Earlier today, Dominic and I had the great experience of stopping in for one of our adoption agency's pre-adoption seminars. For those of you that have been reading our blog since the beginning, you might recall that one of the first things in our adoption process was going to a pre-adoption seminar.
I know what y'all are thinking right now. No, we're not starting the process again (yet)! Instead, our agency asked Andy and I if we wanted to stop by a seminar to tell our story as adoptive parents. Because of work and scheduling, it was just me and Dominic heading over to Seattle to talk in front of a few potential adoptive families. Overall, it was really fun. On one level, Dominic got a lot of attention so it was exciting for him. For me, it was interesting to see adoptive families in the same spot that Andy and I were in just 12 months ago. A lot has changed since then considering we have a 4-month old at home now!
Speaking of Dominic being 4 months old now, his 4-month birthday was yesterday! Andy took him in for his latest pediatrician appointment, and the little guy is doing great. He's about 25" long, 13lbs 15oz, and cleared to start trying real foods! This weekend might involve an experiment with rice cereal. The only downer was that he had a fresh round of shots and wasn't overly thrilled for a little while. However, he handled it like a champ and is all better now.
