Lovin' Life

Jackson is so full of life!

He is settling in beautifully!

He keeps us in stitches daily! He is very much like his BIG brother!

He is into EVERYTHING!!!!

He can now spontaneously sign and use correctly the following signs: please, more, eat, daddy, poo-poo, stinky.

He understands the signs for these and also the signs for no, mommy, wait, sit-down, dog, sleep, all-done.

His Giardia test came back negative. This is a very contagious parasite that many of the kids come home with.

He is now officially on our health insurance, so we are waiting for our appointment to the Pediatric ENT. More than likely the first visit will be a consult with a general diagnosis, but then it would not surprise me if we have to make another appointment for the MRI/CT Scan. I'm not sure which one they will do.

I think we're all on the same time zone now.

We will be getting his hair cut soon.

He doesn't like for me to leave the room, but we've been working on this. He did very well staying here at the house for an hour with my mom while I went and picked the kids up from school.

He loves to be tickled. He will lay on the floor and lift up his shirt and pat his belly to tell you that he wants you to tickle him.

e still loves to eat and he has enjoyed all of the yummy meals that our friends have been bringing over! Thanks, guys!!! You have all been so generous and thoughtful!!

He asks everyday, numerous times a day, to go and see the dog. This is BIG! He is still afraid of the dog, but everyday is a new day!

We bought a crib and a changing table. Hopefully Kurt will be able to get it all together this weekend. It will be awhile before Jackson is sleeping on his toddler bed and we feel more comfortable with him contained! We will then start having Jackson nap in his room and then hopefully transition his nighttime sleeping to his room.

So much to get done today! The dust has collected since my in-laws left and we are so thankful for all that they did for us while we were gone!

I will try to post more often! Hopefully Kurt can figure out what's wrong with our desktop not being able to read our disc from the camera. I'm having to use the netbook, also, to complete the posts.

Last thought for today...the other day Jadon says to me, "Thank you for adopting Jackson!" It just melted this mommy's heart!
