Shots, Crib and an Update!

Yesterday I had my first round of what I lovingly call "adoption shots."  Yuck.  I don't know which one took it toll, but I am home sick today.  But the sore arm, headache, loss of appetite, inability to sleep and dizziness are all worth it.  Jae is worth it.  Thursday I go back for blood work to see if I need the last 2 doses of Hepatitis B.  Hope they have more of those cute sparkly band-aids they gave me yesterday...a sucker would also be nice.

The crib came today.  The nursery got a lot smaller this afternoon. 

But the best news is:  we got a surprise update today!  We can request 2 updates while we are waiting for Jae and this one came as a complete surprise as we haven't requested anything!  Nice.  That means we still have our 2 requests to cash in at later dates.  Jae is now 7 months old, weighing in at 16.6 lbs and eating good.  He is starting to get some solid foods and likes sweet potatos, apples and bananas the best.  :)  Pictures were also taken, but they haven't arrived yet.  Our social worker will forward them on as soon as the agency has them.  We will be checking the mailbox a little more eagerly in the next few weeks as a result!

  1. Hi, I'm going out of town for a funeral, but I'm going to try and write some stuff later about food. Lois

  2. Angie,
    I love reading this blog. I am so happy and excited for you! Your blogs about Jae are always happy news in a rather trying world, and the fact that you stay so positive thru all of the ups and downs... well, it is refreshing! You deserve this happiness...

    Lots of love and wishes,
    Christi Linder
