Seven weeks ago yesterday, we received Ethan from the foster family and the adoption agency in Seoul, Korea. It’s been quite a ride so far. We thought we’d share an update on how Ethan is doing.
Today, Ethan made his second trip to the pediatrician since we’ve been home. It was a good doctor visit, except for the two shots/immunizations Ethan received.
Interestingly, the information given to us about Ethan’s routine in Korea has been no help to us. His routine here is completely different, and all for the better, really. In Korea, he was going to bed late and getting up late. He was also getting up for a bottle once or twice a night. And, he was taking three short 20 to 30-minute naps every day.
Here, once he made the time zone adjustment has been going to sleep around 8:30 pm and getting up about 11 hours later. And for about the last 5 weeks, he has been sleeping straight through the night!
Ethan normally takes 2 naps a day — late morning (about 3 hours after he gets up in the morning) and late afternoon (about 4 hours after getting up from his morning nap).
At 7 weeks, Ethan is doing very well.
