2 Weeks

It's been 2 weeks since Charlie has joined our family.

It's so weird. It feels like it was yesterday that I was walking through the gate in San Francisco being SO incredibly glad that I was on US soil and not trapped on the plane with a screaming child. But at the same time, I can't believe that Charlie has only been here for two weeks - he really feels like he's always been a part of our family. 

We've seen a ton of progress with Charlie. He's responding more to 'Charlie' and I find myself calling out 'Min-hyeok-ah' less and less. (Which actually makes me a bit sad) I keep forgetting that he still doesn't understand the majority what what I say to him (if not all of what I say) and I decided that I'm going to start being more intentional in pointing things out to him. Like when I give him his bottle, make more of an emphasis of saying 'bottle' (and pointing) before he drinks it. 

Tomorrow I'm going to take Claire to check out a Pre-school. I was going to put her in pre-school back in September, but since I wasn't sure when I would get 'the call' (and I had NO IDEA how long it would take ME to adjust) I decided last minute to pull her out. Also, according to Charlie's WBC's, it was going to cost me approximately $400 a month to pay for Charlie's stinky special formula, and come to find, he's actually drinking a fraction of that, so I guess Claire doesn't have to take one for the team anymore and we can afford to pay for her schooling (the joys of being the eldest sibling). I'm thinking that she'll enjoy having something fun for just her that she gets to do. But you never know... sometimes she's clingy when I least expect it. 

So that's my update. Kinda boring. But that's just life these days. 
Okay so maybe not boring... more like tiring. 

and that's due to this little guy:

goes to show you can never under estimate the 6th percentile!

I think I had a harder time adjusting to Briar going to preschool than she did, but now I love it (shhhh!!) and she mostly loves it, too.
Charlie is such a doll!
