Update x 3

This past week was the week of updates.

Our first update was from the agency saying that the last batch of EPs were submitted. I wish I could say that we were in that batch, but 2012 is going to be our year! (I always tell Matt that years that end in an even number are better, he just laughs) Realistically, we knew we would not be traveling this year, but you never know what could have happened, right? So, my prediction is if everything runs smoothly on both sides of the ocean, we will be traveling to bring Gavin home sometime in the first half of the year. 

The second update was a progress report which included the new pics!

A tidbit is that he enjoys food...and already eats soup, bananas, baby food, cheese, and apple juice. As a first time mama, I'm not sure if this is the norm or not for this age, but it sounds like he has a healthy appetite and by the time he comes home will probably be able to eat what we're eating or we'll eat what he eats, lol!
We can definitely tell our baby boy is loved and cared for and for that we will be eternally grateful. I can't wait until we meet his foster family so we can thank them in person for everything that they have provided for our sweet boy.

Our third update was a well baby check!

Gavin is  about 32 inches and weighs 25 pounds. He has 4 teeth on the top and 4 teeth on the bottom. It looks like he's progressing right along. When we finally meet him he'll probably keep us running in circles, which we will LOVE!

While we wait we are relaxing...and our dogs have it down perfectly!!! Little do they know how much their lives are going to change in 2012!!!


  1. So glad you've been receiving updates to help with the wait. Gavin is such a handsome little guy!

  2. Sorry to hear you have to wait until next year for EP but glad you got some good updates on your little man.
