We got back to our room after 7 and he was goofy. He had teased the waitress, played with his food, got some laughs from all of us, and began to smile and chatter with her at dinner. As we left he turned around and had to find her again to say good bye 3 times. When we got back to the room, he and Isaac played and got all silly with a beach ball. And the silliness pretty much has been going on for about and hour and a half. I do not know if he will sleep tonight, but he is happy...2 glasses of coke will do that to a small 7 year old I guess. Right now, I don't really care. It has brought him around and our evening has been one laugh after another. He's crazy!!!!
Of course I believe it is all of your prayers for our family and God's intervention in all of this that has caused such a rapid turn of events.
Right now he has taken all of his stuff and moved and set up camp in what was Isaac's room/get away...I think the brotherly connection has been made. It took 4 trips back and forth between rooms for him to get it all over there, but it's all ready to go...=) Everytime he comes back into our room from Isaac's room, he says "Hallow"...or "Hallo momma", etc. It's just so stinkin' cute. He's trying the language out on us.
We gave him a bath and actually changed his clothes today before dinner also. He loved that. He just laid on his back and floated. He's very independent and completely washed his hair all by himself, asked for a comb and asked to have his hair blow dried.
I must also say, we noticed an added difference in his sweet little legs and feet. He only has 2 toes on each foot. His little feet look "wrong" since I'm not medically knowledgable, I have no idea if he's missing bones or what it is. Although it doesn't seem to stop him much. He jumped off a chair tonight.
Did I mention his obsession with our cameras? That was also very entertaining this evening. He made the 3 of us get together and he took pictures of us as he giggled and made roaring sounds.
God is SOOOO GOOD! There just is no other explanation for this rapid change.
