Been awhile since I posted. Here is a video from the chinese buffet, one of his favorite places to eat. He's eating a fortune cookie and laughing at daddy acting silly while walking back to the table.

It's been a year since we picked up Drake at the orphanage! This last year has gone by really fast and Drake has grown so much! He was 24 lbs and 34.5 inches tall last year and now he is 35.4 lbs and 38 inches tall

He came off bus today with bear hat from school. I was surprised he still had it on. He didn't want to take it off for nap time. He also came home in some other boys jacket, lol.

Drake is learning about farms at Early Childhood Education. When he first came home he couldnt color at all. We don't think he'd ever been given a crayon or marker. Now he can scribble! Such a cute picture I had to share!! He has also learned nose, feet, tail, ears on the dogs so he was already a leg up on this assignment! :-)
