We spent all day today with Matthew. He started reaching out for Mark and I and we got a lot of smiles. He is so happy, calm and laid back. He eats non-stop, I think we feed him at least 4 times in the few hours we were there. We met with the doctor also, they have no concerns and he is healthy. They did reveal that he loves his bottles. When he is finished with his he will reach over and take the child’s bottle beside him. He loves to watch people playing ball, any kind.
It is so hard to leave him there when it is time to go. I took him in to his nannies when it was time to leave for lunch and he clung to me. While that is a good sign, it completely broke my heart. So the rest of the trip Mark will have to take him back. The nannies are still loving on Daniel and the ladies in the medical office remembered him also. He is doing so great with just letting them hug and kiss him and not complaining. He just stands there and smiles.
Here are Daniels thoughts on today (he’s a man of few words today):
Matthew was happier today. He really liked the cars and his surprise from Kiesha, the little blankie.
Tomorrow we go to court. Please pray with us because after this day Matthew will officially be a Heddleson. We can then share pictures.
