I have fallen to the statistic.

I have heard that when you start an adoption blog you blog your little heart out because that's about all you can do to pass the time while you wait and wait for your little one to come home. But then they do finally join the family and you drop off the face of the blogging world because you have this new little one to hug and snuggle with all the time. I swore that would NOT be me and I would keep up on the stuff Gavin had been up to. Well the good news is we have had a lot of snuggle time around here, the bad news is I have not blogged since September!
Of course Gavin has been up to A LOT!!
He is LOVING his pre-school class of 12 little boys/ 0 girls. (This is just how the class came together, really we don't have anything against girls.)
Gavin was the Birthday Boy in October when he turned 4.

He was also such a trouper with his first hand surgery at the end of October.

He has also gone on a some day trips with his family in the past few months.

Gavin was in my brothers wedding with his cousin over the holidays.

And got outside to play in our back yard.

Then he celebrated the Chinese New Year at a local festival.

More then anything he has stolen my heart in the last ten months he has been home and we all have had a blast joining him into our crew!
~Blessings, Marla

Yes it was his left hand. You can see the fingers they separated in the picture right before surgery and then a clear picture of the fingers after in the picture at the Chinese New Years celebration. He is just starting to use them individuality, but they had moved as one for four years so I feel he is doing very well with them.
I do wish you all the best as you finish up your adoption and get to meet your new little one. April is so close, but I can understand for your family not close enough. You will be in my prayers.

Thanks for all this précisions ! We will do surgery probably this summer and i ignore for the moment all the possibilities for him. His hands are quite similare as the ones of your son, but the two feet are like the right one of Gavin.
I'll pray for your lovely son too.

He is SO darling! Wow has he grown since you shared him with us back in September. :)
And 12 boys? In one preschool class? Does his teacher have a halo?
Glad to see you guys are doing well!
