Update on Dean

We have an update from China regarding Hudson Dean!  No news about travel yet, but we'll take what we can get!!

First of all, I got new measurements and he is very tall.  As in, 42.5 inches tall and 40 pounds!!  That puts him at about the 90th percentile for height and weight on the N. American growth charts.  He is so much bigger than Ella!  

Here is the report I got about him:

Fu Tian Suo is an outgoing, piquant child. He likes to go out with his foster grandpa. He likes to watch the cars going in the street. At home, he likes to watch cartoon. His favorite toy is car. He doesn’t like spicy food, he is not picky on other food. His favorite drink is “Le Bai Shi” and “Wa Ha Ha” (they are very popular children’s drink).

Tian Suo is a good sleeper. He gets up around 6:00am, and drinks some milk. He has breakfast at 7:00am, some snack at 9:00am. Lunch at 11:00am, 1:00pm drink some milk and then take a nap. More snack at 3:00pm, dinner at 6:00pm. 9:30pm drink some milk and then go to bed. He sleeps through the night.

His updated measurements are:

Height: 108cm; Weight: 18.42kg; Head: 50cm; Chest: 56cm; Teeth: 20

I got three pictures that were taken in different time. He is a good looking boy and so sweet!!!  

What a thrill to hear he's a good sleeper!  Clearly, he is meant to be in the Spicer family.  

I think this first picture is from last winter, and the next two are the most recent.  Isn't he a cutie patootie!!  Note the Pooh bear in the background of the first picture, covered in plastic.  Apparently the foster parents did that, as well as covering their couch in plastic, too.  Another cultural difference, I guess....

What a handsome little guy! He's TALL. (Of course, that's coming from a house of shorties). Praying you get to travel soon. It is such a concern when having to leave other children behind. Praying for the best possible answer.
