5 Months with Baby J

Wow! This month has flown by! It feels like I was just writing his 4 month post! 

He is getting so big and turning into such a big boy! No more baby! Anything the big kids can do, he wants to do! 

He loves the drums! And everything is a drum to him. He also loves to dance. Every morning he wants me to put on some music and he "tells" me that by shaking his butt! It is so cute! 

J loves when Lucy comes to play! They play really good together, until they don't! Then they each need a little time out. 

He loves to be outside! He also loves his daddy! So when Andrew was working on his truck, J loved being right there with him! 

He is getting a little picky and finicky about what he will eat. So when he decided that he liked ranch dressing, I let him dip stuff in it. I never thought he would go face first licking it off if the plate! 

He is so busy, and never stops moving! 

He loves speech therapy! He has so much fun playing with Ms. Gina! And he is doing so well! 

He is happiest when he has a ball in his hand! If he can't find a ball, any sports equipment will do. He also turns everything into a bat, and will try to hit all sorts of balls. The other day he had a small bouncy ball and a drum stick, and he was doing his best to hit the ball with the "bat". And he actually succeeded a few times! And he can throw a ball incredibly well! We will have to sign him up for baseball as soon as he is old enough. 

He is adjusting wonderfully to being in our family! He still has major separation anxiety when I leave, but we are working on it. 

Every morning he asks where daddy is and where Michael is. He misses them both so much during the day. He gets so excited when it's time to go get Michael from school. And whenever my phone rings, he yells, "daddy!!" And anytime the dogs bark at a car outside, he does the same thing! He can't wait for daddy to get home from work! 

We are blessed to have in our family! 

And just a note about the adoption,  we have a visit each month from his social worker, his adoption worker, and his guardian ad litem. Each month I ask about TPR, and each month they don't know anything. They had originally told us to expect a year for everything to be final. Well, it's been 5 months and NOTHING has happened! So, we aren't holding our breath. We are just ready for something to happen!
