I am currently sitting in a chair, in a frigid cold hotel room, with my fabulous son sound asleep on my lap. He is simply amazing and today went better than we could have ever imagined!
He is really smart, seems to understand and even listen to what we are saying and our instructions. He is having an awesome time playing with the "Ninas", and is truly adorable in every way! He was laughing with us with in the first half hour. He called AMP "Papi" and wants me to pick him up and hold him when he is sad. When he and AMP were playing, AMP at one point stood up to go get the ball that had rolled across the room. Pollo started yelling at him in Spanish, and all the women in the room started smiling and told AMP, "he is saying Don't go!" The three kiddos are having a great time playing together. He doesn't speak any English at all, but pointing and wild gesturing seem to do the trick for the most part. He is a, dare I say it and jinx myself royally, potty trained! He is all boy - He loves to play with the firetruck we brought him, and loves to throw the ball around. He has a little accordion that his foster mother said he loved to play with, and boy, he loves that thing!
He does miss his foster mother a lot, and he asked for several times, but that is to be expected. He is just amazing, and I love him so much already! My girls were also amazing, Chicken Little was just giving and understanding with him and with the whole unruly situation today - She turned on her charm and had the whole ICBF office in stitches. Chicken Nugget went without a nap all day, and was still amazingly patient and sweet. I love my three children, and I really love that they are now all together, here in the crazy coop!
Note: We have been advised to not post pictures until the adoption is finalized by a Colombian court. Unfortunately, this will probably take three weeks. For those of you who haven't seen pictures, you will just have to trust me, he is a very handsome little boy.
