Our October Update!

Today we received our October update on our son Daniel:
Here is what it says:


Daniel is on Bebelac-2 formula, which is for children over 6 months of age. He also eats porridge-like cereal 3 times a day. He also sometimes eats "regular" food such as rice and vegetables and injera.

SLEEPING

Daniel is a good sleeper and usually wakes once during the night for a bottle, and takes 2 naps during the day.

APPEARANCE/DEVELOPMENT

Daniel is SO adorable. He has light skin, big eyes, and a great smile. He is now walking everywhere, and climbing on all the furniture.

SOCIAL

Daniel has a big personality and is so fun. He loves to smile and laugh, and is very easy-going. He is a definite favorite of all the staff!

MEDICAL/SPECIAL NEEDS

Daniel has been healthy since the last update.

MEASUREMENTS

Current weight: 20 pounds
Height: 76 cm or 30 inches
Head circumference: 40.5

We also received a new picture! I can't wait to introduce Daniel to all of you! It is now October and courts should open in one week. We are hoping to travel one month from today! Please pray that all the court dates are successful for all the waiting families. It is time to bring our son home! Oh and by the way in our picture Daniel still has hair. There was a rumor that all the kids in the Transition House had their heads shaved!
