Happy Birthday, Liev!

According to Russian tradition, it’s bad luck to celebrate before your birthday. Thus, we scheduled our weekend party for next Sunday. But! We had to give the birthday boy a little surprise!


 Whoa, this thing is scary…  
….but sort of interesting.
Now how do I open this???
 Twenty minutes and fourteen attempts later…   What on earth is this?!  
Wow!!! My very own Gorilla! Cool! Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa!!!

The highlight of Liev’s birthday! A plush gorilla rocker! His favorite book is “Goodnight, Gorilla,” so now he has his very own gorilla companion!

I fear it will not be long before he outgrows his friend. Liev is a humongous baby!
