We wanted to send out another quick update! Our visit today was the best yet. He smiled when he saw us and engaged in playing with us very quickly. He also “babbled” much more than any other day–he just says his sounds and looks at us and then smiles. He and Jon got a little snuggle time today as well. He is quickly learning how fun and adventurous daddy is as he got flown around the tiny room like an airplane and got several rides on Daddy’s shoulders! The more comfortable he gets, the more adventurous he gets as well. We spent much of our visit today chasing him as he crawled toward the door just laughing and looking for Jon to come and grab him and move him away. He is still not at all sure about being outside. He acts very differently when we take him outside. We took him out again today for about 10 minutes and he just looked scared the entire time. He did not smile and did not seem to enjoy it. Once we got to the little hallway where we usually play, though, he was all smiles. He has also “learned” about the few toys we brought. He can do the stacking with the pots and seems to grow tired of them more quickly…so we introduced an empty water bottle–every child’s dream toy. Like every other child we know, he loves it!
We signed a few more papers for the lawyer today. We still do not know anything yet about our court date, but are praying each day that the details fall into place for a Friday court date. We would love for you to join us in that prayer.
We watched a great teaching today on financial stewardship and it was a good reminder for us. How blessed we are to be able to be in God’s word and hear sound teaching so far away! We hope to listen to the sermon from WCRBC sometime tomorrow as well.
Well, we are about to watch our nightly movie here and do some laundry in the sink! We will update again tomorrow.
