I think re-hosting Igor a second time has really boosted his self esteem. It’s only been a couple of days but I can tell!
He tried to tell Tyler in broken 10 year old boy English how happy he was that we chose him again. He said to Tyler, “Is nice America. Dis four time! My four time America! First….eh? shrug Second you! Third Sarah. Fourth you me again! Yes! Is nice! I lave you Daddy!”
He knows that we purposefully picked him a second time because we liked him so much the first time. For once in his life someone cared enough to choose him and stick with him. It makes me very happy that he knows this.
