It’s been over a month since we have been home. Jordan is doing extremely well. Since day one he has slept through the night in his own room. He only cries when he’s needs changing or feeding. When he gets sleepy he hum’s. A typical day for Jordan begins with him waking up between 7:30 and 8:00. He eats breakfast and plays for a couple of hours. He gets a morning bath, and then he’s ready for his first nap. He sleeps for about two hours then he’s ready for lunch. He has fruit, veggies and formula for lunch and he eats very well. After lunch we practice crawling, standing, walking and do a lot of silly dancing. He’s so tired after play time that he’s ready for his second nap which is usually about an hour. After his second nap he plays on his mat and mostly entertains himself, while I watch HDTV. When daddy arrives home he feeds Jordan dinner and a bottle, then its bath time. Jordan loves bath time; I think his favorite thing is eating the bubbles. He generally eats everything he can get in his mouth. After bath time he gets a little snack mostly because he likes to eat when he notice others eating. Then it’s bedtime around 9:00 PM. When he wakes in the morning he plays in his crib with his blanket and rarely cries. He just waits patiently for me to come and get him. I don’t return to work until March and I know his routine will change once he is in day care. But for now, it’s all good!
My husband and I are in the process of adopting our first child from Ethiopia. My husband is an awesome man, whom I love with all my heart. We’ve been married for almost two years. God has directed us to adopt from Ethiopia.
