Matthew Monday: Matthew & Mommy at the Orphanage

This was taken during our bonding period at the orphanage in Shymkent, Khazakhstan in May or June of 2010.  Matthew is about eight or nine months old there.  I post this because when I had Matthew out today he had a winter hat on with a strap just like that.  Only thing today he was chewing on the strap.  They keep the babies dressed really warm at that orphanage.  It was already warm inside the room.  My wife probably wishes he would listen to her now as he is there.

    1. He was a fat baby! You can't really tell with that jacket. I'll have to show you some other infant pictures. They took care of their babies very well there.

  3. I love this picture Manny.

    If memory serves correctly, there were a few other pictures from the orphanage during the adoption process and in each one Matthew sported quite a hat!?

    Hugs to the little one.
