Capturing Events

Samson had his first haircut in December. Steve had to keep one hand on him because he was a little nervous.....

...but he sat perfectly still the whole time

and we think he actually enjoyed his first cut.

Also, we are so amazed by Samson's growth since he has been home. He is a BIG eater! When we first received his referral information in May, his measurement were not on the US charts. now he is in the 50% for weight and 25% for height.

His favorite thing to eat for lunch is fried eggs. Some days he can eat 3 fried eggs and sometimes steals some of my peanut butter toast before he seems satisfied. I remember when Olivia was hospitalized at age 4 for a reaction towards an antibiotic. She was sick for 4 weeks, could not keep any food down for 21 days. At the end of her illness and when she got her appetite back, she ate 4 jumbo-sized fried eggs a day for one week. Her body was craving protein. Based on his big growth spurts, Samson's body must still be catching up as well.

Anyway, when we first came home with him, his head would clear the granite on the center island. Now, he has grown 3 inches and towers above the island:

His growth marks on our wall:

We are starting to add more playdates with other boys into our schedule. This was his first Dress Up playdate with a friend:
