First Month Update

I can't believe it has been 4 weeks already. Our family seems to be adjusting fine. We have our bumps but nothing major. Wynston is starting to say and answer by his name. He says "Wynston Belete". We found out he is speaking two Ethiopian languages and we are starting to learn what he is communicating. It is really cute. He likes to repeat so he is also learning more English. I think he understand more English than he speaks. He likes Elmo, Barney, and Thomas the Train mostly. He will watch other Disney shows with the girls. He loves to dance to any kind of music and play with cars or anything that makes noise. We have a very lively house right now. But what he loves more than anything is being with his sisters and playing chase. He seems to get sad sometimes and look out of the window. I wish I could just read his mind. He is a strong little fellow. I feel that he is trusting me more each day. He still cries when I leave the house to walk the dog, or get the mail. It is heart breaking because I just think of all the loss he has had in his life. Hopefully, this phase will go by fast because I need to go back to the gym. Otherwise, we are doing fine. Oh I almost forgot to mention we took him to the pool. He didn't like the water at first but he would put his feet in it from the side. After watching everyone having fun, he loved it. He didn't want to get out. Now he is REALLY my son.
