|The apples of my eye! We took the gang apple picking. This was a first for Hunny Bunch and he really enjoyed it!|
Things are going well here. We are waiting on a call from the children's hospital for an appointment for Hunny Bunch to have an MRI done. Once in a while he asks if he will be all better like his sister. He also asked if she cried. :o(. He understands a lot more at 4 than I thought he would. We are also waiting for an appointment to have his four year assessment done. His immunization records are being translated now.
He's only been home for 3 1/2 months but it seems like so much longer! He has completely made this his home, he loves us and every day it shows. He is still sleeping great and speaks 100% perfect English with much more understanding that I ever thought was possible for a child here for this short of time. He talks about his Aya(foster Mom) and his YeYe(foster dad)...he loved her but thought his YeYe was cranky and bossy. He needs to be challenged and is starving for information so I started doing a preschool program with him and he's like a little sponge! He and Sugar get along marvelously. She adores him and likewise. They play so well together. Sugar had greater challenges that she faced when in China and as a result is emotionally younger than her current age. We are working with her and have allowed her to regress to get caught up on the nurturing she so desperately missed while in China. I believe
that's part of the reason they get along so well. Emotionally they are very close in age. We explained Christmas to Hunny Bunch and he is looking forward to it. He also can't wait for snow. He has seen snow in Nanfeng but only a little so he"s in for a real treat!
We had a great weekend. I celebrated my birthday Friday. Hubby wasn't home but my daughter, sister and mom took us out for Chinese food. (No I didn't make myself cake....LOL) Hubby got home Saturday after Chinese school (we went apple picking with them too!) and he took us out for Chinese food again then for supper also!! Mom and my sister got me a backpack for my camera with all the special compartments. My hubby got me an IPad that I'm still trying to figure out. When I woak up that morning I got the kidlings up and rather than singing Happy Birthday to me they sang Jesus Loves Me and it brought me to tears. Here's to another year of being blessed by my 3 children and grandbutton! I love my family so much!!
