5 months!

Today we've been with William Michael for 5 months. It's seems hard to believe in many ways...he's come so very far. We all have as a family. We've had a busy month of December getting ready for Christmas, Grace's school activities and several appointments for Will. He's been screened for speech through our school district and will most likely qualify(we'll find out in January). Will had his 3 year well check up with our pediatrician on Wednesday and he's gained 1.25 lbs. and grown an inch in height! Our pediatrician was extremely pleased with how he's doing attachment wise and we are too. William even gave his doctor a kiss and a hug goodbye as we left.I love this little boy so much...he brings so much joy to our family!

What a wonderful 5 months it's been, I'm sure. I know because on Tuesday we will celebrate our 6 month anniversary of having our sweet Ella in our family and have been blessed beyond measure with our darling child, who has absolutely blossomed in that time.

Congratulations on your special day, and your sweet little Santa's helper couldn't be any cuter. I just cannot wait to see his reaction to the hooplah on Thursday!

Oh yeah, you can stop sending the snow across the lake anytime. We have plenty now!

What an absolutely handsome little guy! I can see why you love him so much!

How sweet, your blog is heartfelt! By any chance was he born in You Xian County?

Happy Holidays,
