Yesterday we took Colson for a visit with the International Adoption Clinic at MUSC. They do specialized evaluations/test for kids that have been adopted internationally. It’s a wonderful thing to have something like that so close to us. Anyhow, he is on track pretty much in every way developmentally and growth wise. A tad on the small side which they will watch over time.

I had long prepared myself for the day when Colson would have to get his first shots, but hadn’t even thought about him having to give blood for tests. At the end of our visit he had to have five yes count them, 5! vials of blood drawn for a multitude of test to be run. Their is no pain like holding down your child while blood is drawn(I’ve heard that a spinal tap is worst, but don’t want to go there).
