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 Gift

Lately Keira has become very aware of her diaper. Ever since we started letting her practice sitting on her Dora potty, she has not liked having her diaper on much. She's gotten better at tugging at her diaper and saying "boo boo". Sometimes one is in there, and sometimes she's just peed. Either way, it's an After The Fact warning and we aren't able to get her to tell us before it happens so that we can get her to a potty on time.

According to the books that I've read, she doesn't seem to have the muscle control yet to keep herself from peeing in her diaper during naps or through the night although she HAS woken up with a dry diaper a few times after a nap. It's still not consistent.

A couple of times now Dan has gone into her room to get her up from her nap and she has had a little gift for him. There she is, standing in her crib. As Dan approaches, she hands him her diaper with a big smile on her face. Thank goodness so far, it hasn't been anything TOO messy :).
