The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

Daddy's Girl....or Mommy's Girl?

Dan made a little comment the other day that cracked me up. He said as he was putting Keira's bib on her "Keira, you seem to only have things that say I love mommy, but nothing that says I love daddy." I heard this and responded that she did... her burping cloth says I love daddy. His response? NICE! She loves daddy when she's throwing up...
Today I took Keira with me down to work for Sonja's Baby Shower! Sonja is going to be leaving hopefully VERY soon to bring her daughter Raquel home with her from Guatemala. We started our adoptions at about the same time and unfortunately, there was a hold up last month due to some issues with the paperwork. I'm so glad that everything has gotten straightened out and now she is only waiting for her travel date. Keira got to say hello to everyone and be a ham. I think if it were more towards the end of the day, Natalya just might have taken her home with her! :). Keira was giving Laura V. and Natalya kisses and was being a very good girl. She did have a bit of a meltdown on the way home though. It's a good thing that I was prepared this time since the last meltdown and brought a bottle with me. Although we are trying to wean her off her bottle, I think that it is an exception when she is having her random meltdown. She still cried while she had her bottle, but it did calm her down enough to fall asleep. It's so weird. It's like she is SOOOOO tired and doesn't know what to do with herself, so he cries and screams.
I unfortunately didn't get to take pictures at Sonja's shower, but I did take some pictures of Keira tonight after her bath and dressed in her sweats that she is using as pajamas tonight since it's a colder night. Dan was laughing so hard because it's the first time that she is wearing something other than pink! lol She was staring at herself in the mirror and was looking at her rear. Dan said she looked like she was thinking "Does this diaper make my butt look big?" Too funny! So is she a daddy's girl or a mommy's girl tonight?'s a hint. Dan graduated from SDSU ;).

Glad that Keira is feeling better.

And was there any doubt that Keira would be a mommy's girl?
