We were so excited to get an update on this little guy today! The perfect Christmas present for us. It makes Kyle and I so happy that he seems to be doing well. This is very good news, especially since there have been some concerns with his development. He seems to be making big strides lately! Here is the message we received (this is as November 30th)...
YoSeb is an active little boy who prefers to be outdoors and enjoys playing ball, with toys that have strings or electronics like cell phones or the remote control. If someone takes his toy away from him, he shows his temper. Then his foster mother talks to him and brings his favorite toy to him to calm him down. He is not typically shy and if he is in a good mood, he is fine with strangers. He is doing better developmentally and can stand alone and take up to 2 steps unassisted. He can say “omma”, “mam-ma” (food), and“ pa-pa”. If we say to him “ po-po”, he gives a kiss. He attempts to wave. He can do “ jam-jam” (open and close hands) and clap. He stares at person to copy the behavior.
YoSeb drinks formula twice a day, morning and evening. He prefers to eat rice rather than formula. If he is sleepy, he sways his body back and forth. If he does not take a nap, he goes to sleep after bathing around 8 pm. He wakes up immediately if he hears sound while sleeping. If he takes a nap, he goes to sleep from 10pm and wakes up 3 am for a feeding. Then he wakes up for good at 10 am. There is another foster child, aged 17 months, at the foster home that he like to play with. On YoSeb’s birthday celebration, he grasped money from Tol table. The foster mother will send the pictures taken during the party.
As of Nov. 30, weight 11.15kg, height 77.8cm.
