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!

I'm sure that I don't have to tell anyone how important it is to start early with reading with children. It was very frustrating with Keira at first because she never wanted to sit still and a reading session would usually last about 10 seconds before she would start trying to tear the pages out of the book or would roll away to play with something else. Thankfully as she gets a little older, she is getting a little more interested in hearing stories. Aside from her attention span growing more and more, I think that another thing that has contributed to her growing interest is Pajamarama.

Pajamarama is a fun activity at Barnes and Noble for children. It's in the evening and children can wear their pajamas and hear Miss Andrea read bedtime stories to them. She is hilarious and really interacts well with the children. She never fails to crack me up since she always has a funny reaction to the little stories that the small children tell her about subjects that range from losing a tooth to what they ate for breakfast.

After she reads a couple of stories, the children can color with crayons and get stickers. Little by little, Keira is getting better at sitting still to hear a story...although sometimes she is all over the place and bouncing off the walls. Those are generally nights that we leave a little early :).

It's open to all ages for young children, so check out your local Barnes and Noble! Here are a few pictures of Keira at Pajamarama as well as one of her wearing one of Dan's hats. How is that tied to Pajamarama? It isn't....I just thought it was cute! lol
