What else could a boy need? A cool ride, yummy snacks, and a refreshing drink...fit for a prince!
Ready to roll...
Eli points at EVERYTHING!!! If only we knew what was going through that brain! He is very good at pointing to what he wants, but he also points at every other random thing! He is also very good a shaking his head "NO" very emphatically when he doesn't want something!
Eli had his 2nd appointment at the International Adoption Clinic last week. He had a hearing test, more labwork, and met with the developmental psychologist. Eli passed his hearing test with flying colors and no news is good news from the lab. So, at least we know he didn't bring home any parasites! Now we just have to wait for the results of his bloodwork to see if any of his vaccines need to be redone. It was great to meet with the psychologist, if only to confirm what we already know: Eli is transitioning very well. We will have a follow-up visit in 6 months. It is so wonderful to have this resource so close to home.
Eli has also transitioned to his crib wonderfully! We couldn't believe it! He still wakes up during the night, not every night. And, he usually falls asleep very quickly after waking up. He also started eating with silverware this week! It only took one meal for him to figure out how to use a fork and he loves it! We are still working on the spoon, but he is getting it. When we first started showing him how to use the fork, we would clap and hoop and holler whenever he successfully used his fork. Now, he has to clap after every bite! It is very cute, but makes mealtime a little longer!!
Unfortunately, we had to do another lice treatment on Friday. But, hopefully we got them all this time.
