Summer Fun for Our Thai Surfer Boy!

I just realized today that it has been so long since I last posted an update.  Trit is doing much better these days.  Last week he actually slept in his own bed through the night for 4 nights!  This is a major triumph for us and we are hopeful that this will continue.  He still does not fall asleep until 9 pm or so & is awake by 5 am, but at least we feel he is getting a better night's sleep.  He also seems to be doing better at pre-school.  He only cries now when I drop him off, but now is not crying through the day much to my relief.  I already had so much guilt about having to go back to work & knowing he was so miserable at first was awful for me. 
He is such a precious little boy & we love him so much.  He is adventurous, fun-loving & can be quite the charmer.  I think our family is just as enamored with him as we are!  He also loves his big sister, but unfortunately he tries to give her "love bites"! 
Trit loves water & playing outside.  Too bad there are no beaches in TN., but he certainly loves any type of water & even tried to "surf" recently:)

So glad to hear about some of Trit's breakthroughs! He certainly is a doll and we're happy he's feeling more comfortable at preschool and at night. Keep up the posts!
