The Weekend of Happiness And Lots of Surprises!

Wow where do I begin..... Lets start with this. I got this package in the mail from my dear friend Cora from Waiting 4 Little Miss Whats Her Name for the hat ornament swap that we did. In it was this great baseball cap and so fun Rudolph ornament that his nose blinks on and off! Super fun and cute to boot!! I can't wait to see Jon Jon in the adorable hat!

Yep in my eyes he will be my little All Star!!

The image of the ornament was blurry. It is super fun and colorful!

Thank You So Much Cora!! We love them.

On Friday I went to the Dr's. I had X-Rays taken and everything looks great in my ankle. I have 2 pins and one anchor. So, I got a walking boot and the okay to weight bear as tolerated, to slowly wean myself off of the knee walker and crutches. The other thing he said was I could start driving without the boot which means I will have to take it off and on in the car. Hum mm... not sure how that will work! I have 2 weeks to practice with Mom and Dad here and hubby home. I can go swimming too as the wounds are healed. So, I have had about 2 days and I am doing okay. Going up and down the stairs with one crutch, sometimes using the knee walker, sometimes just resting as it feels tired and painful. It will be a day by day healing process.

We got some wonderful news from Ann also yesterday besides the care package. She was finally able to get updates on Jon Jon !! Not only that we also got some new pictures that were taken on Friday!!! I am so excited. My baby is still a baby and not as grown up as I thought from the last series of pictures in the fall. I have to admit though that he looks sad and concerned in these pictures. It makes me wonder if they have told him already he is going to be adopted.
So, by his measurements he is still in 12-18 mos size clothes. We are planning on taking 18-24 mos sizes for him. I was thinking maybe a size 2T but they might be too big on him. He is 31" tall and weights 24 lbs. Since April 2009 he has grown 2.5" and gained almost 6 lbs.

I bet you are all dying to see his new pictures.... Here he is!!!

He is such a little peanut and so cute!! The split pants crack me up.

I can't wait to kiss those adorable rosy cheeks!! I always love it that he has bright and colorful shoes on too. I wonder if he will want colored shoes..... as he gets older?

He is definitely my Sweet Cheeks Baby Cake!

Aww Jody, Jon Jon is SO ADORABLE! I can only imagine what an amazing gift it was to receive this update with recent pictures...I can't wait to see the pictures from China with Jon Jon in his Mommy's and Daddy's arms!

So glad you are healing and able to gradually move away from the crutches, etc. Hoping that the discomfort is soon a thing of the past. You'll be skipping in time for China! ;)
