During this week, Grady began to really smile socially at us. When he smiles, his entire face crinkles up. I, of course, started crying as soon as he repeat smiled at me. It may have been partial exhaustion on my part, but it sure sent my heart soaring.
Jane, our Lutheran Social Services social worker, came to visit us on Thursday, March 25. We were thrilled to introduce her to our new son. She will visit us two more times before the adoption is final in six months.
Grandma Arlene also came to visit this week, and she brought Grady a chicken who sings a song to the tune of the chicken dance, flaps his wings, and moves his beak. Grady is mesmerized and a bit afraid of the loud chicken!
