Letter Seeking Confirmation

This picture was the first update picture that we received after we confirmed that we would take Kang. We received this in September and he was 7 months old.

Well I am very excited to report that we are finally in our 3rd trimester of pregnancy! Tomorrow we will receive the official Letter Seeking Confirmation stating that Wu Zheng Kang is ours! So what happens next you may ask??? More of the same...more rush rush paperwork out the door, waiting to be approved by the US Government, Visa applications, Consulate appointments and eventually our travel dates approximately 3 months from now.
It is both exciting and stressful at the same time.

We received the following update in November, however, I thought I would share it with you:

Now, he is 9 months old. He could sit up with the hold of caretakers. Due to the cold weather, he wears a lot of clothes, and he could not try to crawl with so thick clothes. He could control his head now. He has a ready smile, and even can laugh aloud with two dimples. He is a very lovely little boy. Caretakers and neighbors all love him very much. They give him some gifts, like clothes and toys, and they love to hug him in the arms. He is very cute now and murmurs something. When in the crib, he plays with his two feet, kicking all the time with funny. He loves to watch TV, go outsides on the street and enjoy sunshine. When the weather is not good, he will be unhappy because he could not go outsides. He is a little strong man and he never cries out when he gets immunization shots.

Currently, his height is 27.58 inches, head circumference is 16.94 inches, chest circumference is 17.34 inches, weight is 17.6 pounds (he is a little thinner due to diarrhoea in these days), and foot length is 4.73 inches. He has 4 teeth totally, 2 upper teeth and 2 lower teeth. He eats porridge, milupa, eggs and some noodles, etc. He drinks milk 5-6 times per day. He generally goes to bed at 22:00 pm, and wakes up in the midnight if he feels hungry or has a pee. He gets up at 8:00 am, and later, he enjoys nap at 10:00 am for an hour. He has noon nap from 13:00 pm to 16:00 pm.

Based on these reports Kang might be bigger than Bei was at 27 months!
