We have been home a week today with our precious baby. Wow this week has flown by. Maybe because of the tiredness that has come from readjusting back to US time.  I've been worn down. I can say that I've had a clean house considering I have to keep moving to keep my eyes open. ha ha  Reece has done fantastic!!! He is a totally different child than he was 3 weeks ago. When we first got him he was in such shock the poor baby couldn't even function and now he runs all over my house digging in anything he can get his hands on! I know he still has a long way to go. There are times he may wake up crying and upset and there are times he wakes up smiling from ear to ear. There are times he lets me hold him and love on him and there are times he's all boy and he has better things he'd rather be digging in rater than letting mama hug on him.  He's learning it's safe here and with that safety, his personality shines! He is so precious. He has a smile that will melt your heart!  Our girls have been loving him being here.  Maegan has had a little trouble at times as she realizes her brother messes up her room or she has to share HIS toys with him. She's use to being the baby. However she is still doing wonderfully. This is a huge change for everyone but everything seems to be going smoothly for now. I couldn't have asked for a better week. We even went grocery shopping. As much as I didn't want to, I was out of food. My kids had no more milk, breakfast nor lunch they could dig up so I loaded them all up and off we went. They did great! Same on chaos like normal! HA!!! Reece does not talk. Not even in Chinese. He grunts and points to get his point across but i'm not sure if he CAN talk or if he's choosing not to talk. He has appointments next week with pediatrician and also with eye doctor. Please pray for him as I'm sure he's fixing to zone out on them. He does that when he's overwhelmed. He zones completely out. We have also realized very early on he does not know how to suck a bottle, sippy cup, nothing. I know we will be in need of a great OT for him. Pray that God leads us to where we need to be and who will be the best help for him. Thank you all for your prayers and your support as our new journey with 5 kiddos begin! It's going to be a great summer!!! :)
