Jackson is so smart! Although he is small, we often forget that he is almost 2 1/2 years old. He LOVES books! We know that he has been read to. He was very quiet this morning after his bath and then I gave him his book to look at. His eyes lit up and before I knew it, he was turning the pages and babbling away. We still are not sure what he can hear. We know that he heard Kurt sneeze really loud! When he wants to read, he will get a book and make his way to you and show you the book and turn around and back-up into your lap.
We went to Wal-Mart today (yes, we traveled all the way to China, just to go to Wal-Mart)bought Pampers, shoes for Jackson, a Chinese New Year decoration for him and foam blocks. He was so excited when we opened the package of blocks. He sat and played for a long time with them. He was even stacking them with Kurt. When he was done playing he INSISTED that HE be the one to clean them up. We have seen much evidence that he was raised well over the past year and a half with his foster family. We also received everything back that we sent in his care package. He also new what everything was. When we get to Guangzhou, we will develop the pictures from the disposable cameras.
