Today was the first time that TJ visited with his foster family. We were a little apprehensive about the visit – just because we weren’t certain how TJ would react both during and after the visit. It’s been so crazy for the last few days that we got a little too stressed out over it.
The visit ended up being just great. TJ had a lot of fun playing in purses and generally just being his normal self, and after they left he did just fine – no crying or tantrums, just a normal afternoon nap. Normal – in that the afternoon naps don’t seem to go as well as the morning ones.
We seem to be getting into a predictable pattern now, and we’re halfway done with baby gate installations. I’ve got gates on the staircase going from the main floor to the upper floor, so tonight we’ll do the basement “fence” and then finish up with the doorway from the main floor to the basement.
TJ seems to be bonding pretty well with us, and we just couldn’t be happier. He’s a great little guy, and I’m really looking forward to his life with us.
