Happy Day!







Today was another fantastic day! It was a free day for us so we hung around the hotel all day, just getting to know more about each other. Pudding has really come out of his shell today. He is a funny little boy that loves to smile and laugh. He was a little subdued upon waking; I'm sure he is still very confused about where he is and who is with. After a big breakfast the smiles started and they lasted all day. We pulled out the stacking cups and after he knocked down the tower of cups we got our first real laughs. We made such progress in eye contact with him today too. Yesterday he avoided looking at us in the eye for too long; today he was studying us intently and started to mimic silly faces I was making. I know it's early in the game but I feel like we're making great progress in bonding. Tonight at supper we let him walk around our table and a waitress came over to play with him and pick him up. He played with her for a few minutes but as soon as Stu held out his arms, Pudding came running back to him with a smile. Speaking of supper, I am SO impressed with his appetite. This kid eats anything we put in front of him: congee, fruit, pork ribs, rice, french toast, sausage, celery and onions...the list goes on and on. The only thing that he has turned down so far is a tomato, and I think that is more due to the consistency rather than the taste. Maybe Pudding will teach HotDog how to eat her vegetables.

Wow, it looks like he likes his bath more than the Russian heritage kiddos do :) I am glad he is doing so well, sounds like a great eater!

So awesome to see how well he is adjusting! Karys was 2.5 when we got her and IMHO I think it is one of the best ages for adoption. Karys adjusted so well. I love that you call him "Pudding" that is what we call Eliana sometimes except it's "Puddin".
