This photo is from the batch of new pictures our dear translator got for us. I wish you could see his little face fixed in concentration at his masterpiece. Can you believe this boy of ours is only 27 months old from the sight of this picture? I can hear his caregiver, Lala saying "show mama and papa how you hold the pen. Show them you are a good boy!" As my bloggy friend Amy would say "He's brilliant!" (Of course he is!) One of my mom's friend that works at her school evaluates children for gifted and readiness for kindergarten, noted his other hand, flat against the paper. She said that skill was more impressive than his "pen skills". I was so impressed with the way he was holding the pen even holding it with his right hand (He is left handed) I didn't even think about the other hand. But I guess this makes him doubly brilliant (Of course!)
Thought we could all use a little pick me up. Hang in there my brilliant boy.


  1. Charlie is double brilliant! I can't wait to see all the cute little cards his crafty Mommy & him make for Grammy.

  2. How wonderful that you get updated pictures.......I can't wait to see his beautiful little face very very soon!!! Hang in there!

  3. Yes yes yes, he is brilliant! (coming from your left-handed friend!) :) How exciting to get new pictures!!!

    The suspense of not seeing his precious face is killing me... I can only imagine how you must feel. Where is your court date?!?! Ack!

  4. So glad you get these pictures. Are we getting close to the end of the six week vaca? Any sense of whether you'll have to wait until the treaty is signed? Or maybe it is close enough to finished?
