Jia You, Little Baby!

Off to the doctor yesterday for a check-up.  We go every three months so that a report can be sent back to the orphanage as to our foster son's health.  I forgot to bring our camera to the doctor's yesterday but I did take these shots when we got home.

7.1 Kilograms and 56 centimeters.  Up from 3.3 kilograms in late August.  He can sit with support, roll from front to back and back to front. He reaches out when he wants to be held.  He says "Mama" (which tears at my heart a little).  He is very vocal.  He is happy, happy, happy.  He eats cereal, ground peas, carrots, sweet potato, chicken, Cheerio's and bananas.  He still developmentally and in size more like a six month old. But it's all progress and all good!

Here is part of the recipe for progress-the love of a big sister.  Elisabeth has been a trooper through all of this.  Her love for him is genuine and he adores her.  What a sweet sister she has been.

He's not quite a chunky as he looks in these pictures...he has on heavy long underwear underneath his outfit!
