Post Placement Visit

We had our first post placement visit yesterday. It went well. The social worker seemed to think Ade was doing well. It was pretty painless, just a few questions and that was it. It wasn't even an hour long.

I took Ade back to the doctor yesterday, third time in 3 weeks! He hasn't gotten over his ear infections so he had to get a shot and an antibiotic. If this doesn't clear it up then we have to do tubes. Which all 3 of my other kids have had tubes and they were great.

Last night my parents and I took Max and Ella to see So You Think You Can Dance! It was soooo much fun and we all had a blast. We all really had a good time. It was nice to be with the 2 older ones and give them some undivided attention without a baby on my hip! They really enjoyed having Mommy to themselves!

So we have been home a month and here are some things I've noticed about Ade:

-He jabbers all the time.
-He seems to really like his new home.
-He loves his family.
-He can get really mad, not very often but watch out when he does!
-He is silly.
-He loves to dance and sing.
-He is not afraid of dogs.
-He gets tons of attention EVERY place we go!
-He is very busy.
-He requires a lot of attention.
-He signs 4 things now!
-We are trying to teach him what a dog says.
-He requires A LOT of lotions, creams, oils and ointments!!!

Those are just a few things. I think he is blending in well. He is a joy to have around. Very funny and pleasant. He is also a major lover!!! But as I am speaking he is in his bed throwing the biggest fit ever because he is tired and not giving up! It's kind of funny!

On a side note, I had a black mom ask me what I did with Ade's hair and what products I use because his hair and skin look really good! I felt a little pride at that moment! But I know, pride comes before a fall!:) Have a great day!

The 2 pictures are before so the show! WE were giving our best dance moves!


  1. Yay! So happy it went well!

    Eden thinks the dog says "no, no" b/c that's what she tells her all the time!
