It is absolutely amazing that he understand just about anything we say to him. He's picked up understanding English so so quick! I love toddler brains! They truly are little sponges. He's babbling a lot and making purposeful sounds, says mama and dada, ball, hi (which he says as soon as you walk into his room...so sweet!), bye, yes (ya) and will make the syllable sounds of many other words. I'm also pretty sure he's said Dora as well ;) as it's Hannah's current fav.
When we came home he was walking, but fell after just a few steps, now he's full speed ahead! His growth and development is right on track, if not ahead in some aspects, which is awesome! He really came from a great baby home and I'm so grateful for the care he was given. He attached very quickly and has only gotten stronger. He's been in the church nursery a few times and cry's appropriately! And is super excited to see us when we pick him up. So so happy about the attachment progress!
Since he's been home he's had lots of Dr visits, blood work, and shots, but he's done so well with them all. He loves the zoo, swinging, and just playing! It's so neat seeing him learn basic puzzles and how to eat with a fork and basic things we sometimes take for granted. He does well when we go out to eat and eats just about anything we give him which is so nice! He loves milk, which is such a change from Hannah. He's sleeping great and loves to take bath's finally!
I know there is a ton more to tell, but I'll just post pics now. He is such a joy and we love him so much and we are so blessed to have him in our family!!! We have our first post placement report meeting this coming Saturday already! Crazy!! Before we know it, it'll be our last. Enjoy the pics!!
