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!

A Very Full Day!

Yesterday, we had a new security system put into the house. It took pretty much most of the day so Keira was pretty much bouncing off the walls with boredom. She was pretty much kept confined most of the time in the pigpen since there were all sorts of tools flying around and drilling--dangerous stuff for babies to be around. Because we were both bored, we started being silly as you can see from the picture. That was my headband and Keira started putting it on her head, so I helped her a little bit. The guy doing the security system was even laughing at her being silly. After that, she took a nap and I had to take a picture of her because it was such a strange position she was sleeping in! It looked like she was sitting up, then bent over and fell asleep still sitting. Somehow her Hello Kitty baby also was on top of her as well.

After he finished, we headed to Walmart to buy a couple of things and wouldn't you know it. I wasn't gone more than about 10 minutes when Brinks was calling me to inform me that the alarm had gone off. Looks like the motion was set a little too sensitive and caught Jackson's tail wagging.

Today, we had a very full day! We went to the gym in the morning and she got to play at the daycare. After that, she took a nap, then we headed over to Kaiser to get the results read for her TB test (negative of course!). We then headed up to Trabuco Canyon for our Post Adoption Meeting. Betty, the Director was AMAZED with how great Keira was doing and adjusting! She gave me a great tip with her bottle feedings at night. I told her how she would wake up in the middle of the night still wanting another bottle. She said to add a little bit of Olive Oil in her bottle along with the rice cereal. That will give a little more of the good fats that might keep her fuller at night. We'll see if it works, I gave her a little tonight. After we left from there, there was SOOOO much traffic that we sat in it for way too long! Keira was screaming and singing. I think that the screaming was still supposed to be singing but bless her heart, I might have to get her some singing lessons! :) After we got home, we went to Barnes and Noble for Pajamarama! All of the kids come dressed in their pajamas for storytelling, coloring and playing. It was alot of fun and Keira did a great job with behaving herself. She sat quietly on the bench because everyone else was, so she was copying them, but as soon as it was ok for all of the kids to go on the stage, it turned into anarchy! It was every baby for themselves and so much fun! They also have Mom and Tot Storytime on Tuesday and Wednesdays. I think that we'll have to make the journey to that!

It sure looks like Keira is adjusting quite well in her loving environment. Great Job Mom and Dad.
