It's amazing the small moments we take for granted when we watch our new 5 1/2 year old son who has obviously never been on a swing, touched a dog, eaten an orange, tried to draw a straight line, watched tv, done a puzzle but he can fold blankets and towels to military precision, use chopsticks, wash dishes, help his baby sister with anything she needs. The kids are all doing great together, much better than I could have hoped for. Ty is a real people person, and he goes out of his way to be kind to the other kids. He is my little shadow around the house and seems to really look out for me.. it is really cute. It is really tough to realize how little he has been exposed to and in many ways he act much younger than his 5 years, and in some ways he seems wise beyond his years. I'm sure he will change so much in the next few months. Something is really off with his tummy, I'm not sure if it has to do with being sensitive to milk, or maybe just the stress of the changes but he has a really weak belly...looking forward to figuring it out :(
I have been horrible at taking photos... I can't even seem to get it on my radar right now. He did get the cutest little hair cut.. but still haven't taken a photo.
|Last thing we did in Beijing... so fun|
|Our first and only family photo...yeah I know, I'm gonna have to work on that :O )|
|Ty is absolutely fascinated my our dog, Maggie. He was nervous at first but now can't seem to get enough of her every move. His other favorite.. the water dispenser on the 'fridge...who woulda thought?|
|Jack couldn't wait for a brother to play video games with... too bad Ty has .7 seconds of an attention span for it, we have to take the batteries out of the controller because he just isn't ready... He doesn't seem to mind,,, yet.|
