a nice little pick-me-up

today I got Charlie's August WBC

it was a pleasant surprise as it arrived late in the afternoon

things are looking pretty good

he's definitely progressing, and it made me smile when 
I saw that he is now sitting by himself,
pulling himself up on furniture,
walking while holding onto furniture,
and he's even just starting to stand 'alone'. 

this is a pretty big deal to me as the month before
we was just starting to sit - with poor balance.

he's still a month behind developmentally, which I actually think is fantastic.
when we first looked at his file he was 2-3 months behind. 
so I'm super proud of him.

and the icing on the cake was that there was a photo. 
(I've blurred out our Foster Mom's face for privacy)

this picture cracks me up for 2 reasons:

Charlie totally has 'old man hair'
I think they dumped the care package on the table
and then took the photo. 

but regardless, I'm so happy to see that he's doing well.
he's still a small peanut at 16.5lbs
but he'll fit right in with his Noona. 

So keep up the good work Charlie - Omma is coming soon!
