Can't wait for Tuesday

We're still in shock about how fast the adoption came through. Now we're counting down the minutes until Zeke is in Bailey hands, which appears to be Tuesday. He's in great care in the meantime, though. The foster family is a pediatric cardiologist and his stay at home wife. She wrote us last night with some more about Zeke

Zeke had a good day today. (So did I since he slept for a 4-hour stretch last night!) Usually, though, he eats every 2 1/2 hours or so. He is becoming more and more social, looking around and taking in his new world. He is a VERY happy baby, and very calm. When he wakes up hungry, he stops crying when I pick him up and waits patiently for his bottle! He has been taking about 1-1/2 ounces before taking a break, having a diaper change, and then finishing off the 2 ounces. He does not spit up, or drool much. Truly amazing. He will love his brothers and sisters! He already enjoys watching our grandson, Gus, and allowing Gus to love him as a two-year old might. He does not need swaddling, but sleeps peacefully, stretched out, or cradled in our arms or on the couch. A real delight.

We can't wait to meet him!
