They are so cute! And I'm glad to see that I wasn't crazy in thinking how tall Caleb was when I was there(compared to Raia). Do I see them holding hands? =-)

Precious!! I wonder where Caleb got all of that height!! He far surpasses Raia, doesn't he??? They look like they are enthralled with one another!! Can't wait to see Caleb, Jon and Carrie again!!

Actually, Caleb doesn't look that tall standing next to Raia. He's a little heavier and slightly taller, but we all think they're right about the same size. We'll have to try to get a photo of them standing side by side. . . if they'll hold still that long!

Here’s a photo to compare their heights. :-)

Adorable Babies!

I'm confused though. This is obviously not the same Caleb that's Jaan's buddy?

I'll get it straight eventually!

They are so cute!!! How do you pronounce "Raia"? RYE-uh...or RAY-uh??? Either one of those?


Phyllis said...

Yes, it's confusing. You should have seen Jaan trying to figure out who really was going to come visit us. Now he can confidently explain: "There are TWO Calebs in the world." :-)

We know two American families, both have sons named Caleb. The Beairds live in Naro-Fominsk, near Moscow. They have the three-year-old Caleb. The Dulins live almost 20 hours east of us in Perm. Their Caleb is a month younger than Raia. This was the first time we met him, but his parents are friends of ours from Will's home church.

(Raia's name is pronounced like Rye-uh. And in case anyone is curious, the J in Jaan sounds like a Y. :-)

Yeah for the height pic- I love when we get to see you too!! =) Beautiful picture of both you and Raia.
It's hard to believe that she is so big already. And even harder to believe that shortly I will have a little girl just like her! ;)
LOVE you all!

Thanks for explaining, Phyllis! I guess I was as confused as Jaan.

I hope their travel went well!
