Jude being a stinker

I was amazed yesterday at how many moms posted that they had been in the hospital with special needs children that had been left by their families. I appreciate all the comments, but it is a bit overwhelming. It makes me want to go to the hospitals, and rock all these abandoned babies for awhile. I still firmly believe that if the parents wouldn't treat the child right it is better that they find a family that will love them. Many kudos's to the adoptive parents of special needs children. We do what we can to provide the best life for our son. It is a challenging life though, and to take that responsibility on so willingly is to be commended.

Jude is still eating very well, and his chubby cheeks show that well. Last night my sister came by to have dinner with us. While she was there I told Jude "Show Aunt Chelle how you can put your hand in mommy's hand". I placed my hand on his belly.......and.......he looked the other direction. I said "JUDE, little stinker look at mommy". So he would glance at me, and then turn away real fast, and smile. This went on for several minutes on a repetitive basis, and we were all laughing. Jude was truly playing with me, and I think sister was rather impressed that he was being such a stinker. I was happy that he was communicating, although he never put his hand in my hand, but he made me giggle.

He has done it before so the "never" just applied to last night :)

He was playing with you! :) So great! I like that even better than just following a command. You asked him to follow an instruction and he did something even better!!! He connected with you and your sister. AWESOME!

Charlie will go through a stage where he won't do whatever I ask him to do. He was SO over gimme five for a while, but now it's back.
