Get to hear the fat lady sing
Tuesday, December 04, 2007
We're having a blast. Andrei is doing so well and really getting use to us. I'm sure however the flight to Moscow will be a little rough for him. But he really seems to get tremendous comfort when Stef holds him.

We bought him some little Russian snow boots today. We never got a chance to measure his feet on trip #1, so we didn't really know his size and just decided to buy those here. I also really wanted to have him wear something truly Russian that we could have as a keepsake.

We're heading out to the opera tonight. Novosibirsk has the largest opera house in all of Russia. And since we attend the San Francisco Ballet each season we're really looking forward to this.

We head out to Moscow really early Friday morning. Stef wants to wait till we have his visa in our hands before we post any pictures (which even I think is a bit over paranoid) so I may try to work on her a bit.

    Are you taking Andrei to the opera? (that could be interesting! :)) or is he still staying at the baby house?

    Have a nice time! We went to the ballet at the Mirinsky (?sp) Theater in St. Petersburg and it was really amazing.

    While I can't wait to see a picture of the three of you, I understand Stef's wanting to wait... Some families even wait posting pics until they are back in the US!!
    What ever you decide, I'll be watching -- COngrats Again!! Glad to hear everything is going well.
