It's so hard to believe that it was just six months ago today that we returned home from Russia with Jack. The six months leading up to our court date seemed to last forever while the six months we have been home have flown by.
So half a year ago Jack stepped into a world that most likely scared him to death. Now he owns this place and Michelle and I are just happy to be living in his world. Happy Six Months little guy!
We had our six month check-up with the pediatrician yesterday. Everything checks out fine, and the doctor is very happy with his progression in all areas, though the doctor commented on Jack's anxiety (he freaks out at doctors offices) by saying: "don't worry, we see this with 'normal' kids too...you know, biological kids". Doc, we expected more from you in that department... But, thanks for the reminder that we will always have these types of comments in our lives and that we need to prepare ourselves for our responses now so that when Jack is old enough to understand what is being said we can diffuse the situation.
The video below is of Michelle getting home from work the other day. We all get a little excited when she gets home! Hope you enjoy it. We sure have enjoyed watching Jack bloom over the last 6 months!
