Day after Gotcha Day

Daniel slept very well his first night with us. All in all he slept 12 hours the first night, solid straight through. When he awoke the next morning, he was in his typical good humor mood.

Wednesday was a much slower paced day. Katia picked us up at 9:15 and we went directly to the hospital for Daniel's exit medical review. Dr. Morodova, who was the doctor who did his initial medical review in the orphanage back in January, was the doctor who did his exit review. Basically a subset of the original review, Daniel did very well. Dr. Morodova commented that the only issues he can see with Daniel is his food alergies and the fact that his weight is a little low for a child his age, which of course can be attributed to having been in an orphanage for the last 9 months of his life.

Next, off we went to the American Embassy. Katia and I went in and filed the paperwork to get Daniel's American visa. We'll return to the embassy tomorrow for the exit interview there.

The rest of the day was a freebie! We stayed around the apartment, spending time with Daniel, playing and getting to know one another. He's all boy!!!

We gave him his first bath last night, didn't go quite as planned. He didn't want to sit in the tub so he stood the entire bath. After bath and a bottle, he was out like a light. He sleeps very well and goes out very quickly on his own.

More later...
