I'm going to have to cut back on my usual ramblings today because I'm fighting some serious exhaustion. Also, I only have a very small window of time before Henry wakes up.
Picking him up at the airport Tuesday night was wonderful!! It really couldn't have gone any better. He went right into my arms without tears and was just looking around at everyone for the longest time. Just before we left the airport, he began to laugh, smile, and play pat-a-cake. It was so cute!
Here are some quick things that I've learned about our new son:
He LOVES to eat! His escort told us several times that he ate a lot. Anytime he sees food he gets really, really excited.
He hates to be strapped into things (carseat, stroller, highchair).
He quickly became fascinated with the doggies and wants to play ball with Rocky all of the time.
He hates taking a bath...with a passion.
He quickly attached himself to me and won't really let me out of his sight. It's very sweet, but also sad too, because it shows how scared he is.
He really likes having his picture taken. Our family was his personal paparazzi on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning and he really hammed it up!
He is having a hard time sleeping at night. He tosses, kicks, flips around, etc. most of the night. He is sleeping in our bed with us because that is the usual way families sleep in Korea. Thus, we are really not getting much sleep either. I know that he's also jet lagged, so that's a big factor too.
***Okay, this post has been on our computer for 24 hrs, and since it doesn't look like Mary is going to have time to finish it, I'm going to submit it for her.
Things have been going well. We are very tired, but very happy. We have lots of pics and video, and when we have time, we'll put them up on the blog.
