It appears Leah and I have found our second child. His name is Konstantin (Kostya for short) and he's 13 months old. I doubt we'll keep his name the same... it's so hard to find first names that work with Schwartzrock.

If everything goes well, we'll be traveling to Russia in August. As many of you know, we adopted our first son, Yuri, from Russia three years ago. Here's an early photo of him fascinated with the flames in the stove, wearing his favorite boots. To prove we don't let him run around the house naked all of the time, I've attached a proper photo of the whole family.

I was commissioned to create these images for three large banners for a friend's church. Apparently not everyone was excited about these huge banners at first, but in the end, the congregation didn't want them taken down. I can't tell you how nice that is to hear.
