Six months ago today.....

in Hubei, China our lives were forever changed by a certain little boy. Today we celebreate half a year with our son. It's so hard to believe that it's already been that long. We are amazed & blessed by him on a daily basis. Amazed that he blended into the family so quickly and blessed that we were chosen to be his forever family.

The other part that blows our minds is how well he & his sister have formed a bond. There are times when we see a side of Maddy that would have never been possible without a sybling. Zeke has come a long way since that first meeting at the Civil Affairs Office in Wuhan. His English is wonderful & his pronouciation since his surgery is remarkable.

Things we have learned about our son:
  • Lately he prefers to be called Yang Yang so we are trying to respect that
  • He loves meatballs
  • He can spot a motorcycle from very far away
  • He makes the funniest sound effects with his mouth (motorcycles, cars, sirens, etc.)
  • He is learning to hold his own with his bossy big sister
  • He does not like having dirty hands or a dirty face
  • He is very friendly & loves to say 'hi' & 'bye' to everyone
  • One of his favorite games is playing pillow pet chase with his sister before bedtime

What a great update! I can't believe it's been six months since we followed your updates in China. Congrats to Yang Yang and the Hinton family. I love the pillow pet photos! : )

He's found his way into all our hearts, more of the Hinton family to love! Grandma Julie would be so pleased to see that they both love their pillow pets!

I miss not being able to see both of them more often! Zeke and Maddy are both fortunate to have "found" such a loving family!
