Well, it's actually only been one month today that we have been home! Yet, the 3-month from court date is due and our social worker is on her way.
It feels a bit longer that we have been home with Eli. It feels like he has always been in our family! Dave and I are amazed at how he fits in and how he is adjusting. He is a smart, sensitive, respectful and obedient young man. He has come up with two full sentences this week and completely trusts us in everything. He helped Dave reconstruct the deck with great ability using a chisel and hammer. He cleaned his brother's land mine of a room. He taught himself how to skate board in ten minutes (maybe less)...
It's not all perfect...he tattles on everything his sister does, and is becoming addicted to the PS2. He has a tendency to pout when asked to get off the gaming station and do something else.
So far, it's not like anything we haven't already been through (except for Lauren, perhaps). He couldn't be luckier to have a more patient and kind big sis, but right now it's all about getting in good with big brother, I think.
