Cold in Astrakhan

"I can't put my arms down mom"
It has been very cold that last few days. We went out for a walk on Wednesday because the sun was shining. Nolen was bundled up so much he reminded us of the kid from the movie A Christmas Story. We had a good outing. He really likes to ride in his new stroller. We ended the outing with lunch out at his first restaraunt. We ate at a small cafe near the hotel. I do not know the name of it because it is in Russian. They only serve lunch and it is cafeteria style, so we can point to the food we want. He ate a whole plate of mashed potatoes and gravy.
The little guy can eat like a grown man. We are having a difficult time determining if he has had enough to eat because he always wants more. We have not found any food that he doesn't like. He will eat whatever we give him.
He is happy most of the day. The hardest part is going to sleep.
