Five days out of the orphanage. Five days of being fed with an eye dropper because he was too weak to suck. All credit to the people who had him first who fed him round the clock every two hours! The first day I got him (day 4), I tried a bottle and he successfully sucked! Amazing!
Day 9 out of the orphanage. He still sucks on his hand but less so that before. Hand sucking is something that hungry children do. We have had to gently remove his hands from his mouth when he was taking a bottle-it's just a habit of self comforting,
Heavily supervised tummy time! He can not lift up his head but loves being on his tummy.
Crying! Fussing! Expressing displeasure-these are all good things because it means his energy is developing. He still doesn't have many tears.
Keeping up with the Chinese language! Paul used to do the same thing with our daughter.
Day by day he grows. Yesterday his foot finally responded to being rubbed. He has along way to go but step by step he is making progress.
