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!
