Superhero Is On The Move!

Jett's bedhead hair and the many faces of this little man in the morning!
Snuggling with big sister in the morning.
He loves to run around in his superhero costumes!
Right now, he's a big Spiderman fan (though he has never seen a movie or show with Spidey in it) and he is convinced that he can capture people with his webs.
Kinda hard to pretend you have muscles when you are that skinny. Seriously, this boy eats but has only gained 1-2 pounds since we've been home. If he'd stop all that running and jumping, he might could gain weight!

Today is the day that we all will go to Memaw's house. We've been home for over 9 months now, but this will be our first family visit to JT's mom's house. She's been here several times but we will travel this time. What a blessing this has been to not have to travel for a while. Since we travel as part of our occupations, we love to be home! Jett has some issues with traveling and being away from home, so this will be a challenge. Most people don't get to see the ugly, painful and hurtful side of the adoption issues, but just know, that we, like most adoptive parents, have serious issues to deal with that are often intensive and long-lasting.
Jett is doing well - he has started preschool with the family. He usually last about 1 1/2 hours each day. We've spent time learning our letters especially the vowels (or owls as he likes to call them), learning to articulate the ending sounds of words, counting to 20, etc. He can write his name, all of his vowels and even sound out a few words. He'll be reading in no time.
