'd never been to a restaurant before and was afraid of it. The second time was at the beach. It wasn't pretty but now he's wonderful. Glad all is well!

PUH-LEEEEEEEEESE!!!

Hi Ted! My name is Betsy and my husband and I are adopting from Kyrgyzstan too! I am ready to confess.... I AM A LURKER! I have been checking your blog constantly and watched the days go by as you got closer and closer to picking up your son. I'd love to see pictures and promise to comment even though you have NO CLUE who I am :) :) :)

YOu better post those pictures or your poor Mom is gonna have a meltdown!! I too have been tossing and turning at night.....thinking about you and Alihan. Let him help you with the computer I bet he will like that. I can't wait to see him.
Have you both in my prayers.
Love Mom....
PS does Alihan understand Russian so I can tell him I am BaBa or babushka and he will know?
