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!

"The Rockstar Lifestyle"

One of the members of an Adoption board that I read called the timeshift from China to backhome "The Rockstar Lifestyle". Basically, although there isn't a whole lot of partying going on, there sure is alot of staying up until 3 in the morning! Keira's (as well as our's) body clock has still been in China leaving her wide awake at night ready to play. Dan and I have been trying everything to get her to sleep through the night. We know it's possible! She did it while we were in China! Well, last night was the first successful night. She only woke up once at 1am and wanted her bottle, but other than that, she slept a baby! I'm hoping that the trend continues for tonight, although, I was not successful in keeping her awake and she's out cold right now. I think I'm going to try to get her back up in about 30 minutes or so so that she will be sleepy in a few hours again. Any words of wisdom from those parents out there that have been there done that on getting your kids to sleep through the night at her age? I'm posting pictures of her new "walking wings" which allows her to walk around with us not getting horrible backpain from having to bend over the entire time. Also, there are pictures or her playing with her toy from some of the gang from work. She LOVES this thing!
