    • Thank you! And congratulations to you also. We are sure Jack will enjoy being a big brother. When are you due? You’re not out on your blog?

      The picture idea was ours and then we searched for artists who advertised matryoshka artwork on etsy. We order a print and used the proof for the announcement.

      Oh, and by the way, your good friends and travel buddies are our social sponsors in Chisinau.

      • So adorable – and thank you! No, not out yet (unless someone sees this…) :) I’m only 11 weeks. We love the Balls! They’re so awesome. I’ve heard great stuff about chisinau from them (although I suspect they’re the kind of people who would have fun anywhere).

        • Yeah, we’re big fans of theirs also. Chisinau surprised us with how great the post morale is. The two of us have slightly different takes on it, but that may owe a lot to the fact that only one of us is a native Russian speaker. One thing we agree on is that we are glad we left Nairobi when we did. We loved it there but are also appreciating having a quiet, sleepy assignment for a change.

    • Musik, if I had known that this is what it would take to get you to leave us comments we might have gotten down to business a lot sooner.

    y’all better get ready for me to lavish all sorts of overindulgent love on this squirt.

    i’m talking brownies for breakfast, s’mores for lunch, puddle jumping, animal planet documentary marathons, friendship bracelets, aluminum foil sculpture projects, bed time stories that extend bed time past normal bed time, making potions and monsters with a million googly eyes and more!!!!!

    • Sounds like we have a “best aunt” competition in the making.

  7. Aaahhhh congratulations you two! So happy for you and excited for this next adventure in your lives. The biggest one yet :) Hope I get to photograph the little matryoshka someday! Hugs xoxo (Agreed, that graphic is adorable. You two are so creative.)

    • Thanks, Whit! We’ve decided to deliver in Portland, so actually you could see the big bump and the little matryoshka. I will be in Portland from mid January til mid April. I’ll email about getting together.
