Settling in in such a nice way!

Well, Toan is a happy camper! And we are so happy he is with us! He started to sleep through the night a few nights ago, no more waking up 12-15 times a night, crying in despair. He sleeps between mom and dad and no, we are not spoiling him. He is building his trust in us, and there will be a lot of time to try to get him to sleep on his own. For now, he is sleeping, so are we and everyone is happy and rested!

He is exploring his surroundings at an increased pace with every day passing by. He is spending more and more time on the floor, crawling on all fours, getting stuck under the kitchen table, or going on stroller rides with his sisters while mom is catching up with folding laundry or what nots. I know for a fact now that everything will be just fine. I had a hard time believing it last week, it was just too new and unsettling.

I got his blood test results today and he just needs to take iron supplements for 3 months, a pleasant surprise! Other than that, everything is normal! Yeah! He will be starting occupational therapy shortly and should go under surgery for his undescended testes soon, a minor thing I am told.

We celebrated his first birthday over the weekend. His birthday was actually a month ago but anyhow, we took the time to sing Happy Birthday and give him his presents. He loved the singing part so much that we had to do it again. This little guy is learning so much so fast, it's amazing to see him go, he is so intelligent. A beautiful gift to this family!
